Nice development Cliff. Hope that the steps will break clean (between second and third) Nice big fish pattern and will turn out to be a very nice Kohaku. Still a bit slim and shouts Male.

Still a lot of positive development to come.

I like it, is going to be a nice fish if everything tightens up a bit.

Cliff,

I am sorry to say, but it does not appeal to me at all

The Hi on the head is bleeding into the right eye and the shashi and kiwa is not good at all, the body shape is to thin and the overall appearance of the Hi seems a bit on the “ thin” side, maybe due to Shiroji that is a bit yellowish. The pattern right-hand side of the body is too heavy as well. No odome!
If the head pattern was only on the head, and not bleeding onto the body it would look way better.

At a price of R 500 not bad buy!

Updated pic from last baby show in September 2011....roughly around 37cm now.....not the fastest grower

I think it's still a lovely fish......I'm not crazy about the bleeding into the eye, however feel when the plates seperate as it grows it will get better.

Hi is very strong and I dont find it week at all, actually feel it is getting alot deeper

Hi Cliff, excellent skin quality, looks like a small fish looking at the skin. The white is going to be stunning. Pleasing pattern, a bit unbalanced but no demerit. The Hi is of very high quality, the kiwa very sharp. The Shashi a bit of a concern. They say it should not extend beyond two scales and it looks like you extend to far. If it extends with more than two scales, it might take years to finish.

The slow development indicates that is a female and the good boby confirms this.

Fairly thick tail tube and good adome.

This is a long term fish. Going to be stunning in a few years in my opion.
