      My First Hi Utsuri!!

      Hello all,

      Went to check out my local koi dealer and came across a what I thought was beautiful 6 inch tosai gin rin Hi Utsuri. My only complaint would be that its front section has too much sumi but at the same time I thought it looks rather mean! Another one of my concerns was that it would develop "freckles" or the random black spots. I read on a thread that most tend to develop that way. Well, I guess we will see. Here goes my $80 gamble.

      I really like it. It seems very balanced and and shows a lot of potential. The head reminds me of one of mine, I wasn't sure how she was going to turn out but she totally grew into her head and is actually my best grower!

      There are a few spots that are a little iffy but I could be wrong, I'm still pretty new. I circled them for you. I'm sure someone with more experience will have a better idea.

      It's not a big deal unless you plan on showing or breeding. It's still a nice fish with good Bling Bling
