Koi: Kikokuryu



Kikokuryu are scaleless (doitsu) koi with a white base combined with areas of black inside the single row of scales, along the back outside of the row, and on the head around the eyes and nose. Kikokuryu are commonly thought to be metallic versions of Kumonryu. This is a Koi that stands out among others. It is often referred to as a skeleton Koi.

Points to consider in judging this Koi are pure white body and fins. Black outline of each scale on the top of the fishes body and eye. It would be consider a bad point to have any other color on the fish besides black and white.

Koi  get along with many other pond fish regardless of how large they get. There is no pecking order or worry that they will eat smaller fish.  Although it is important to note that Koi require more ready oxygen then goldfish do so in an electric outage the Koi will be harmed before the goldfish will. Many serious Koi enthusiast would never include other pond fish in their pond for that reason.
