Re: Hard & Soft Beni

Color is only one of many indicators but not always a reliable one. Beni presentation, depth, evenness, pattern, and especially beni plate edge all need to be taken into account.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

These are some very high quality young koi. My impression that they are judged mainly on patterns when this young has been shattered. The bodies are exceptionally strong. Only in Japan can you see so many great fish under the same roof.

Re: Pink or not Pink

I don't think I'll know what pink beni is until I save my pennies and buy one already identified as pink. Of the three prior, I'm not seeing anything in the last two.

Re: Pink or not Pink

Here are photos of a pink beni sanke from PSKoi 2013 ikeage. From not so obvious to full blown pink beni. The tosai fish had unusual transparent copper color beni tone. I don't think digital photos can be trusted to represent color faithfully. Camera makers tune their gears to over exaggerate red an...

Re: Pink or not Pink

I don't know if this will help folks or not but there is a Pink Beni kid is this group.

To me, pink b...
