      Guess the breeder?

      New tosai Kohaku, what do you think of them? Excuse the water being green. I just changed my UV bulbs today.

      I'm willing to bet this is not a US domestic Koi. Definitely the pattern & beni quality of a Japanese import(I'd be so embarrassed if I was wrong lol)
      I'm not necessarily saying the beni is of high quality though. I think the second Koi with it's hard & finished beni will start to fail soon...

      These are from a Japanese breeder. I liked these two because of how white the skin was and the big heads. Hoping the skin stays white as it grows.
