"Hildchen" is a "Gin Rin Ochiba Shigure(落葉時雨)." The variety name, "Ochiba Shigure," literally means "fallen leaves in autumn shower" in Japanese. "Gin Rin" refers to the metallic, or "diamond", scales. This is a very beautiful fish. Although not yet fully grown, she is approximately 46 cm (18 in.) long, tail included.

Hildchen was named after Kristina's mother, Hildegard Möller, shown on the right with her husband, Kurt Möller.
