      Can You Predict Futures for These Koi?

      Can you judge my new koi please?
      Am I lucky to have one or both female here, or none?

      Thank you,

      The Kohaku's got lovely shaped pectorals fins, an evenly balanced overall body pattern which finishes off

      evenly before the end of the nose and between the eyes.

      The 11/2 cm collar of snow white on the peduncle just balances the tail off nicely.

      I believe with the Taniguchi credentials, you have something to look forward to.

      Hi Kevin,
      I don't think ( and hope) so.
      I don't have a net to catch it to bow for pictures.
      This is the best I can take so far.

      Ben I am curious...can you add whether your water is soft or hard
      What do your parameters usually look like PH GH KH

      Noahsnana,

      I'm not sure, but I live in Virginia (US), and people say we have a hard water.
      I have a 1,000 indoor pond. I don't measure PH, GH, or KH.
      I just do 20% water change every week.
