Tategoi means Koi of the future.
Serious hobbyists want to source the very best Tategoi in any variety.
But of course the top Tategoi are a small percentage of breeder's production.
Koi at a Tategoi stage look average to the unexperienced eye.
The underlying colours and patterns are usually still rising.
The shape of the koi showing potential.
All this comes only from good bloodlines.
Great care and experienced managment with koi and pond keeping,
will give you the chance to turn Tategoi into very valuable champion koi.
