      Sakazume kujaku growth check

      Here is my kujaku from sakazume farm

      How I wished the matsuba turn out to be better. Growth from march to november is reasonably strong so far as the fish has a good appetite.
      Pardon me for the yellow-ish lighting for photography

      Why are you apologizing for the reticulation. This is a very young fish and the netting is coming, just not as fast as you want it to. I would be very happy with the development of this Kujaku over an 8 month period. It's a stunning fish and the Hikari sheen is exceptional. Patience is very important in this hobby. You want to have slow development of most everything as that allows the fish's color to stay good for many years.

      Thank you for your advice on patience. I also kind of like this fish, as the growth rate is satisfying while the quality does catch up every time.
      Another trait I found good is typically kujaku of this size starts to develop dropped belly, and mine seems to be quite free from such problem so far.

      Possibly because it's a male?!?

      That would be likely Mike.
      Unfortunately Im no expert in sexing koi before it reaches a point of maturity.

      The big ones are much easier to spot (especially females laden with eggs), while I would make mistakes sexing a younger one.
