      I have been into Koi for like a week but am already dreaming about breeding a specific type/color or whatever some day in the future, and this fish is it. I'm learning as much as I can, as fast as I can but Koi genetics are no easy undertaking and so I have no idea how to breed a Koi like this but I would love to know the recipe. It's purple and metallic, two of my favorite things.

      lol - your enthusiasm will get you far! this one was definitely an accident. I have the likely father as a ginrin karasu (or perhaps a really dark soragoi?), I'm as close to certain as one can the mother was a big orange matsuba. But my fish are all purchased in the $10-$50 range, mostly from a local breeder, so I'm far from super high quality fish here, and no Japanese stock.

      My most expensive, nicest Koi were $18.00. I'm not trying to spend too much money until I learn more.

      This is an admirable goal, but one that requires a ton of effort, time and resources. For some good reading, check out Koirgrl 's posts on her breeding program. She has the exact same goal as you are stating...
