    Where is Koi color base, Skin or Scale?

    Hi KB friends, My be this is a strange opening question,

    In all doitsu koi fishes color's are placed on skin but in normal scale fishes colors appear on visible area of scale. The question is where exactly come these colors from? And, if we remove scales of e,g Showa or Kohaku what we can find in its scaleless body?

    How color deploy over the scales?

    Thnx

    Colors can appear in both scales and skin.
