      Can a Ki Utsuri turn into a Hi Utsuri?

      I bought 2 yellow/black Ki Utsuri from NDK about a year ago and now they look more orange-ish. Is this normal or common?

      Could you post pictures of before and after of these koi to see if we could see indicators that they were going to change down the road.

      Yes, Ki Utsuri tend to get darker (yellow to orange) as they get older. That is why a good mature Ki Utsuri is hard to find purchasing on line.

      I believe when they mature they do Change their colors. I think that’s normal
