Scale Color Question

My ranchu, Willy, has got some strange scale color going on. His scales have been looking progressively more pronounced and I couldn't figure out why until I read the post about fish scales growing in concentric rings. The outer most rings are a pale yellow and it goes more to orange/red as it gets closer to the skin. It's freaked me out a couple times in bad lighting because I thought his scales were sticking out. I tried to find some pics on the net that showed the same thing but didn't find any...is this just a temporary color phase that some goldies go through as they darken in color?

I think gchen's ranchu has the same coloration. Have a look at his siggy or his video again and u'll see :D

Some ranchu usually have that kind of coloration as far as i'm aware of.

Cool! I can't make the fishy cam work from the links but I saw the pic in the signature. Is there a name for that pattern, or is it just one of the many versions of "gold"?
