The Mirror Carp is a mutation of the Common Carp. It is believed that the fish was bred by monks over centuries in Asia. They prefer large bodies of water that are slow-moving with large quantities of vegetation and a softer bottom make up. They are very opportunistic feeders and scavengers, eating anything from snails, fish eggs, dead rotting fish, small crustaceans, waterborne insects, worms, a wide variety of plant matter, and algae. Don't be fooled by their appearance, they can fight hard and are known to steal rods.
