Thank you... I think so. Its funny- I added these two to the current QT residents - 4 other small fish & Scarlet. Needless to say it was an awesome weekend watching them play. They all came out of their shell- and the new folks & the old folks had a blast. Silly fishes.

I've finally named this gem.

geisha

She is so artful - in the way she moves, her paint, her attitude. It perfectly describes her.

We are moving to the big pond in a few days so I will take photos & measure then

Whatever you say. We'll see when she gets moved if she is a he with knowledge of tape or not.

Weird body.

koiaddict

What do you mean? I know the photos are crappy- stressful time catching so photos were hurried. Perhaps the angle or the really wide shoulders?

Carl

I noticed that my SU's had really large humps, too.

What is weird about it? It looks like a nice Nisai body to me.

I think that is the omasako shiros they tend to have powerful looking bodies . I compare my growout shiro to the sanke the shiro has a big shoulder like a linebacker . lol I think that is a desirable trait .

yellow head - Geisha is a guy ? :harhar:

You are correct, Geisha is a BOY- MILT and all.

rehomed? Why?

Male, top of tail is shorter then lower portion, and while this one photographs better, my other is of higher quality.

I have been gifted very high quality fish (for my pond) and need the room, and they are males so Id like to keep the population ratio in check.

My pond is evolving, this is one step.
