      SFF kohaku tend to have the cleanest sashi and kiwa even on young tosai. I think it is all about bloodline and culling. I would not call beni "finished" just because beni edge looks clean. Beni quality, thickness and evenness are better indicators.

      So, can you answer his question about the "light" beni on the right side? What do you think it will do - stay or go? It's ruining the look of the fish right now and Inazuma, a "little tank" is not really a good thing. Overall, I like the fish for what it is but I don't think, at 5 yrs old, it's destined to get much larger. 24" is decent in a pond of only 1300 gal including filtration.

      No one can truly predict what that pink scale will do. If I were wagering in Vegas, I would bet on it turning white, one day.

      My "little" pond is very close in size by volume. I have a 27" Momotaro sanke that I grew from 8". 27" was as measured last spring. The fish is visually bigger now.

      Anyone can share or though about the lighter scales in the mid right area?
      That lighter beni scale is a part of uneven sashi. Hopefully,it will clean up when she is finished.

      she is bulkier at 25"
      the scale also improving but if it turned white would be ideal haha
      she probably stretch slowly from now in the crowded pond
