Tancho Kohaku, the most common type of Tancho. This is is a very popular variation of the Kohaku, with the Hi (red) pattern only appearing on the head. The Hi should be circular and should be centered of the Koi's head. There should be no other Hi on the body at all.
The Tancho Mystique:
The Tancho Koi, the ones with a nice head pattern, are one of the Japanese' favorite types of Koi. It is because this pattern looks like their national flag and the red crowned crane (Grus japonensis). Every Koi collector needs at least one Tancho in their collection.
