      Don´t like your limping with A5s in MP.
      I would fold, because that isn´t strong hand, if someone raises pf then you shouldn´t call, because you often might be dominated.
      Chasing flushdraw on paired board is dangeraous, because you could be drawing dead or for example 8 could give CO fullhouse.
      Since you called flop and hit your flush, then I would re-raise more on the turn to protect and get value with weaker hands 4$-5$.
      Your river bet is fine.
