Fort Worth is Getting Koi

60 new Koi fish will be added to Fort Worth's Botanic Gardens

A Fort Worth attraction that lost exotic fish in a chlorination accident earlier this year is getting 60 new fish to replenish its stock.

The new Koi fish will be added to the three-pond Japanese Garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden today.

About 100 of the fish died in February in an accidental chlorination that occurred during a routine pond cleaning. The fish ranged in size from about six inches to three feet and were worth between $10,000 and $15,000.

Visitors can view the multicolored fish while dropping pellets of food into the ponds. The ponds normally contain about 800 Koi.
