    Question White little dot/dots on 1st red band head area??

    My first post! I finally have a question that I can't seem to find answered when doing my searches, so here it goes.

    One of my juvie CRS has developed a white dot in the 1st red band head area. It's a left-side dot and it's missing the right side. Now I have seen these on hinomarus and such, but I was wondering what, if anything, does these little white dots mean?? Is it a favorable mark to have? This particular CRS has a decent tiger tooth, so I'm hoping as it breeds, that things only get better.

    Thanks for the help!

    Any white dots/bands/marking is favourable. Once you have marking that others do not have, that means it is rare and rare patterns contribute to high grade.

    It's a birthmark.

    Xema: Nice pic! I have never seen one of those white dots on a lower grade CRS. I think it looks better on her!

    Retardo: LOL It's a white face mole. Cindy Crawford (supermodel w/distinct mole on her face) would be jealous! hahaha

    i am a newbie in breeding CRS. My CRS is less than 3 days in their CRS tank.

    Xema, you always have great pics...thanks !

    I have been looking and hoping to see "white dots" on my grade A CRS. Found nothing.

    Yet, they are appearing in lower grade CRS which Xema are showing in the pics

    This is a Great forum....Thanks to all who share your experience

    I am enjoying myself....this is fun !

    I got some pics finally of my CRS with the dots. Special too because it has both dots, when at first I only saw one. Not the greatest of pics, as I need a macro lens, but you get the idea. I was lucky today to see another CRS with even better white dots, but I wasn't able to get a pic. YET! LOL I'll keep trying.



    Here is the left-side dot that can be seen easily enough:


    Then here is where you can see both! Too bad the right-side is smaller. LOL
