Koi: Tancho

Koi

Tancho

Tancho is a hugely popular variation of Kohaku, in which the only red pattern appears as a single red dot on the head. The symmetry and placement of the Tancho mark are main factors in determining the quality of any particular koi. Tancho are highly regarded in the Japanese koi industry for their resemblance to the Grus japonensis, or Red-Crowned Crane. Most Koi pond owners in Japan will look for the most perfect Tancho for their pond. It is a symbol of royalty and strength.

In judging this Koi you will look for a solid white body and fins. The red patch on the head should not touch the eyes. The red should not be to large as to cover the head to much or bleed onto the body.

Although the Tancho mark can appear in many varieties of koi, the word “Tancho” by itself is almost always used to refer to Tancho Kohaku.
