    Can I have some help identifying this variety please?

    This is one of four fish I purchased as the first new inhabitants of my new (first) pond back in October. My wife chose it because it was pretty. Since then I have become a bit more interested in the names of the varieties and this is the only one in my pond that I am not sure about. It is a Doitsu fish with white skin and orange markings. I thought it is a Kohaku but from what I have read the markings would be red not orange?

    kikusui I would guess, but not sure. Have a look on Cuttlebrook koi farms for sale page, they have loads of kikusui which is what I would say is closest.
