      New to the hobby, Please judge this Koi

      After some internet research, I believe this is a butterfly koi. I'm currently looking to sell it since one can see that he has outgrown my current set up. Can someone please provide more research on this koi and perhaps value it, it's currently six inches in length.

      Also, if possible does someone know of anyone who is currently looking to buy some koi, especially in Bergen County. I want to give koi the right home, this feels like a member of the family so I would like it to go to a responsible owner that will guarantee a good life to this fish.

      Thank you.

      I hate to break it to you but second hand Koi generally don't have much in value. This looks like something that Petco would sell for about $5-10 brand new so...
      In most cases the more expensive the purchase price, the more it will go down in value. Not many people can/will pay $10,000 for a pet fish sold by the dealer, let alone a private owner.

      It's nice you're looking to rehome the little guy(Longfin/Butterfly Yamabuki or Orange Ogon) though. I would just donate it to somebody who has a pond

      No hard feelings at all ��
      I understand that but it works out since I’m not trying to make a living off this fish.
      Thank you for your insight, I greatly appreciate it!
