Thank you all! They are doing great so far. The larger one has been a dad before, he is at least 3 years old and came from an Angelfish breeder.

Good luck with them, they are beautiful! The only thing I wanted to point out is the smaller one, (your female?) is not a koi, due to the striations on her dorsal. She is a very beautiful gold marble. Pls keep us updated if you breed them. I would love to see the offspring these produce. In case you haven't seen it before, here is a calculator to help you estimate the fry you should get from any given pair and explain genetics in detail.

I keep the link handy in my search for further reference.

This is what I would guess your pair to be, just based on appearance and assuming there are no other hidden genes present. You should get all ghost (s/+ or one dose of stripeless) offspring from this pair;

25% gold ghosts, 50% gold marble ghosts, 25% dark gold marble ghosts.

The fun will really begin if you breed the offspring to eachother, and it is possible that your female is already a gold marble ghost, you will only find out when you get offspring. Good luck!!!
