I thought you might enjoy these pictures of goldfish and coy swimming together or asking to be fed.  The photographs are from my collection. (Some were shot through a protective wire mesh cover, which was a bit of a challenge.)  Still, they worked pretty well, given the limitations.  It would have been more fun to jump into the water with them!

If you want to see if you can do better, I found these lovely creatures at Merriefield Garden Center in Northern Virginia.  They have everything:  plants, wine, a dog run, landscaping services, recycling services, and – yes – FISH!  They are indoors now, waiting for summer, just like we are!

Here is the garden center’s website:

About coy:  According to Wikipedia, “The word koi comes from Japanese, simply meaning “carp”. It includes both the dull grey fish and the brightly colored varieties. What are known as koi in English are referred to more specifically as nishikigoi in Japan (literally meaning “brocaded carp”). In Japanese, koi is a homophone for another word that means “affection” or “love”; koi are therefore symbols of love and friendship in Japan. The koi is also an often recurring symbol in Irezumi, the Japanese art of traditional tattooing.” For more info, go to:
