I was just looking at a few Japanese art pieces that I have hanging in my Tatami room and noticed that they have golden koi on them. One of my pieces even shows a golden kohaku koi. Makes me wonder if even possible with current cross-breeding.
    Are you thinking of mukashi ogon?

    Okay. I think I found them. Gold and Silver Koi. Nezu Ogon. Reading that it is a very old type of koi. Rarely found today. It says it's an "ancient" type.
    Looks like someone is breeding them in Japan.

    I would be interested in what a good one looks like. Pics I found online.

    My nezu won best size 6 at our show in October. The even scale pattern is critical.

    What classification do these fall under?

    Hikari Muji or Kawarimono?
