That said, I don't know if a koi necessarily has to be what it came from. It may be more, "It is what it is."

      Is the roof of the mouth black?

      Sumi on the head does not mean showa. it never has. There are many examples of sanke with sumi on the head.

      Sanke. The sumi is poor quality Sanke sumi. Tejima, sumi on the head and the color inside the mouth have nothing to do with it. I wish these so called criteria would go away, as they confuse more than help. Sanke sumi looks like little chips of confetti put together. Showa sumi appears continuous, like a sheet.
