      How old is the fish? Females will develop eggs for spawning, growing abdominally. As coolwon stated, it could also be a tumor, but hopefully just eggs.

      It could be genetics as well.

      Hi Rich,
      How early can a koi get eggs? I think my Ake Nisai are getting eggs but unsure. It's pretty round now.
      Thanks

      The head, the pecs, it looks like it's all cockeyed.

      The mouth, jaw and eyes all appear to be offset to the right.

      The pecs do not look equally shaped.

      The left pec appears to be a little further back from the end of the gill plate compared to the right.

      The dark pattern helps to exaggerate the front end.

      I think that some have developed eggs as early as late 2 year olds, but generally 3.

      The koi is deformed and possibly genetic issues. Might be tumor, genetics,bacterial,parasite. It could be many things that caused this look. And would only be a guessing game to figure out the real problem.
