      Question Will this koi change or keep its look?

      Any chance this little guy will stay the same, just grow larger?
      Hoping it ends up looking similar to the 2nd pic. I like the grey scales w/black netting.

      Any chance you could provide pictures of the parent's if it was spawned in your pond? That will assist in answering your question.

      No, sorry. I bought it, and 5 others, from Blue Ribbon Koi on Friday.

      Went to their website and based on the other Shiros I saw I think it will get darker maybe yours it's still a little stressed from the recent change.

      Then, is there a type of koi that would keep that grey w/black netting & if so, what's it called?

      That picture from Pinterest is not of a kage shiro utsuri. They are just patches of developing sumi surfacing.
