Keeping them in the dark?
Been told that keeping koi in the dark will bring out underlying sumi a few questions?
1/Has anyone used this method?
2/ Did it work?
3/Did it have any effect on the white , red ,or other colouring?
4/ How dark e.g. subdued light,pitch black,?
5/Were they kept in the dark 24 hours a day or allowed any daylight?
6/ If it worked how long did it take weeks, months ?
Thanks in advance for any responses.

I have seen small fish grown on in garages with only one window and the red has faded + the pattern on two Ochiba's faded but not sure about Sumi.
