    I always thought it was Koi. Google proves me wrong.

    It is in fact koi, which actually just means carp. Nishikigoi is the proper term, which means brocaded carp, but nobody uses that.

    Yeah, but the ‘-goi’ in ‘nishikigoi’ is just a variant on ‘koi’ following a common voicing rule in japanese, nishigi meaning ‘tapestry’ or something like that. That’s kind of like saying that ‘goldfish’ is something distinctly different from ‘fish’.
