    Lost Hi (Red) or else ?

    Hi, here is the pix of momotarou sanke (nisai) w/ some area of hi in question encircled. Is this sign of hi going down or else ?

    DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THE HI IS GOING DOWN. The fish might just be a little stressed out causing the under pigment to go funny.

    All I can tell you is that I had a momotaro sanke that lost 100% hi and became a nice bekko. And yours doesn't look
    like what happened to my fish.

    If the fish seems healthy and eating good. Just wait it out and monitor closely.

    Looks like what happens over the first 3-4 months when fish with good beni are moved to water that is too hard to maintain good beni. My guess is that the hi is going to turn a light persimmon colour.

    Paulino,

    Is this the Momo sanke that you got from Kiki of Samurai?

    How's the rest of the fish in the pond? Dick might be right but the pick isn't too clear to really see the area in question or the depth of it.
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
