      Might have stretched the fish too fast from august to november, as the beni is not typically strong enough to start with

      Hi kev. The date is based on day/month/year format.
      Hence it is growth from august to early november

      I don't really see much of a problem with the beni. It simply got lighter from stretching but appears to be elastic enough to handle the fast growth. The important thing to not with fast growth is whether the beni shows "hoshi" which is darker color in the center of the scale than the surrounding edges. That is somewhat of an indicator that the beni is of decent to good quality and will hold up well with good growth. The sumi quality appears to have stayed rather stable which with this much growth is rather surprising. Maybe it's because there is beni underneath it throughout most of the body. Worth keeping and growing for at least another year to learn from.

      Thank you for the analysis and your opinion on this showa Mike.
      I shall be keeping this one for another year and at a point will slow down its growth to allow better beni development.

      It is in the list of a local keeping contest after all and it is interesting for me to stay until the finish line ahead.
