Most of the varieties of Koi fish have been with us for about 200 years. Different Koi varieties are separated by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Major colors include red, black, white, yellow, cream and blue. Possible colors are pretty much limitless, but breeders have identified certain categories they consider pleasing to the eye, and of course, the marketplace also dictates color popularity.

Breeders continue to develop new koi varieties. Developed in 1980s, Ghost koi has metallic looking scales. While Butterfly koi, also developed couple of decades ago, have long, flowing fins.

Among the well known varieties of Koi, Kohaku is probably the most popular. Japanese translation for kohaku is red and white, like her colors. On the other hand, Asagi is pale blue with an orange-red belly color. Ogon is usually gold or orange, sometimes it can be found to have cream color, but those are rare. Ogon means gold in Japanese. Popular Utsuri fish is black with white, red or yellow markings. Bekko koi can be white, yellow or red. It has black markings on its body. Ochiba is a light blue koi with yellow markings. Ochiba is often translated as fallen leaves.

Fancy Goldfish

Long, flowing fins, amazing color patterns and prominent features differentiate these fancy goldfish from the common "Comet Goldfish." They do not grow as large as koi, making them a very popular fish for aquariums, smaller ponds and water gardens.

All goldfish are members of the carp group and are generally quite hardy.
