This Koi is an Aka Matshuba!
What koi is this? AkaMatsuba
A Red Koi with black markings in the centre of the scales.The red head of the Aka Natsuba should have no black markings or specks. Although not as rare as the Ki or Shiro Matsuba, this Koi has become less common in recent years.

Ki Matshuba
This is a yellow based equivelent of the Aka Matsuba and is an extremely rare Koi.

Shiro Matsuba
A white Koi with black pine-cone patterning in the scales.Like the Ki Matsuba, it is a very rare variety.

These Koi are classified under Kawarimono

This is a Kin Masuba (Matsuba Ogon),
What koi is this? KinMatsubaOogon
Each scale of this metalic gold-yellow koi has a black centre, giving the body a pine-cone pattern.

Gin Matsuba.
This is the silver version of the Kin Matshuba.
What koi is this? GinMatsubaOogon

Their classification: Hikarimono ( hikari meaning metalic and mono meaning single colour)

So, the Koi in question is an Aka Matsuba.

I would say the yellow Matsuba on the photo is rather a Ki Matsuba (literally "yellow Matsuba")

an Aka Matsuba is a red Matsuba and a Kin Matsuba is a metallic "gold or orange" Matsuba (based on a Google), and then you also get an Orenji Matsuba... very often confusing. Don't really know why we stick with the Japanese terms. Why not just a Red, Gold, Orange, White, Silver or Yellow Matsuba?
