    I really like that one.

    I really like the Shiros where there are bands of Sumi on both sides.

    Think they will turn out to be nice fish. I have been looking on adams website but wanted something around 25cm at least but he doesn’t have any shirio utsuri at the moment
    Thanks

    If it is not possible to know the background of the OYAGOI (parents) or the tendencies of siblings, the only way to rule out the less likely ones.
    It is often said that the shape of the SUMI of the hand fins, entirely stained black or striped, is undesirable.
    Even if it is developing, if a jet-black area can be identified somewhere, it is possible that a SUMI of that quality will appear later.

    It may be judged as a possibility if it is visible between scales or if the base of the dorsal fin in particular is jet black.
