Gold butterfly koi, Eric. Those are quite elegant but I'll never be able to keep koi for awhile unless I get a bigger pond.:)

Favorite Koi

Showa has been my long time favorite along with Kumonryu. I am now infatuated with Shiro Utsuri.

These three fish all have something very similar in common. The SUMI (black) in the fish can change drastically over the course of three to five years as the koi reaches maturity. 8)

don't have a fav koi but I'm amazed at the effects of adding an ochiba chagoi to a group has.
for those that don't know, it is believed they release a hormone that calms the other koi down. weather this is true or not the effect does happen

My favorite among all varieties of kois is the kuhako and Showa!

Kuhako is due to its magnificient combination of red and white pattern.
It adds life to your koi pond, it blends well with the landscaping where
bonsai and plants are at its best:)
Check out the 5 step kuhako during the handfeeding:)



Showa is definitely one of my fav! especially when the sumi (black) color
come across its face... We call it the Mask!

How beautiful!

I am a big fan of the butterfly koi with the long, flowing fins.

Showa Koi. I like them because they always have interesting 'patterns' and colors. :D
