      My fish 'Charlie' has come home now, see her arrive in her new pond here!

      1. Jeff Lith

        @Jax Teller I guess its depending on the person who owns them. A youtuber actually use chiron for snow shoveling.

      2. Jax Teller

        @Jeff Lith because it's not supposed to be used as an "asset". It's liking buying a Bugatti Chiron. Look up the depreciation per mile on one of those fuckers.... it's a few thousand dollars

      I never thought I would love Koi fish until one day, my parent brought me to a manor Coffee in the mountain. That was like a garden with a huge pond. And there were so many Koi swimming. And I notice their pattern and color for some reason I don't know why. I thought it was an illusion but later when I went to the lavatory I found that there were many Koi fish illustrated books around. Then I realize the reason that makes me feel special to those Koi fish. I start to understand their beauty since then

      Loved this! So well made, so enlightening. The way you progressively added more and more information until the explanation of why some koi are so expensive was very well made, easy to follow and enthralling. Hope Charlie is enjoying his new home!

      Loved your documentary! Very professional and I watched with rapt attention to every minute of it and not for a second was I anything but fascinated and entertained. You are a natural narrator and your on screen presence is so natural and calming.

    22. Shake n' Bake

      One time I’m over fed my neighbors koi... you can assume what happened. . . . Rest In Peace Starchy. ☹️

    23. Abhinay Limbu

      So which is the most expensive?

      1. Carl and Alex

        The red and white one which was at the auction :)

    24. Ian Marr

      Coralfish12g and his Koi adventures worth a watch too.. Thanks for this one, very interesting subject. Amazing that a fish can be an investment like real estate.

      1. Carl and Alex

        We've watched a few of his videos! Full energy that guy!

    25. Little Brook Reader

      WOW!!! BEAUTIFUL!!!

    26. Karen Banogon

      Ok. At the end it's still a fish. It always fascinates me how the human brain thinks . Amazing ! Kinda like " caviar ". It's fish eggs for crying out loud. God... I salute you for making the brain brilliant and stupid as well.

    27. Mili M

      Looks like an overweight goldfish to me

    28. Robert Baird

      Incorrect: Koi are not the most expensive fish in the world. Blue fin tuna are far more sort after and have far greater value.

      1. Carl and Alex

        @Robert Baird wow didn’t know that, thanks! If I could re edit my video id say ‘most expensive life fish’ thanks for the info. :) RIP your little koi ❤️

      2. Robert Baird

        @Carl and Alex Depends how you define value. Highest price paid for a bluefin tuna was US$3.1million in 2019. You may quibble and breakdown the cost per kilogram, or live weight. I raised koi as a child in a Japanese "ike" or pond in New Zealand. My prize fish was albino and weighed over 4 kilograms. He died after 8 years from a Kingfisher attack. He also suffered from skin cancer and netting the pond helped to some extent. He was a prolific breeder and sired more than 20 offspring, none of whom reached his size and girth. But I enjoyed your video. Sorry if I came across as antagonistic.

      3. Carl and Alex

        Ok what do they sell for? :)

    29. Kringy

      When I first found out people collect fountain pens worth thousands of dollars, I had the same reaction to this video. Wow! Highly informative though.

      People selling those expensive items for spending / transfer dirty money to other place. It is for cover up.

    55. Hydro Aegis

      Nah sounds more like money laundering for the wealthy.

    56. Alyssa C

      1. Carl and Alex

        Wow, thank you!

    60. John L Guildoo

      Do they eat them? We have carp and no recipes.

    61. Johan Franzen

      One pun you can use is that koi also means love (恋=love) so koi love is koi koi

    62. tdotc

      videos do exist that soothe the soul.. absolutely lovely

    63. Levi Harvey

      They're expensive because it's actually Magickarp and at LVL 20 will evolve into a Gyarados

    64. dolandlydia

      N ever understood the fascination with this stuff.

    65. jay fox

      I know why those fish is so expensive.

    66. Headband OG

      I wonder if they mounted the fish when it died?

    67. Sheryl H M Kiwi

      Fascinating thanks. I learned lot, what a beautiful fish.

      1. Carl and Alex

        Glad you enjoyed it Sheryl.

    77. Fwoosh312

      Anything is worth what someone is willing to pay.

    78. The Music Nations

      Koi" mean love?

    79. carmay3600

      My first thought was that the fish must not like being moved and sold like that. Just like old people don’t want to move out of their house to live with strangers. It’s not surprising that the fish died shortly after.

    80. Laisa hh

      Its sad that it's just a show now

    81. Greta B.

      Being a Koi dealer is kinda a flex. I love Koi fish 🎏

    82. K. R.

      Most importantly: How does it taste and how's the meat texture? Are 4 to 5 meals really worth its price?

    83. K. R.

      All it can do, is Splash. Its name is Magikarp.

    86. Tom Lompa

      Just the first minute was enough to tell me that there are some really stupid people in the world with lots of money. These are carp. Only good for fertilizer.

      Typical Chinese -- if they cared about animals there wouldn't be so many extinct species.

    97. Doe Serpent

      I have seen so many of these in the temple..

    98. A healthy journey

      A fish gets transported from pool to pool probably gets daily massages meanwhile right outside there's people starving in poverty.. this was a great video and very informative... but couldn't help and think of the people that might benefit from this amount of attention or even a fraction of it
