Known as the nishikigoi, pattern nishiki “swimming (or living) jewel”, the unique name for this koi fish comes from the Japanese word “nishiki” which traditionally means beautiful or elegant things.
In most cultures, the presence of fish in water indicates that all elements of nature are at a harmonious balance.
