Haru, the Pet of the Day
Name: Haru
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Koi
Home: Rochester, New York, USA
   This is Haru (Japanese for 'Spring') who is one of our four koi, all of whom are named after the seasons. This one is the largest and by far the strongest of the four, and was designated Haru because at the end of the winter, Spring brings revival, rebirth, and creation, which is the greatest power. He is about a year old, and is close to six inches long. He is clearly the king of the 55-gallon tank, and there are always other fish following him around. He is our only fish, aside from our late Arowana Siberius, who has been bold enough to leap out of the tank - and survive.
