    Hi , some times i feel like showa some times sanke !
    as far as i know its pattern is of showa the black didnt developed/emerged much yet in a year but there is grey and some black patches around which may become black base later on ?
    if its showa then how long does the black takes to develope , will it be of good quality ? Screen Shot 02-15-17 at 07.29 AM.JPG Screen Shot 02-15-17 at 07.25 AM.JPG Screen Shot 02-15-17 at 07.26 AM.JPG Screen Shot 02-15-17 at 07.29 AM 001.JPG Screen Shot 02-15-17 at 07.33 AM.JPG

    Showa black extends below the lateral line sanke stays above. I think there also must be black on the head but can't remember.

    No sumi on the head, the sumi on the pectoral fins is striped rather than solid patches near the body, very little sumi on the back half of the fish or near the tail, no black below lateral line.

    I'd say it's a sanke--at least for now.
