I couldn’t help myself, I saw these guys last week when I stopped in the pet store and had to go back for them.

They are in qt for now, but once they are cleared they will go to the pond.

That is some lovely finage. ;)

Are they out of QT?
Not yet. I put sterling out a week ago and then quickly decided they are just too small and the water was too murky at that time. It has since cleared up, but I have 5 green terrors that got loose in there. I can’t let my fancies go till I remove them.

I wanted some better pictures of my soragoi, so I netted it out. Fingers crossed it’s a female.
Right around 6”

It still needs a name. “Steel” pops in my head every time I see it.
The sparkling scales really make it show up nicely in the pond. It is easily my favorite koi right now.

I might be dating myself but I was thinking Remington Steele since you mentioned steel. do you have a video of your pond?
I know I’ve heard the name, but I’m drawing a blank on who it is. Lol

I’ve never posted videos before. I wish we could post them right on here instead of having to use YouTube.

I thought one of the koi looked like it had red in its fins, so everyone had a health check this morning.
I kinda like that the orange on the back is fading out.

This gal has been going all yellow just like I hoped she would

This one might find itself on the chopping block. I’m not sure why I picked it in the first place:/

I just love this guy so much

My husbands butterfly. I hate to tell him, but it looks like it has yellow starting on its nose:(

This one reminds me of a koi we lost. Only it isn’t deformed like she was.
My daughter picked it out.

My other daughter picked this one out. I’m liking it more and more as it grows. 35D5DDAD-8B4A-4F5F-975E-F07FDDA8B102.jpeg

And my son picked this one. Not a fan. It’s so muddy looking.

And my two fancies. I’m kinda disappointed they really haven’t put on any size. In fact they don’t seem to have grown much, if at all.
