Koi Varieties


Kikusui (kee coo' swee) are a scale-less version of a Hariwake.  Look for one with a nice Kohaku pattern that has nice sharp edges and very white skin.  A Kikusui's pattern is judged the same way as a Kohaku's is.

Doitsu Platinum Koi with a Hi pattern, means "a Chrysanthemum in water", is the same as a Doitsu Hariwake with red markings or a metallic Doitsu Kohaku

Koi & Pond Tip of the Day
March 31st, 2015
Filters that have not had water circulating through them for the winter should be cleaned well before turning the pump back on this spring. Cleaning will remove toxins that can develop from waste breaking down in the filter in the absence of oxygen. Once your filter is up and running, seed it with beneficial bacteria.
