Sanke (SAHN-kee): The Sanke koi fish, also known as the Taisho Sanke, is a fish known for its white base coloring with red and black patterning. In terms of this koi’s pattern, it could be described as a cross between a Shiro Bekko and a Kohaku. This breed was developed from Kohaku roughly 80 years ago.
Regardless of the variety of Sanke, the fish’s red coloring should be even and deep as well as well-balanced without viewing the black. The koi’s black markings should also be well-balanced when viewed separately. These markings should not extend below the lateral line or onto the head of the fish. These are common indicators of a high-quality Sanke koi fish. If you’re looking for a Sanke koi fish for sale that is healthy and safe for your pond, look no further than Koi Fish USA!
