      Yes, that is correct and pattern figures into it as well.

      Additionally, in each of those there are things to look for as well.
      For example, beni is not only the stability factor but is it thick, does it look elastic meaning it will hold with growth, is it uniform or does it appear uneven and lastly, is it in the right places, is it a pleasing color? On sumi, is it inky in nature, having more of a bluish color, does it look like it will emerge, will it be in the right places? For skin, is it lustrous, is it thick or thin? Is it a bright almost brittle thin white or is it a creamy lustrous white like a fine pearl? And so forth.
      Gotta love this hobby.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.

      Quality skin enhances the beauty of the colors, but does not “lock-in” the colors.

      Kado gin can be seen in many different varieties, but would not put a koi in the show classification of ginrin.

      There is an article in Nichirin last year on gin rin and it was reprinted in last years Nishikigoi Yearbook.

      Very good skin also will make non-metalic fish to look almost metalic like especially on larger fish.

      I like all of the examples posted on this thread. I wonder how Koigrl's Ki Asagi looks like now.

      I won't be able to see him for a few months, but he has looked like this since he was a tot. i'm hoping that the ki on his face recedes or coalesces into a pattern. one interesting thing about this koi is that he was the only asagi in the spawn he came from. the current ki shusui spawn - 7000 in the harvest, not one asagi. a kp friend wrote in to tell me that asagi and shusui are two types (now or again) and i didn't get any asagi in that last spawn because there were no asagi-scaled genes in their parents. i'm paraphrasing. but will bone up on this. i do have ki shusui with asagi markings as in yellow bellies, not bands of lateral color.

      What a beautiful koi, good for you! You must be doing something right- looks very healthy
