  • 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 ?

      Mike, it beats me too. When i rub the surface of the area, it is smooth like the rest of the scales. Fyi, this fish is new (2 weeks) in my pond and suddendly this happen..

        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.

                      Aq, the surface of the skin is smooth no texture, bump, or scrap whatsoever. It is just the hi in the center of some scales faded. Fyi, this momo came in with certificate born april 2004.

                        I had the same thing happen to an Ogata showa purchased 5 months ago at about 6", now about 8". Everybody else is fine except this one? I think it swallowed some bleach! HOW DO YOU MAKE YOUR WATER SOFT!!!!!!!! Check out the difference.
