Koi and Goldfish
Koifish and goldfish are both members of the carp family. Koi were developed from common carp in Japan in the 1820s and are still very popular there as they are a symbol of Love and Friendship.
Here at Tree of Life we have the koi fish close to the entrance and are also a symbol of
LOVE and FRIENDSHIP, WELCOME, BIENVENIDOS.
Goldfish tend to be smaller than koifish and have a greater variety of body shapes, and fin and tail configuration.
Koifish have prominent barbels on their lip.
