Ai Goromo

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.
