      Id please if possible thinking Bekko

      I got all these as tiny 1 inch fry from a lady selling them for $5 to help pay for a new liner for her pond. I got the guy circled mainly because I liked the step pattern. I thought it would turn to a bekko. Well I was a little shocked when almost all came out as long fins but this one I still like just not sure what he is. I want to say Bekko but he is not white more of a blue color and the dark spots have never changed just grew as he did. Anyone have any idea what it is other than a mutt?

      I suspect this is a Bekko.
      Tosai colors can change a lot as the skin thickens when they mature. The "blue" could be underlying Sumi or the body of the koi could have a grayish color. It's not going to be able to discern with the pic and I personally would wait until it is a larger and you can isolate it for individual pics. I would wait until next spring to do it.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      yeah I thought it would be these are a good bit larger than when i got it and it has grown since. I plan on rehoming most next spring but this one keeps telling me to keep it. It has been one of the faster growers. Its long finned and I used to be a die hard no long fin person. Now that I have the babies a few have grown on me.
