Goshiki (goh-SHEE-kee): The Goshiki koi fish is a genetic blend of both the Asagi and Sanke breeds. Remarkably, this koi fish is made up of a mix of five different colors including black, red, white, blue, and purple, making it one of the most colorful varieties of koi fish available. In fact, a direct translation of this koi’s name is “five colors”! While Goshiki koi fish come in several variations, the most common pattern is a white-based koi overlaid with a gray netting pattern, similar to the Asagi koi, with a red pattern resembling the Kohaku koi.
Compared to the Kohaku Hi, which is often glossy red or orange, the Goshiki Hi tends to be thicker, bolder, and more intensely colored. A Goshiki koi’s scales actually appear to glow in the right lighting. In this way, this remarkable rainbow fish offers the perfect opportunity to brighten up your pond. When looking for the perfect Goshiki koi, we highly recommend looking for a fish with a balanced pattern of colors as well as even reticulation to the scales.
