Albino Grass Carp
Albino Grass carp (ctenopharyngodon idella) is common addition to many ponds as it has a reputation for eating blanket weed. Albino Grass Carp are the light coloured albino variety with pink eyes. They will eat all aquatic vegitation, but much prefer Koi pellets and sticks with the exception of Duckweed which they absolutely love! These fish can also grow in excess of 3ft! Albino Grass Carp are also incredibly good jumpers.
In the native wild they are found in rivers. They are not known to breed successfully in the UK.
Grass Carp have been released as a natural aquatic vegetation control in many countries, but this requires large numbers to make an impact.
Grass Carp are also available in Normal (green) Varieties.
