The tradition of Koi
For hundreds of years, Koi ponds have been a symbol of prosperity, luck, and beauty. The tradition first sprang from 17th Century Japan, where rice farmers kept common carp in their paddies. Noticing a color variation in some of the fish, the farmers began to practice selective breeding to develop the fiery colored carp we know today as Koi.
The age-old tradition of keeping Koi ponds remains strong to this day. Koi are believed to attract good fortune, provide aesthetic delight, and even offer therapeutic benefits with their aura of tranquility. Add one to your home today for lasting serenity.
