Aka Matsuba are a red Koi with a black net pattern. When buying a Aka Matsuba, make sure that the net pattern is equal all over the Koi. Watch out for any discolored scales or old scars. The Hi should be very deep too.
Matsubas have been around almost as long as the Asagis. They are closly related, sharing the same net pattern.
