Koi with a red head patch are called "Tancho." Most common are "Tancho Kohaku (all- white Koi with Tancho)," "Tancho Sanshoku (white Koi with Sumi similar to Shiro Bekko, & with Tancho)," & "Tancho Showa (Showa Sanshoku without red markings except for Tancho)," etc. However, "Tancho Goshiki (Koi of five colors with Tancho)," & "Tancho Hariwake" are rare. Tancho do not form a single, independent kind of Nishikigoi; all can be bred from Kohaku, Taisho Sankshoku or Showa Sanshoku.more at link
