There are several varieties of carp

From the Cyprinidae family, carp live in stagnant or slow-flowing freshwater with abundant aquatic plant life. There are several varieties of common carp, known as mirror and leather carp. Other varieties, native to Asia, were introduced into ponds for their particular diet: carp eat copious amounts of plants. Silver carp filter water to eliminate plankton from water green due to excessive plant life.
