The black ones are also koi, they have been bred over the years to have lots of different colours! You can also see white ones, and ones that have patches of colours.

Wonderful. Deshu! These fish are called koi, they're a domesticated version of the carp, Cyprinus carpio. I love seeing pictures of koi like this, something so graceful about it! I did an art project about koi :)
