      Base on this picture there is no guarantee
      My advice is use clove oil to sedate the koi
      Then take a few clearly pictures of the vent and post it up
      Some sex experts will chime in instantly

      I wish I could do that but it’s not my koi yet. It’s a seller, he said he thinks it’s a male. But it’s hard for me to tell. It’s an 18 inch fish. I’m trying to breed with my 28 inch Yamabuki Ogon.

      Another female, if it turns out not to be a male.


      You cant be short of breeding stock


      No hips, it's a male.

      The pictures aren't even clear enough to see the p-fins and other details.

      Take the dealer's word. When a dealer says it is a male, 99% of the time, it is a male. When a dealer says dunno, it most likely is a male. When a dealer says female, you still have to check it yourself.

      Please observe Murphy´s law:

      When you wish a male, it will be a female! Unless you check it.
