Doitsu Hariwake are like a Kikusui, but they have a metallic yellow pattern instead of a metallic red one. Look for one with a nice Kohaku pattern and snow white skin. Doitsu Hariwake are an interesting variety. They are yellow and white. This color combination is rare.
The yellow of a Doitsu Hariwake gets deeper, like a Yamabuki Ogon, when it is exposed to more sunlight. If you have one in a tank in your basement and your Doitsu Hariwake loses some of its yellow, don't worry, for it will come back in the summer.
