Ornamental carp
(Metalic carp)

Ornamental carp have been bred for their looks. There are hundreds of variations from ghost koi to the koi carp we keep in garden ponds. Some can grow to sizes of 20lb+ in the UK and fight no less ferociously than the king carps.

Not many places stock ornamentals, probably because of the extra cost of stocking compared to King carp, but it is a nice surprise when we do catch one, guaranteed to make a happy memory.
