Sanke

Sanke Koi Variety

"THE MOST DIFFICULT OF ALL KOI TO BREED"

The Sanke is the perfect marriage of red (Hi) and black (Sumi) markings on a ground of white.

It is said that only the wealthy breeders of Japan attempt to breed Sanke due to the difficulty in obtaining the right balance of markings. The black (Sumi) needs to be ink like and the red (Hi) needs to be of the highest standard.
