Koi fish have been a deeply symbolic animal in several cultures for centuries, and today can be seen in everything from tattoos to movies or this cosmic art piece. One of the legendary dragons fromeastern legendscomes from a koi which finally managed to swim up a waterfall after a century of effort before transforming into a dragon, and the fish now symbolizes strength, a journey completed, and many other positive traits. They have been bred for their colors for over 1300 years, and can be some of the most highly prized pets in the world. While a beloved and exquisite animal, they also have a lot of interesting characteristics outside of the stories and legends associated with them.
Koi can actually be surprisingly large! While those you typically see in a pond may be around a foot in length, they are capable of growing over 3 feet long, and weighing over 30lbs! They're alsoomnivorous, which means they're perfectly happy to eat a variety of things. Snails, plants, even bits of fruit. Unlike your dog, they can survive for weeks without your attention by slurping up algae growing in their enclosure like little aquatic vacuum cleaners! They even haveteeth in their throat(!?) to help them swallow things they've sucked up.
While this is amazing, they can also be damaging to local ecosystems, as their constant vacuuming can lead to silty waters without the support of the plants and growth that had been keeping a place dust-free. So try to keep them in their enclosure! They can also live for decades, with reports claiming some fish having lived for over a century! Koi fish can also be trained to come to you, and will often recognize you as a source of treats just like a dog. If you've ever wanted a large fish to nibble snacks out of your palm...the koi is for you!
