      Ki Utsuri - Male or Female?

      So, this is my first koi. It's a rescue from someone's pond, no history on it whatsoever. I've had exactly 2 months and it's grown about 2" and gotten fatter since May 10th. It's 6.5-7" long right now. Can you all tell me the sex and the quality by the pics? I am using a high protein feed for color and orange slices for Vitamin C. Anything else to enhance or that I can do to help him/her be awesome?

      Thanks in advance.

      These 1st three pics were taken in June

      These last pics were taken yesterday. Sorry for the poorer quality, it's very quick and I didn't want to freak it out trying to net it. The head is very solid yellow, almost a "highlighter" color, not deep yellow. Also, not nearly as many black patches on its sides. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. ??

      I am very new at this. Is that good or bad, like "preferred" or rare or anything?

      It is simply a trait. Well recognized and appreciated by many. It's all taste and preferences.
