I have been "collecting" koi for some time now, but only recently started taking pictures of them BEFORE I put them into the
pond.  Once they're in there, I don't take them out unless I decide I don't want to keep that particular koi and then I'll list it for
sale.  I don't take them out for a photo shoot under any other circumstance!  Often, I'll keep several small koi of the same
variety to see how they turn out, or I'll keep a couple of the same variety because I happen to really like that particular variety.  
There are some koi that I would buy (if the price was right and I had the money) no matter how many of that variety I already
had in my pond.

Beni Kumonryu
These are exceptionally difficult
fish to find, and if you find one
you like, GET IT!  Since they are
Doitsu, or scaleless, they tend
to change their color patterns
dramatically over time, so
they're always interesting.
This koi was purchased from
A's Aquarium.
Budo Goromo
Yet another interesting koi
variety, as ideally the red and
black patterns on the fish
completely overlap, with no
black or red patches anywhere
else on the fish.
Butterfly Gin Rin Orenji Ogon
This is a true "orange" colored
fish.  All other koi are
considered red, however, the
Orenji is the exception.  I
particularly like the diamond
scales, or Gin Rin on this one,
as well as it's long, uniform fins.
Butterfly Hi Utsuri
You can certainly tell the
difference between the
previous Orenji and this red an
black fish.  Not a very good
picture of this beauty, but the
colors are clean and bold, and
the fins are even and identically
colored.
Gin Rin Ai Goromo
I'm not sure if you can tell from
this picture just how small this
koi was when I added it to my
pond, but I kind of felt sorry for
it as it has one stumpy pectoral
fin.  I don't know how the fish
will turn out, but I thought it
was pretty enough to try to
grow out a little in my pond.

Gin Rin Asagi
I can't even tell you how long
I've wanted one of these koi,
but at the 2009 MPKS Koi &
Goldfish Show, Mike White had
TWO of them!  What a find!  
They look like they're made of
pure silver.

You can't have just one!

Showa
This is one of two new style
Showa I purchased from Koi
Acres at the Upper Midwest Koi
Show.  You can see the black is
just starting to come out on it's
head.

This is the other new style
Showa I purchased from Koi
Acres at the Upper Midwest Koi
Show.  Those blue patches are
the black coming through the
skin.

This is one of two old style
Showa I purchased at the
Midwest Koi & Goldfish Show.  
You can tell right away the
difference in the amount of
black coming out on this fish.
This koi was purchased from NY
Koi
Naso or Midori?
Hoping it turns out green.

This koi was purchased from
Koi Supply of Japan
Kumonryu
I have wanted one of these
for SOOOOOO long!  It's
already changing it's pattern,
true to the variety.
