Koi or  nishikigoi , literally carp, are ornamental domesticated varieties of the common carp  that are commonly kept for ornamental reasons in outdoor ponds and water gardens. They are sometimes also referred to as  Japanese carp.

They were developed from carp in the 1820's in Japan. Today they continue to be popular as they represent love and friendship. Many colors and patterns have been introduced, the common colors include white, black, red, yellow, blue, and cream. The popular category of koi is the Gosanke, composed of the Taisho Sanshoku, Kohaku, , and Showa Sanshoku varieties.

What are the Koi Origins?

A carp is a fish originally found in Central Europe. and Asia. Other carp species were domesticated in East Asia, where they were raised for human consumption. The carp's endurance allowed it to settle in to many climates and water conditions, which allowed it to be domesticated and spread to many new places. Natural color alterations of these carp took place across many countries. Over a thousand years ago, Carp were first raised for color in China.
