She's fine, I think. Pretty common for white to lose its purity over time..

Phew. I was afraid she maybe had some kind of liver dysfunction since she doesn't appear to be eating as well as the others.

Oh. O.o That happens for people but does it apply to fish?

Maybe shes picky? Or shes finding something yummier in the pond?

Olympia, I have no idea if that applies to fish. Haha, maybe that's why I was so worried.

Fishy, I think she does scavenge algae but I've also seen when they eat. She always gets pushed away by the bigger koi. I wonder if I should put her in the 29 and fatten her up.

Hm....or you could attempt teaching her to hand feed? Or even all of them? If just her, you can toss food across the ways to get the other hungry koi to eat away from her while your feeding her.

Haha, just getting these buggers to even come to the surface for food was a challenge. Hand feeding is probably years away. I have the world's most antisocial koi.

You do! I always see such piggy and social kois. Always with this expression of "feed me! Feed me!"

Mine have this expression that says something rather obscene. And after I rescued them all from tiny tanks at pet stores, too. Ungrateful little carp. But I loves them anyway.

Saiyo's color change is probably genetic. Plus, goldfish are notorious for changing colors as they age. It's probably not diet related because I have different shades of white in my koi, and they are all on the same diet. But there are some diets that do change the shades of white slightly. A high krill (I think it's krill) diet will cause white to become slightly pinky.

If you are worried about her not getting enough food, you could toss food all across the pond as Fishy suggested. I read about that being used to help less aggressive koi feed in large ponds. I do that to an extent because my large chagoi is such a piggy.
