      Selecting Mizuho Ogon

      I'm considering purchasing my first Mizuho Ogon this weekend, and I was hoping to receive some insight on selecting jumbo tosai & nisai.
      The local dealer has a few with different shades of metallic orange. And when I search for this variety on the web, it comes in several shades of orange, red, and yellow.

      My understanding is that this is a doitsu version of the Kin Matsuba, so it should be a metallic orange and not red(Aka Matsuba) or a metallic yellow(Kin Ki Matsuba).

      Now when choosing from a light, regular, and dark orange..which should be selected?
      Does the Yamabuki Ogon rule apply to the Mizuho's and that I should choose the lightest of the batch?

      The collage is from photos I picked up from the web...the only photos I have of the actual fish, are from the unloading from Japan. I like the dark & bright individual on the far right that's glowing, but could this become splotched with redness later on?

      Thanks in advance!
