Currently a beautiful OYA fish of 6 in (15.25 cm) long. The body isn't changing much throughout the years. Elongated shape and overall outline is what I was trying to feature in this ranchu. The tail has no visible change as well, and maintained is coloration. The head, on the other hand, is changing. Its definitely widened but still slightly underdeveloped. The body color pattern somewhat changed. Body has lost a few "Azuki Bean" scales on either side. The head color pattern changed as well, from Ichimonji-aka or Red Straight Line to Kuchibeni or Lipstick, red outlined mouth.
