Scientific Name: Cyprinus carpio
 
Here is an interesting quote from Wikipedia, "One recent study on the mitochondrial DNA of various common carp indicate that koi are of the East Asian subspecies. However another recent study on the mitochondrial DNA of koi have found that koi are descended from multiple lineages of common carp from both Western Eurasian and East Asian varieties. This could be the result of koi being bred from a mix of East Asian and Western Eurasian carp varieties, or koi being bred exclusively from East Asian varieties and being subsequently hybridized with Western Eurasian varieties (the butterfly koi is one known product of such a cross). Which is true has not been resolved."

Comments
Koi are very nice fish for a pond. They will usually grow too big for most aquariums. Indeed they will grow to be big enough to need a really large pond. But it's enjoyable to start them off in an aquarium, where they can be easily seen, and later before they grow too big for an aquarium, carefully acclimate them to a pond at a time of year that the temperature of the water in the pond is within 2 degrees of the temperature of the water in their aquarium, so they will not be shocked by the change in water temperature.
 
If you do not plan to build a large pond with several thousands of gallon of water, you should stock your pond with Goldfish or other even smaller species of fish, for example White Clouds.

Butterfly Koi have much longer fins that standard Koi. Butterfly have just been introduced into the fish keeping hobby in the last few years. Butterfly Koi tend to have one color now. Most of the Butterfly Koi we have are Golden or a Metallic Pink, which are unique and beautiful colors. Soon Butterfly Koi will be available with other colors and patterns. 
 
 

The picture to the right shows some young Gold Ogon Koi in an aquarium in our facility. These fish were about 4" long and were covered with bright metallic gold scales that show very well in dark ponds.

Recommended Diet
Floating food labeled for Goldfish and not labeled for Tropical Fish. Several brands of goldfish food are available in most stores that sell fish for ponds. Floating pellet foods are very good for larger pond fish and are also available in most stores that sell fish for ponds.

We have read advice elsewhere that all goldfish and Koi should be fed sinking food, because when fish take food off the surface of the water, they will swallow air bubbles that will cause problems. This is contrary to our experience.

I just watched my goldfish eat off the surface. After most mouthfuls of food, he burped a bubble of air out his gill. The ancestors of this fish have been eating food off the surface of the water for a very long time. Of course they also ate off the bottom and at all levels of the water between the top and bottom too.

So don't worry about your goldfish or Koi swallowing air while eating. Feeding food that floats is a good practice. If your fish don't eat all of the food in 10 minutes, get a net and remove the uneaten food. Click here for more about feeding.

I also feed Koi a few live Black Worms. I feed each Koi two or three Black Worms every other day. Click here for more about Black Worms.
 
Later comment: there is no longer any need to feed your Koi or any other type of fish a variety of foods. Premium fish foods now contain the widest possible variety of foods and nutrients.

Compatibility
Koi are usually kept with other Koi. Regular Koi will sometimes nip on the slower swimming Butterfly Koi. So, if you keep them together, be sure the Butterfly Koi are not being nipped and annoyed by the Koi. Koi can also be kept with Pond Comets and Shubunkins, but not with Fantails, Orandas, or Telescopes, which swim slower, are less aggressive, and are not compatible with Pond Comets and Koi.

 About our Fish ...
Almost all the photographs and videos, shown on this web site, were taken by us of our fish in our aquariums.
 
Compare the healthy, beautiful, energetic fish in our beautiful aquariums to the fish in our competitors pictures. Their fish often look thin with clamped fins and poor color.
We buy the highest quality fish, produced by the best fish farms or caught by the best collectors of wild fish, then we take incredibly good care of our fish in our beautiful aquariums.
 
If you compare the pictures on this site to our competitors pictures, you can instantly see, our fish and aquariums are better!  ;^ }
Will the fish you get from us look like the fish in our pictures? No! This is similar to buying kittens and puppies that will change as they grow to become cats and dogs.
 
We stock and ship fish that are the ideal size to sell. Not so small that they will not do well when shipped. Yet not so big that they have become much more expensive.
 
The fish in almost all of our pictures were young fish like the ones we have for sale that we raised up, and you can too!
