  • Goshiki

    Goshiki


    Goshiki are said to have been crossbred between Asagi and Taisho Sanshoku -- not yet an established theory, however. They also form a very tasteful variety of Nishikigoi. Goshiki used to be included in the Kawarimono group. However, with recent production of fairly excellent Goshiki, they are now being treated as an independent variety at Nishikigoi shows.


    Their red markings are similar in patterns to Kohaku, but may not be taken as seriously. Some scales of Asagi may also appear in the red markings. The meshes appearing only on the white ground will, on the other hand, contrast strikingly with mesh less Hi.


    The Goshiki in this picture came fro Hiroi.

  • Kin Ki Utsuri

    Kin Ki Utsuri


    Kin Hi Utsuri are arguably the most successful Hikariutsuri. The red in good specimens is bright crimson, and while the sumi may be toned down, this does mean that any shimis - normally the plague of Hi Utsuri - are less obvious. The pectoral fins - candy-striped black and white with a golden overlay - can practically glow.


    Head sumi is not generally as well defined as in Shiro Utsuri, and dark nostrils on an otherwise all-read head are a common fault.

    Kumonryu


    The Kumonryu is a Doitsu (German) koi that has a jet black pattern that emerges like billowing black clouds against a white background.


    The black pattern is variable and unstable, disappearing with changes in the water temperature, reappearing sometimes as a completely different pattern.

    Shiro Utsuri

    The Shiro Utsuri, or "white" Utsuri, is a jet black fish with white markings.


    "Utsuri" means "reflections" in Japanese, and the pattern of a good Utsuri should be roughly inverted across the fish's back, almost like a checkerboard.

  • Hirishin Chagoi

    Chagoi

    A common misconception concerning finding a high quality chagoi is an easy task. Contrarily to belief, like all other varieties, chagoi also have their own stringent criteria. 


    First it must have a perfect body confirmation along with perfect scale alignment and defining fukurin. Scales must also have good articulation, color uniformity without any blemishes.


    In addition, chagoi also must have the potential to attain jumbo size, that is over 30 inches while meeting all the above criteria isn't that easily found.


    Finally, due to its simplicity in its pattern, chagoi must make up in size to convey an imposing regal impression.

  • Koromo

    Koromo

    Koromo, meaning "robed" in Japanese, describes a group of koi whose quiet elegance finds favor with connoisseurs, even though this breed of koi did not become available until the early 1950s. Koromo are crossbred fish; the first example resulted from a spawning between a male Kohaku and a female Narumi Asagi. The collective name "Koromo" covers several varieties, the best known being Ai Goromo.

  • Platinum

    Platinum


    Platinum Ogon, or Purachina, are white koi whose body shines with the same luster as the precious metal. These first appeared in 1963, probably from out crossing Kigoi with the grayish-silver Nezu (short for the Japanese word for rat, nezumi) Ogon - which remains a variety in its own right.


    At about the same time, the Cream Ogon became popular. This is a metallic koi, midway between a Purachina and a Yamabuki Ogon. Examples of this breed are very rare.
