Do you own a koi fish pond?
Well, that would depend on who you ask. Some people will tell you that koi fish ponds are a waste of money. While others would say they would actually spend more money on theirs they enjoy them so much.
For many people the koi in their ponds are a pet just like the dog in your home. But just like your cat or dog, a koi fish pond needs attention and they cost money to maintain and keep healthy.
The big difference that koi have over your dog or cat is that in an instant they can become a key component in you growing your own food that you can eat (and save you significant money on your grocery bill in the process).
