Koi

Koi (Japanese for Carp), symbolic of transformation. According to Chinese and Japanese myth, on the Yellow River in China, there is a waterfall known as the "Dragon's Gate.”  When fish reach the waterfall they try to swim against the pounding current to reach the top. After one hundred years of trying, a koi successfully leaped to the top, and the gods turned it into a golden dragon.
