This is a very interesting Koi. Ai Goromos have a Hi pattern like a kohaku, but
there is a dark shading on the Hi. A good Ai Goromo will have a red maruten spot on it's
head without any shading on it. Goromos are the exact opposite of the Goshiki, they have a shaded
Hi pattern on a white background while Goshikis have a Hi pattern on a shaded white background.
What makes an Ai Goromo?
Goromos were created by accident. How? A Japanese breeder was spawning Goshikis when one with
a white background and a net pattern on the Hi appeared. This Koi was carefully bred and now
we have the Goromo variety.
