A few days ago, I saw many koi fish in a restaurant’s pond. Koi are ornamental varieties of domesticated common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that are kept for decorative aims in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. Koi varieties are differentiated by coloration, patterning, and scalation. Some of the main colors are white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream.
In Japan, koi is a symbol of love and friendship. Chinese culture believes that placing a nine-koi-fish painting at home or office can bring good luck.
