      Gorgeous I must say!

      I learned that much like Lukef said, light blue coloring in a baby Shusui koi is much to be desired. As well as the type or depth of the beni as well as its position.. More or less just that it has a rich red color more than position.. at least for the first culling. As for asagi, similar, but that the beni isn't as prominent and I notice in all the videos I've watched, very few of the asagi they picked actually had a large amount of beni above the lateral line- Though some did!

      Obviously the scaling on mine is a little darker than yours. He'll probably mature much earlier and may be a bit darker. He's mine and I love him
