I like your little ochiba ( second to the last picture.)
sweet babies, but be careful as they grow, 1500g is not much room for adult koi so keep an eye on your water quality.

Those are some cool shots and nice looking koi you have there. I would wait until they get some size on them and then pick out your favorites and sell the rest as that is a lot of koi for that size pond. And if you want I will take that Gin Rin Shiro Utsuri (black and white one) off your hands.

What makes you think that is a ochiba? To me it looks like a Gin Rin Goshiki but sometimes it's hard to tell until they become full grown. I used to have what I thought was a Hajiro(black koi with white fins) and it completely changed over the course of 3 years and now I believe it may be a Gin Rin Matsukawabake as it constantly changed the patterns throughout the seasons. There is so many different types now that it's hard to tell them apart, but Izabella does have some nice looking koi that I think will end up looking nice when they get older.

Heheh no no no no taking any kois off my hands, I love them on a koi forum they said some my kois are ugly low grade, but in reality im not here to b japanese breeder, i adopted them for best or worst, and u are absolutly right, waiting until full grown cuz some fish i got have 100% changed color!

Here's an examply, the big white fish with the big red patch on the head here

is this one now --- farrrrrrr the last one on top left the all white, no more red anywhere

Beautiful waterfall, I love the "wild" look of it. And I really like how nice and bright the colors are on all your fish! Wish I could have a pond

it is clearer in another picture of it, it has a grey base color, a nice reticulated netting to the scales. goishiki are not reticulated. I don't see any GinRin(sparkly scales)

Izabella, it was not nice for that forum to tell you your koi were ugly! They are pond grade koi but you have some nice ones there that are going to look nice grown up. and the Mutt koi(un-name able ones) can be lovely in their own right
here is my Ochiba, they are my favorite. Her name is Rootbeer. She is a GinRin Ochiba Shigure. the name describes the pattern and colors "Autumn leaves floating on the water"
this picture is about 2 years old, Rootbeer is now about 26 inches
