Koi: Matsuba



Matsuba are koi that combine a solid, metallic colored base with a black net pattern. Matsuba can display many different body colors, but the black pinecone pattern remains consistent among all Matsuba.  Gin Matsuba have a white base color, while Ki Matsuba have a yellow base color, and Aka Matsuba have a red base.




In judging this Koi

The pine cone pattern on the body of Matsuba is created by scales with dark centers, and edges that display the base or body color of that particular koi. The pattern should repeat uniformly as it spreads back toward the tail. Any missing scales or other blemishes that break up the pattern will be readily apparent. Ideally, Matsuba should have a clean, blemish-free head that is the same color and tone as the body of the koi. Any blemishes or flaws on the head will detract from the overall beauty of the koi.

The sole variation of Matsuba is Doitsu Matsuba.
