was about 200 years ago when Nishikigoi appeared.
From the process to cultivate edible black
food carp, some food carp was born with colors by mutation.
By crossing these carp breeders have finally developed the
Nishikigoi is now called "living jewel"
"Kokugyo" and "king of ornamental fish."
Nishikigoi represents Japanese culture. It is also loved and
appreciated by the name of "Koi" all over the world.
There are various charms of Koi. The first
charm is that it is easy to raise Koi. A big pond is not necessarily
requirement to keep Koi. Some enjoy Koi in small few hundred
gallon tank or even in an aquarium. In addition, unlike other
animals, it is all right even if we do not feed them for a
week or so.
Rich in variety is probably its next charm.
There are more than 80 varieties in the same Nishikigoi spices.
It is truly enjoyable to watch colorful Koi with red, white,
black or gold swim elegantly in a pond.
Nishikigoi is also a very peaceful ornamental
fish. Koi does not have a boss. They do not harm each other.
It can eat food from your hands. It is really lovely when
it grows in this way.
Last of all, the biggest charm lies in that
Koi is "a growing beauty." No artwork will grow
up. Koi becomes more beautiful as it grows big. There is pleasure
of raising Nishikigoi here. It is relaxing to watch them swim
in a pond or a tank.
It is not that difficult to keep Nishikigoi
and they are also affordable. Please try to keep Nishikigoi.
I am sure it will be such a pleasant experience!
