Kin Showas are a metallic version of a regular Showa. A good Kin Showa will have a nice balance of color. The pattern must be easy on the eyes and the should sharp edges between the patterns. Kin Showa are created by breeding a regular Showa and a Platinum Ogon.
By breeding regular Koi with a metallic Ogon, like a Platinum, new and interesting metallic varieties appear.
