Wow that was pretty interesting.

Well, we can see carp everywhere, but this red carp of ours, "Hanako", is as old as 215 years.
I have to admit though, I was reading a bit too fast at first. In the above line (first line of the second paragraph) I didn't read the word carp closely enough and I ended up transposing the 'a' and the 'r'. This of course made this an entirely different story which didn't have much to do with koi.

That's amazing that a fish lived so long and the other fish where pretty old as well.. can we get some of that water for our tanks?

lol luniyn!! I transpose letters when i'm reading a lot - usually when i'm reading fast or tired or both!! it makes interesting reading sometimes when that happens!! take on a whole new meaning!! you wouldnt want to remove scales with tweezers from what you were thinking!! could be tricky! ;D
