Goshiki's changes colour depending on the temperature of the water.

Goshiki means five colours.

I don't like the normal Wagoi version when small, but after two to three years, they develop into stunning fish.

The Doitsu version is quite rare, and I seldom see one in South Africa.

It is pronounced Gosh-ki and not Gosh-Shi-Ki

Goshiki's are a cross between Kohaku and Asagi, where the Asagi is dominant (male)

You get two types of Goshiki apart from the Sanke Goshiki and Showa Goshiki.

1 Kuro Goshiki (Old style and becomes very black) The last Goshiki posted above is a Kuro Goshiki. The contrast between the almost black and the red is often very striking. They develop with time as the asagi pattern develops.

2 Modern or new style Goshiki. Often very much the same as Goromo. They are much lighter and are often overlooked as a lessor quality Kohaku, as the grey underneath the white gives the impression of poor shiroji.

Sometimes, they initially look exactly like a Kohaku, and the Asagi pattern takes time to develop.

The five colours of Goshiki are black, red, white, blue and grey or silver.

When choosing a small Goshiki, you must follow the Kohaku rules, look for a good Kohaku pattern.

The most beautiful one that I have seen is the one that won the Special variety prize at the Cape Town 2008 show:

I can think of no other variety of nishikigoi, where the offspring show such a wide variation in their appearance.
Goshiki Gosiki-SakaiH-Fm45cm

Thatís why I love this variety!

SHIRO or KINDAI GOSHIKI:
Shiro (white) Goshiki are very elegant Koi with a red patterning placed on white skin, with more or less Koromo-like markings on their white skin or red patterning or both.
KURO GOSHIKI:
The majority of Kuro Godhiki are showing more or less dominant black, blackish blue or grey basic color on white skin.However, this is where it becomes a bit confusing, as this dark base color has many different ways of expressing itself.
There are Kuro Goshiki showing a dark regular mesh pattern on white skin, or on white and the red skin. On the other hand, there are olso examples of this variety showing nomesh pattern at all, giving the expression of being painted with a air brush.
All in all. There are six different kinds of Goshiki; four types of Kuro Goshiki and two types of Shiro or Kindai Goshiki ( ignore the special ones) where for instance no more white skin is seen.
GOSHIKI SHUSUI:
a Doitsu non-metallic blue Goshiki.
GOSHIKI SANKE:
A Sanke pattern with Koromo scale reticulation overlaying the hi or white on the Goshiki or both colors.
GOSHIKI SHOWA:
As the Goshiki Sanke but with a Showa pattern.
Goshiki GoshikiShowa
A Goshiki Showa.

TANCHO GOSHIKI:
A Koi with blue or black reticulated skin, having a single hi (red) marking on the head.
Also found in KinGinRin
KIN-GIN-RIN: ( As posted above by Admin)
Rows of shiny scales appearing on the back and sides of the Koi.

What about this one?
A METALLIC GINRIN GOSHIKI!

Het hierdie Goshiki raakgesien in een van my plaasdamme. Dink hy gaan nogal interresant uitdraai. Amazing hoe hulle verander van seisoen tot seisoen.

Goshiki's are apart from Go-Sanke, my favorite variety.

Interesting that almost 50% of the Sakura prize winners at last week's All Japan Koi Show were Goshiki's.

Sakura prizes are awarded to the best non-Gosanke in each size classification.

Hi

Those Goshiki's posted are stunning, but its very hard to find a nice one locally and if you do they are rather pricey.

When i start bettering my collection this year Im going to have to put one on the list.

Cheers
Lee
