History:

Koi fish have been accidentally released into the wild all around the world, and on the whole are considered an invasive species. Interestingly enough, since koi are a type of carp, after a few generations in the wild their offspring will revert to the natural coloration of the common carp and away from the unique pattern that the koi was bred to have. A symbol of love and friendship in Japan, proudly display this emblematic animal anywhere in your home!
