Will Miss #209 - koi

Koi have to be some of the luckiest fish in the world. They're essentially "pet" fish which are freaking huge. If you go to parks or places where they are kept, you find that they are very aggressive because they have no fear of humans. They'll often come to the surface of the water in droves seeking food. As someone who grew up with a father who fished and never experienced what might be seen as "friendly" fish and who only knew skittish ones that didn't want to be caught and eaten, it's quite a novel experience, especially when I see the ones that resemble giant goldfish.

I'll miss these domesticated carp.
