      Most young fish have that skull cap. The skin should thicken over time and cover it

      All tiny fish have that dark triangle on the skull. I am more hopeful about the dark shadow around the left eye. My long shot wish is nose sumi.

      Move the yellow circle down a little. The triangle shadow is less interesting than the shiny point on the nose.

      It may be just that but you never know. There is no Motoguro, no Sumi on the checks and no Sumi on the nose.

      The shiny spot is very important...

      You meant Mature Champion. Rain theory says this swimming sushi looks too pretty to be a girl.

      I'm not quite sure what to make of this one. I love the beni but I'm a little concerned the back half does not have the front half's body strength. Regardless, this is probably a koi I would have tried out.

      Hi, M

      When looking from the side, this one has a very tall body. You might be spot on about the front being stronger than the rear. Took this one home from Gardena. It is one of those fish that I didn't have to get but curiosity made me do it.

      I get it, I have done much the same. It does look Momotaro. I hope you have the same success that I've had with the Momotaro Showa I've had. It looks to have a lot of the appearance of a couple I picked up. Looking forward to updates.

      What does this shiny spot indicate?
