Default Carp fish with pond plant

B and Q are selling some very reasonably priced pond water-lilies at the
moment. We have just got one and it says on the packet that it is: "nymphaea
marliacea albida".

It also says *do not* put in the pond with Koi Fish. Now all our Koi died
when we put in the pond some fish coming from China, which effectively
exported from there a Koi fish disease some years ago.

But we now have Goldfish,(some are pretty big). As i understand it goldfish
are a type of Carp, as are Koi fish.

So would anyone know if we can put goldfish safely in with this lily?
Thanks.

Yes you can. The only reason it says not to put with Koi is that they
will eat it but goldfish won't.
