    Please help identify this fish

    I have recently purchased a number of fish from another member but cannot identify the variety of the koi below. It has a metallic silver body with red overlay. It looks amazing. Any experts out there who can help? Sorry about the rubbish pictures.

    I would say this is a beni kikokuryu.

    Here is some info on them that I took from a blog.

    The Beni Kikokuryu (Ben-ee-----key-ko-koo-roo) (Beni Kiko for short) was developed from the Kikokuryu. This breed is always a Doitsu (scale less or partially scaled) and always a metallic Koi.

    A Beni Kiko is simply a Kikokuryu with an orange or red pattern on top of the standard colors of a Kikokuryu of black and white.

    Other similar variation is

    DOITSU YAMATONISHIKI or METALLIC KUMONRYU

    But Iím thinking beni Kikokuryu - Iím sure others will come along and give their opinions.
