      The image and video quality make it very hard to do an evaluation. Out of curiosity, is this a male? It's very slender with robust pecs. Females often look quite chubby at this time of year post harvest.

      A couple of things to take into consideration. As a 3yo, the coloring is quite advanced. Look for evenness in tone, no dark spots but a uniformity to the coloring. Is the Beni rising evenly from side to side?
      The other is that as a single color koi on the shoulder area, the scalation is very important. This is the area where the head meets the shoulder. It should be identical from side to side as side. I simply can't tell in the images provided if that is the case.

      The skin looks pretty good but again, the images make it challenging.

      I thought I would share some pics demonstrating the one of the things I was talking about.

      Good:

      It's not that uncommon on Asagi. It's the characteristic in the skin that also gives what we call Kado gin.

      Thanks for the input. I know photos aren’t very clear. Will have more when it comes to states.

      I love the deep blue, I hope it stays that way. The scales look a little messy behind the head but I could be wrong on that.
