Hi Wellsy,

If you mean the biggest koi in the photo it looks like it could be a Mizuho Ogon to me.

thats a very Vague desciption as here's a few others also classed as "Mizuho ogon" sounds good dont it...

ogon.... single coloured koi!
mizuho.... erm doitsu?

so you have a one coloured koi with hardly any scales!

as you can see there are variants to the same name and like all koi different qualities too.

Hi Pondy

You may say that Mizuho Ogon is vague but it's not incorrect though is it from the examples that you have included in your post.:D

The only thing that may be lacking is a description of the colour. In the photo to me it looks yellow but the owner says it's orange.

no arguments from me!,
it's just a shame that with a koi like that the name makes it sound so special ;)

i think we have all had a koi like this at one point or another

as long as you like it Wellsy its the important thing

i have to agree with pondy on this many of my friends show koi but some of there favorite koi are plain in color its down to what you like
