    Tancho classification

    Post  anubisram on Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:51 pm

    All koi with a single Hi plate on the head and no other hi on the body are classified as Tancho (so named after the Japanese Crane)
    The word Tancho is often used when referring to a white koi with the Hi on the head - this would be correctly named as Tancho Kohaku.
    The Hi head plate should be large and round. However, heart, cross, square and blossom shapes are known. This Hi plate should not extend over the eyes, shoulder or lips. It should be a uniform and deep red. Because the focus is on the single Hi plate the colour of the body must be unblemished

    It certainly is, I had high hopes for this koi at one time, not sure now as it has had a lean spell and not grown much more.
