Imported Japanese Koi
Koi, the most popular fresh-water ornamental pond fish, are often referred to as “living jewels” or “swimming flowers.” The oldest Koi of record was determined to be more than 200 years old in Japan, proving that given the right diet and water quality, they can outlive their owners. These beautiful fish have held our fascination for centuries: Koi, or nishikigoi – Japanese for “brocaded” carp – were first described in writing from a Chinese book written during the Western Chin Dynasty, 265-316 A.D. They are now at the heart of a vast movement of hobbyists, a passion created by the endearing personalities of these fish. Koi are very social and community-oriented, responding affectionately to their owners.
Koi are playful. They’ll play with a pond’s plants and small toys, and enjoy treats like other pets. They have an advanced amplifying system in their inner ears, giving Koi the ability to hear three times higher frequencies than other fish. They can taste. Koi have taste buds nearly everywhere: their lips, within their mouth cavities, even on most of their body including their fins and tail. They even have the ability to blush red in their fins and on their bodies when under stress.
The real treasure of these sparklingly colorful creatures is the calming affect they have on our lives. They enhance our living space beyond just mere beauty – inviting our sense of wonder and tranquility – making the time we spend in our landscapes that much more valuable.
