    In 2 minds about the golden corn tbh . Probably be completely different to see a big 60+ cm in person tho .
    I know what you mean by a bit dark but if a can find a lighter chag colour with the sumi marking would be a good one like

    Just my personal opinion mate it's your pond at the end of the day,I like to see my koi well and love Gin Rin as they stand out that is probably why I am attracted to the Corn.

    There was another one which Rs has named after a beer cant remember it though.

    Got to say, the bigger golden corn look absolutely stunning to me and would really add another dimension to a pond but they are very expensive!

    Kirin.
    Named after a beer.
    And the beer is named after a giraffe!

    Not seeing any Kirin available this year, only fake ones. The real ones are bred by Wada.

    Think it would be a shame if they don't take off, I love them and with a 96cm mother they are all capable of being jumbo.

    I chose the lightest colour one I could find thinking it would darken up in hard water, but it actually got even lighter.

    Looking forward to getting more size out of her this year, hopefully over 60cm.
