Koi growth is very dependent on several factors like how much you feed them, quality of food, water temperature, amount of stress they have etc. An estimate of a 20cm fish is around 10 months. Type of food given can also affect a koi’s color. I recommend “Sho Koi”. Remember, pink birds like flamingoes are pink due to their diet of crustaceans which have a lot of pink in them so certainly you can have a fish turn grey due to food.
