This is really great to see, I like fish in general. Yes the white one is hard to escape amongst all that colour. Well the fish look very realistic.

lol! Aww yea I guess Koi can get pretty big, so it might be scary to have one nibbling at your fingers. They are beautiful creatures though, I agree

Heh yeah they can be creepy when they do that. My friend has I wanna say 80+ in his backyard and when a lot of them are doing that at the same time makes you step back a little because they're coming at you with their mouths smacking lol They are very beautiful indeed. I love their markings.
