      Your name says it. This one looks like a shusui without much red. The zipper seems intact and I don't see any stray scales to detract. The bit of shine seen in the scale is why some contend that gin rin came through doitsu.

      No red, not even on the belly. It does have very noticeable Bling Bling along the Dorsal Fin that shines like Diamonds. I wish I could find a Koi that shined as bright all over. From what I understand, Gin Rin is a dominant gene so I'm not sure how a Doitsu to come out of one?

      I hope it stays this color, it's been this same color since it was 3" long.

      Just out of curiosity, does this fish have a weak tail tube? I have a really hard time distinguishing good tail tubes from bad ones :/

      Maybe it will stay as you like it. I once had one like this for several years. After it got big, it had a tendancy to show some orange in the spring, that would go away in other seasons. Years later it got to where it kept just a little orange on the underside. The blue and the white held true though. Your mileage may vary.

      That sounds like a beautiful fish!

      I do hope it stays like this but I'm not holding my breath. This is one of the reasons a Japanese bred Koi with lines that are predictable are so appealing. Baby steps
