      It looks like the beni is breaking up. I think its beautiful now but the kiwa and the beni boarder on the flanks worry me. Maybe someone with experience with this bloodline could chime in.

      Any other advise, guys? I like the body and the tail tube. With my very limited knowledge I'd think it has potential to grow nicely.

      I'm indeed worried about the beni as inazuma pointed out...

      The picture is too fuzzy to tell conclusively skin and beni quality but I agree with the comment about beni being a concern. From the beni edge, It looks hard and peaked. The body looks good.

      Update

      An update half a year later...

      It is now 53ish cm (20"), did not really care to pose for a picture when I measured it. Might have something to do with my terrible, terrible measuring tub

      The good news is, beni did not shrink. As long as the beni holds, it is a nice kohaku with good overall quality.
