    Could you help a novice?

    Hi all, can someone confirm or correct me? Based on these photos (I apologise for the quality), I think I've a ghost, a doitsu (large yellow one), ogon, bekko, a shiro utsuri, albino grass carp, and asagi shusui

    Hi Pod
    My opinion for what it worth
    Picture number 2
    The bottom koi is a gin Matsuba
    The second 1 up a Ki Shusui I have been after I of them for years
    The 1 to the left of Ki Shusui could be a Bekko as I cannot see all of the koi
    The next 1 up the black and white koi shiro Utsuri
    With all of the other koi I need better photos or see them in the flesh

    An old post revived here in my opinion that fish is not a ki shusui. Its definatly a metallic based koi, you can tell a mile off with the ogon/ghosty style head (there is a distinct difference in the look and shape between a metalic and non metalic koi's head) can also see the scales along the back are a silvery metalic.
    A ki shusui is a non metallic koi and the scales along the back would be a deep dark blue.
