      Im not an expert but the first koi is a showa that wanted to be a shiro utsuri but the beni blotches provented that. The sumi seems to spray away from the main pattern. It neefs to be a little tighter. The stray sumi dots are a problem in making it a quality pattern.. The 2nd koi is a nicer pattern to me. That sanke still has some stray sumi dots on the head where the beni is ( which is ok if it were more of a block of sumi than stray dots) but its a nice fish. I like kuaku better when they have a step pattern. Thats just my preference. Other than that, its a nice fish. The asagi looks like a nice pattern and body, its probably a male as it looks long and thin. You just need to widen him up a little bit.
