Kikusui are a scaless version of a Hariwake. Look for one with a nice Kohaku pattern that has nice sharp edges and very white skin. A Kikusui's pattern is judged the same way as a Kohaku's is.
How do you get a Kikusui?
Kikusuis are bred by combining a Kohaku with a Platinumo Ogon. When you breed these two Koi, you end up with a Hariwake. You then take the Hariwake and breed it with a mirror carp or scaless carp, then you'll end up with a Kikusui.
