The short answer is most likely…but not necessarily all of them. Fry are often dark as its a natural way of not being seen (blending in with dark surroundings) at a vulnerable age/size. Koi with colors that are desired by breeders usually make up a small % of the fry and are selected for out of a batch so two parents that have extraordinary coloration aren’t necessarily producing a whole batch of babies with extraordinary colors. Other factors play a part too like nutrition. There are expensive foods out there that are formulated for those that want to really light their fish’s colors up. Good luck and make sure your goldfish (if you have them) don’t eat the fry!
