Koi: Goshiki



Goshiki are koi with a solid white base with black and blue edging, and red and black patterns overlaying the white, black and blue colors of the base. Goshiki in Japanese translates as “five colors”. The five colors are black, gray, blue, white, and red.

To many including myself this is a favorite in many ponds. It is a very interesting colored Koi.  Goshiki are black based non-metallic koi with a red dorsal pattern and usually having a matsuba (mesh) like scale ornamentation on white, gray or black skin. While there is some debate over the origin of Goshiki most references indicate that the first Goshiki were called “Asagi Goshiki”and were first produced in 1918 or 1919 by crossing a asagi with an sanke. Later breeding with Kohakus gave it a richer white background .

Variations of Goshiki include Gin Rin Goshiki and Tancho Goshiki
