Kikokuryu – Your Hump Day “Koi Fix” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

The Kikokuryu Koi is a scaleless koi (doitsu), with a white base color with black markings along the single row of scales down it’s back. The black markings are also on the head, prominently around the eyes and nose of the Koi.

The Kikokuryu is a metallic black and white Koi developed from crossing Kumonryu and Doitsu platinum Ogon.

Commonly called ‘Kiko’s’, the colors of a young Kikokuryu can range from black and white with blue and silver mixed in too. But the colors tend to darken with age and even in the cooler water in Fall & Winter. This changing, maturing color is a trait they got from their Kumonryu cousins.

A very interesting, beautiful Koi, the Kikokuryu is a favorite of mine as well as many others in the hobby.

Thanks to all! and,

~ Happy Pondering!

Hump Day Koi Fix | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I have had several customers at the Nursery stop in to buy Koi lately looking specifically for high quality Kohaku. Different varieties enjoy the popular spotlight from time to time, but beautiful Kohaku are always a popular choice.

The most well known variety of Koi is the Kohaku. This one pictured is a HIGH Dollar Show Quality Kohaku! Top quality Kohaku have a bright, blemish free solid white base, overlaid with a deep red pattern.

Kohaku – 琥珀 – Is the Japanese word for Amber. It’s also the most well know and most popular of the Gosanke – “The Big 3” of the Koi world… Kohaku, Sanke & Showa (the 3 most popular varieties).

Variations of Kohaku include the Doitsu Kohaku, Gin Rin Kohaku, Maruten Kohaku & of course the Tancho Kohaku.

This is a Doitsu Kohaku (scaleless). Beautiful! 

Happy Hump Day! and…

Enjoy your KOI!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Monday = Funday when you have pets like these to feed every morning 😊 This morning before the sun started to come up… They are so happy to see us and they LOVE to eat and then sweep the entire Pond. I hope this adds a little “Zen” to your morning.
