    It's not pure black, but it's black.

    I saw it today at the LFS. ~5"

    I don't know much about what is good or bad (yet) but is this a good find?

    I'm trying to collect ones that I like. I'm up to 19 koi now. I'm not sure when I'll stop once the 1500G is in, but I do want lots of solid yellow and gold colour ones too. After I'm satisfied with what I want, I want to keep some nice ones that expert koi keepers drool over. LOL! I haven't developed that pallet yet, but it will come.

    19 Koi is a lot of fish for a 1500 gal. pond. You might want to think wayyyyyy bigger if your plan is still growing.
