Think this is something every koi keeper over here would like to know.
Would the skin be better if kept in a natural lake over here you do see some but only poor quality fish so it is hard to judge.
Fish from Japan do seem to be the best must be relevant to the environment.

Many of the better koi where they want to preserve the skin,stay in the concrete ponds.they do not get the same growth but seem to maintain the lustrous finish.My feelings are that with their plentiful water and none clinicly clean environments that is their secret.
