    What is this koi?

    In this video is what looks like a leather carp. Do any UK koi dealers supply these as I'm looking to buy one. It's at 2.05 in the video

    The yellow/Lemmon coloured ones are easy to obtain and I have a huge one, been so impressed with it's growth. I want to get one of the grey coloured ones like the one at 2.05 in the video but can't find one. Ive seen them at garden centre's but want to buy Japanese

    What is this koi?


    Pic from 2:05 What is this koi? I Think its just a different shade, maybe the camera is at a different angle, or in a different light, it maybe isnt amazing quality?
    It actually looks like a doitsu chagoi to me be honest, the only difference between them varieties of koi is the colour as in cha goi, sora goi, karashi goi etc...
    if you notice once they put that one above in the vat theres a few that are the same/similar colour/shade mate.
    That greyish one above is the big one on the left hand side in this pic just after they pop it in the vat
    Its actually the same colour as most in there at that angle ay


    Look for a doitsu chagoi What is this koi?
