Koi Varieties

Kikusui

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

These harmless creatures are Blood Worms and they can be beneficial to the pond by consuming some of the detritus (sludge) in your filter. Blood Worms are the larvae stage of chironomid midges – a very small fly that resembles a mosquito but does not bite.
