      Momotaro Kohaku

      Nisai Momotaro kohaku 22". Any potential future deterioration of beni due to the "sawtooth" kiwa? I'd love to have inputs from the koi gurus

      Pic on the left as tosai from July last year, right is now

      That type of kiwa is called Maruzome and I don't see any degradation from the first picture to the second I anything the kiwa is better defined that's all I got.
