"look at the winning competition fishes at club's level. You will notice several completely white fish getting top 5 positions. "

Yes, a top quality solid white ranchu, ones with well formed pure white wens, are regarded highly in Japanese shows. I have been informed that the pure white head is considered a more difficult challenge to obtain good development from than a red or yellow one.

In conclusion finding an unblemished white body in combination with a well developed wen is obviously going to be a rarity. So I can understand how they would be held in high rank and regard.

That’s a good point for us all to give feedback on. Personally I find red the easiest to develop, closely followed by butter yellow. I find white the least progressive wen. How do other members find wen colour influence on development?

The point I was trying to make about the fin colour infusion was that if a fin was coloured then it should be coloured intensely without any transparent areas in it. (Just like this fine example)
This observation was from local UK shows. I have seen plenty of Japanese multi coloured tails that seem well ranked so perhaps it’s just a UK fish judging trait! However Japanese pectorals and other fins seem to follow the UK mythology in that if they are coloured, then they should be intence and solid. Balance is obviously of importance.
