      Yeah I think she looks pretty good. Mar was concerned with the beni in the back, but I mentioned she came with it "flowery" and wanted her to see her first photos before making a true judgment call. I think its gotten thicker - def not weak. I can show you wear

      I do like the skin on this fish a lot and while I still have some reservations on the beni stability (just my own past experience) I would love to be wrong.
      I like having a nice flowery pattern with some tsubo sumi (sumi in the shiroji) and great skin. Those sanke really appeal to me.
      Ask Russ, I almost just bought a tosai that fits very much this same dynamic.
      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.

      its certainly not losing any beni so far . my concern if it will get enough sumi to be a good sanke . I certainly hope so .

      Hard to see in the photos but there were some definate spots of sumi coming up. I doubt it will be a lot but if what we saw comes up it could be evenly distributed.

      Not bad for my low grade quality pond. Def a keeper unless the back end goes to hell.

      I had to look it up!

      Seware (se h' wah reh) Diving the back. A Hi pattern that has most of the Hi on the side with wide Shiroji on the back. A Hi pattern that looks as if it were dividing the Koi's back.

      Thanks Junichi. I didnt know there was a term for that pattern.

      Seware pattern is considered as most evolved, refined type pattern in Gosanke. the beni is often a sort of fragile because it is evolved compared to heavy patterned gosanke or Akamuji, but we won't be able to find it many.....the sanke is a rare one indeed.

      As we know, the Hi/beni patterns on Asagi, as the origin of Nishikigoi and one of the most primitive variety, are beni on cheek, eyelids, nose, belly, moto-aka (red in pec fin & tail fin), se-aka (red in dorsal fin). these are all primitive proof, then Seware is the opposite.....(Thats what they say...)

      Well then, as long as the hi/beni doesnt receed - This one is a keeper on pattern alone.

      Nice to have you share some knowledge on my thread.
