"Charlie Brown" is a "Kinginrin Chagoi (茶鯉)". "Cha" is "tea", and "goi" is "carp", so Charlie is a tea-carp. Charlie is very friendly and has grown very fast -- both characteristics typical of Chagois. Charlie was named after the Peanuts character, but this Charlie is a girl. In fact, in this picture, you can see she is somewhat swollen with eggs.
