    Body conformation says female. Nice pectoral fins. What is distracting is the red patch engulfing the right eye. The hump and the width of the shoulder I like. Basically a 2 step Kohaku pattern. The Odome looks void due to no Beni present. Presence of a Beni patch in this section will finish the fish nicely. I can't really find further faults with the fish.

    Overall, this is a nice fish.

    thanks bro shukri.........target to make her reach minimum at 65cm next year 8-) :-D

    By far, I only feed her hi-growth pellets, is it OK if I don't feed her color food ?

    Yup, not necessarily to feed color if you do not want to....

    Yup, agreed with you brother Shukri. I never feed my koi with colour food simple because I have shiro in the pond.
    Don't ask me why!!!

    i am told by a breeder to feed colour occasionally to maintain the beni , esp if your beni is weak . The impact on shiros esp the males will only be temporary and will clear soon enough. The female shiros tend to take colour better and may not even show yellowing of shiroji.
