    Not a bad Aka Matsuba, Koiloco, you should have no problem keeping this bad boy clean if your still using softwater in your pond. The reticulation is even and the beni is uniform from head to tail. Excellent body conformation too...

    I am glad you confirm my eyes. I am a sucker for aka matsuba, somehow
    I've been looking for a while, this is the first one I like.
    and yes, my water is still soft and Ph has been kind to me at a constant 7.3 - 7.5
    By the way, what is the difference between these 3 and the one I just posted. Somehow, these 3 look more metallic in a way.

    I think it is the glare in the bowl. All of the Aka Matsuba's that posted are pretty much equal, but I have to say until when can see all the fish bowled together then we can make a firm accessment which is better.....

    Cool

    I think you are correct.

    These aka are not completely submerged under water, so they look a lot
    shinier than the one I first posted.

    That shows the high quality of the shiroji and the condition of the fish.
