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.
You should stop feeding your aquatic plants about a month before the first frost in your area. Even in areas that don't normally have frost, plant growth slows in the shorter, cooler days of the fall and winter months.
