Reader’s Choice – Asagi

One of the oldest varieties of koi.  Many of the varieties available today were formed from Asagi crossbreeding.  Asagi is truly a cornerstone of the koi hobby.

But what makes a great Asagi?  You have the blue reticulated pattern, and of course the orange or red hi markings.  But how much red is too much?  How much will the red expand as the koi ages?  Any serious koi hobbyist must do their best to answer this and many other questions.

So, at 8 inches and less than one year old, which would you choose?  Would you go with the strong, solid reds of Asagi A?  Or maybe the less developed hi of B or C? 

Leave a comment and let us know which you would take home!

    Hey, somebody splattered some paint on Fish A. Really pretty colors. However, I choose Fish B because it appears to have potential to be a real bruiser. The colors on it appear brilliant, too.

    B is common , i have white and yellow grey butterfly , i would choose between A and C , C has very unique Gold shiny scales but the pattern of A is catchy will look cool in pond with yellow head and white body so A
