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
October 22nd, 2016
Summer is the time when oxygen deficiencies are most likely to occur. Obviously fish need oxygen, and insufficient aeration may result in dead fish. In very hot weather fish are using more oxygen and the water is holding less. If you have a heavy fish population or low circulation in your pond, consider supplementing with extra aeration. This can be in the form of a waterfall, fountain, or simply an air pump.
