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
Kikusui's pattern is judged the same way as a Kohaku's
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
There are no breeder profiles available for Koi Breeders that produce Kikusuis at this time.
Partial water change outs can reduce the amount of anything dissolved in the water but not totally remove it. Although it is sometimes necessary, draining and refilling a pond should only be used as a last resort!
