      Showa Spawn from the mother city Cape Town South Africa

      Hi guys.

      I need some help identifying the sex of this koi. They about 3 to 4 years and 45 to 50cm. I would like to breed them. Just need help identifying the sex as I dont realy want to sedate and press their belly's that's beyond my experience.

      I'll post pics with the last 2 being my main question Mark's.

      Post 7 & 8, female. On post 6 leading ray on the pectoral fin it's short but very thick, if you can feel the koi cheeks for any roughness like sand paper thats a indicator of male but not 100%, get a partner with the camera to snap a picture of the buisness end (close up) while you flip it up side down and come back with the picture. That will get you a clearer response

      Hi!

      I don't usually jump in (daily lurker) but I thought that since nobody pointed it out yet, it was needed to, just in case.
      From the last pic I can see some redness on the fins and that may be carp pox, I am no expert on that and breeding but it may not be a good idea to breed a koi that is not at 100% condition since there may be stress specially for the females (I am not sure if breeding is fine with a koi having carp pox or infection).
      Hopefully anybody with more experience can give a better response.

      Cheers!
