      A few of my koi - thoughts?

      These are just a few of my Koi, wanted to post them here for your thoughts. I ddint want to net anymore this morning as I didnt want to stress them all out. I have also just stopped feeding color food, so the whites are a bit off. They are all in a 24" bowl for size perspective. 2 and 3 year olds.

      Thanks!

      I want to fatten them up a bit, but too afraid of overfeeding and putting too much load on the filters.

      They could stand some more girth, but they look beautiful!

      Do you know the breeder of the second one? It looks like a Mukashi Ogon?

      Thanks! The 2nd fish is usually a lot darker (more gold than anything else).

      It would be nice if they grow a little bit wider, but not to the point where they get bloated like the ones in Japanese farms
