      mystery fish...ery

      pond spawn survivor. this guy is about 12" now, he's a metallic silver base with what I think is a poor man's version of a goromo pattern (whereever there is orange it's layered in black (excepting the head). I do have rather hard water, so darker colors come out in my pond.

      Let me know if you can categorize him

      I think ginrin sumi goromo but it's a pretty unique kawarigoi.

      It is like a ginrin goromo with goshiki background and maybe some hint of showa. Basically, I don't know what I am talking about.

      I like it, and I am curious what may have been crossed to produce this one. What varieties of koi, females and males, do you think may have been possible parents? Do you have a kujaku? I wonder if this could be a cross between a kujaku and a non-metallic ginrin of some kind.

      The way I see this one, all the OP wanted was an opinion as to what might had been produced in his pond during a flock spawn and some of you just decided to degrade his thread.

      Remember this is the "mutt" forum so the OP might not be looking for quite as harsh a critique as the "serious"
      one.

      my best guess on parentage is an aka matsuba female with a ginrin karasu (or maybe a really dark ginrin sorogoi? , it's black and sparkly anyway lol) male.

      I also have a couple showa males and I had an asagi female spawn around the same time. I don't really have any other metallic fish in the pond, no kujakus for sure

      thanks Orlando, but I'm a big boy and I've been on the internet long enough to not have any hurt feelings. My guess is rain was trying to be funny and it just missed the mark given the forum is specifically FOR "crappy" fish - happens to me all the time and more times than not he's one of my favorite posters (when he's not taking cheap shots at my fishes). no harm, no foul.

      Sound possible, though I would have guessed one of the parents would have been patterned, rather than both solid color.

      my best guess, it's a bit of a crap-shoot
