      Do you think arround $150 is fair price for this fish and do you think it will become good? Thank you Sir.
      This is what i picked.

      My bad, its Matsue By the way not Momotaro.

      Call me Mitch please
      Id pay avg $100 but where I live there is more choices and competition
      I really like momotaro their koi most eat like pigs
      Ill definitely asking for a bargain since youre getting multiple koi
      This is my tosai picked earlier in the year
      https://youtu.be/8xALHUBovOM
      Anyway the maruten kohaku is a matsue from my local grow out
      All 3 koi are same price

      How good can they become ?
      It is hard to tell
      You have to bulk them up and still able to maintain the color
      The quality is just good enough to start your journey with koi
      Ps...
      Know the limit of your filtration

      Those look like some great choices and should be fun to watch grow. Nice patterns for a big fish to grow into

      And welcome and thanks for joining Koiphen!

      Thanks Mitch, the Guy who sold me this asked for $200 but after few talk, i end up paying $150 for each koi. Most of the dealer charge premium price here where i live. I just hope three that i bought turn up good.
      Some nice tosai you have there. Love that kohaku.

      I think the Kohaku at 4 o’clock is probably male and has the weakest Beni. The other 2 will end up being better.

      The Showa might end up being a Shiro Utsuri in the long run. You’re going to need to feed that one a lot!

      Post updates in a few moths and share how they develop. Good luck!

      You will have to keep your water parameters and water pristine
      Im afraid both koi are showing the sign of Beni fading the first koi is at much faster pace
      Hopefully the second one can maintain its maruten
      It could be addicting but...
      Id recommend slow down on adding buying koi before knowing or realize the value/quality of them
      Learn on how to recognize beni quality, soft vs hard, elastic and stability
