Koi are an incredibly gorgeous and graceful fish, not only known for their beauty and perseverance, but also for their longevity. Until just recently when radio carbon tests dated a Greenland Shark at over 400 years old, a Koi by the name of Hanako was the record holding oldest fish at 226 years old. Hanako's age was verified by analyzing the growth rings on her scales, much like the way we anaylize trees. Koi are a highly prized fish that, depending on type, quality and age, can be worth millions. Even so, they are still often overlooked or underestimated, and can also reflect those gifts and treasures that lay submerged, just waiting to be discovered.
