Is It Okay To Put Butterfly Koi In Aquarium?

    My understanding is that they're smaller than regular koi, so maybe it should be fine? Provided that I have a big tank 150+ gallons

    Butterfly koi don’t get the body size of some of the other koi. They can still get to be thirty inches or more. It truly depends on what you want in this one fifty. How much filtration you’re willing to provide. While they’re beautiful, I just wouldn't tank a koi. Now, if you had a pond in mind for it to go to once it became too big for your tank, you could get a baby and enjoy it for a while. Short while. They grow fast. :)

    Consider ponds with a viewing glass window. Best of both worlds!
