    this the only photo?
    seems its left side towards lateral lne has white outlining scales where it should be solid beni

    might be some also on its right side towards lateral line also.

    I like it a great deal. No doubt a beautiful koi. Good for a show today. My concern is the future. It looks very finished for a tosai.

    I kept waiting for someone to talk about the beni behind the sumi step mid dorsal. You can see it is different color than the surrounding red.

    It's the area that has submerged sumi that will be coming thru as it matures.

    I saw this happen on A toshio sakai fish, where the beni turned a hikui yellow orange before displaying a much needed sumi step the following year. It happened on one of his new marusome styled beni Koi and i was not sure what to think as i hadn't that much experience with it at the time.

    I really like the tejima on the pec, bold, just the way I like it....

    Koi is from sakai-Hiroshima, NO?
