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


    2. now you’re just being coy….


    3. Yeah, Koi = Fish, coy= sheepishly sexy


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


    5. 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’.
