Surplus koi fish? Apparently. I guess when you’re in a pond you eat, swim and breed. And, eventually, breed yourself too many kids for the pond when there’s no predators. So this Saturday the National Arboretum will be selling off some of their koi to relieve crowding. If you have yourself a koi pond or perhaps a spare bathtub* here’s your chance to get yourself some government fish.
* Kidding! Please don’t get a pet you can’t give a good life to. Though I have to admit my white trash roots make me think that a clawfoot bathtub koi pond in the yard would be AWESOME.
