Tancho Koi Fish

Tancho Koi have a single spot of color on top of their heads. It can be yellow, purple, black or even the most common Tancho spot color, red. The spot should be a circle shape. Irregular shapes are not wanted.

The Tancho Koi are similar to the Red-crowned Cranes that live in Japan. The red spot symbolizes trustworthiness, lastingness and fortuitous nature. They are popular in Japan because they bear a striking resemblance to their national flag.
