 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

There's more than one way to hand feed your Koi! Check out the video...

It seems that Koi are taking to the bottle. The fish shown here are being fed with a baby's bottle at an aquarium in China.

And in the pool of China's Tanhua Temple, located on the outskirts of Kunming City, the resident Koi can be bottle-fed liquid fish food by tourists for a small sum.

The idea isn't a new one, it seems. The huge Koi in this video are also enjoying their fish food, delivered via a baby's bottle at Koi Acres in Minnesota, USA. Some of the fish shown feeding here weigh 30 lb.
