Hi Brendan

Lokks like carp pox.
There is nothing much you can do,leave it as water warms up it should go away or become less visible.

As for the platinum ,looks attractive nice and clean nice pond fish.
The kohaku i dont like lacking in hi on the rear although the white seems good.
SANKE ok as a pond fish.

Thanks
Anver

Platinum

Very good clean head
Nice bodyshape
Allignment of scales could be better
Overall very clean
Pectoral fins to small and not nicely rounded
Appears to have good lustre
Looks like old injury/Ulcer? that left a mark on the left side.

Kohaku

Very nice pecs, almost transparent and ideal shape
Hi not consistent
Flower pattern not sough after
Unbalanced
Poor body shape. Widest part to far back
Low quality Kohaku

Sanke/Showa

Spotty shotgun sumi is bad.
Hi in pecs bad
Body shape o'kay, probably male
Carp Pox on nose
Hi breaking up
Sumi on head / lip although Sanke
Unappealing sumi in pecs
Shiroji not bad.

I might be wrong, but a healed Ulcer/Injury often looks like that after a while.



Still a very nice Platinum/Purachina

Looks like carpox but im thinking more that its papiloma. Keep an eye on it that it does not get inflamed. I would PP dip the fish...just incase.
