    As promised, Here is my SU at exactly 1 month later.

    Its current length is 22.5cm. So it has grown 2.5cm in the last month.

    Other than the growth (which is decent) I don't really see much change, but at this age things can happen in a hurry OR very slowly so it isn't a concern. I still don't have any concerns about the yellow head at this age. Henry C posted up a great example of one similar to this a couple of years ago. When it outgrew its yellowish, smudged youth it became incredible. Time is still your friend

    Ok im 2 days behind my usual update on this shiro utsuri. Its current length is 29cm. Thats a 6.5cm growth from last month and a total growth of 10cm since i got it two months ago.

    The sumi has come out a bit more but its white is a bit yacky....this lttle koi now needs the winter to sort its pigmentation out. The head is more creamy than yelow but again the photos are to dark. I seem to be loosing my touch with the photos as the photos are coming out to dark...not sure why yet. This koi is now getting to big for the small blue bowl so i will need to photograph it in the big blue from next month on which will affect the blue of the photos.

    There are also some visible veins from stress showing in the photo.

    lol, thanks luke. suttle very suttle....No wonder i did so bad in math at school.

    Im going to retake the picture tomorrow. Dicovered that my cameras exposure compensation was set on -2.3 so it did not expose properly and it pushed the contrast up far to hight. This koi looks horrible in the photo but i was pushing myself to release one today.
