Koi n the Hikari-Moyo group are very popular due to their sparkling ground and abundance of pattern variations. Hikari-Moyo comprise all shiny Koi excepting Hikari-muji and Hikari Utsuri mentioned before. They include "Hariwake" with patterns of gold blended with platinum skin, "Yamato-Nishiki (Japanese brocade)" with patterns of Sanke shining on platinum skin, and “Kujacku (peacock gold)" with shiny Goshiki (five colors) patterns.
Beside these three major kinds, there are also "Kinsui (literally 'brocaded water,' for shiny Shusui with lots of Hi)" and "Shochikubai (literally 'pine, bamboo and plum,' for shiny Ai-goromo with wave indigo patterns)." These are very rare specimens.
Like all Koi in the other Hikari-Mono groups, strong Hikiari (luster) is essential. This is followed by bold, well defined patterns. Color patterns that are well balanced on the entire body are desirable.
