The Mirror carp was the original koi that the Germans gifted to the Japanese in the early part of the last century it is from these beginings that the doitsu comes from but here is where it gets confusing if you get any of the twelve classes that are of doitsu origin then you prefix the classification with doitsuoh I just took the description right out of the link you gave me
Doitsu = German scale-less or mirror carp. It didnt say it included leather or smooth skinned too or that large scale is included.. is Mirror - a large scale?
Doitsu Sanke , Doitsu Showa, Doitsu Tancho doitsu Bekko etc
However say if the tancho has black markings along its back after the round red marking that is also a doitsu then it would become a Doitsu Tancho Sanke and so on "Confused" ?
Doitsu is basically how the Japanese tried to pronouce the Gernans other title for their country Deutschland .
Hope this all helps
