Kohaku, a member of the Gosanke family, are koi with a solid white (shiro) body, and red (hi) patterns over top of the white. Kohaku are believed to be one of the first koi variety ever developed. Red fish first began to appear in Japan between 1804 and 1829, when a black carp with red cheeks was found. The white offspring of this black carp were bred with a Higoi (solid red fish), and the resulting offspring had red stomachs. Around 1829, a koi with red gill plates had been produced, and many more Kohaku-like varieties appeared over the next few decades.
