      Please judge my new koi

      Hello, I am new to the koi hobby. Just got 6 new koi one month ago 5 of which Im showing. My pond is only 500 gal(the biggest my mom would let me) so when the fish get too large, i may have to sell them. I want to keep a pair of these fish to breed in my grandma's 1000 gal pond. I am wondering how much potential these fish have and how much they would be worth in a year(i have a very good uv filtration system which allows me to feed the koi a lot, so hopefully they will grow a lot). Also i am wondering, which of these fish would be good as a breeding pair, assuming that they are opposite genders of course. My kigoi/or ogon, not quite sure which it is, is extremly friendly and eats out of my hand, I dont know if this raises its worth or not. Also, it'd be helpful if u guys could identify my koi for me, cause im not to sure about my koi identifying skills. I belive that the koi shown are: Taisho Sanke, Taisho Sanke plus partial Tancho, Yambuki Ogon, Kujaku, and some sort of Matsuba. My koi are all about 5-6 inches long except the Ogon which is about 8. Thanks! (sorry for bad image quality)

      Please don't feel offended but this section is for koi that are being graded as far show quality your koi are a bit to small for that kind of scrutiny but I like the last one, please post in the section for less scrutiny and welcome to the forum

      Ok thanks, i like the last one too, but it's belly has a large white spot which disrupts the pattern of the fish as it is only on one side. Ill move this over to a different section if i can figure out how, otherwise ill just create a new post in a different section. Thanks!

      Moderators need to move a thread to another forum but I'd be happy to move it for you'd rather it be in the "Less serious critique" forum.
      Just let me know for sure...
