Its a hybrid of two species, the wild carp and a particular variety of koi (common carp).

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Carp can jump. Biggest thing is to make sure you have a proper pond for it. They are not aquarium fish but pond fish. Its not unusual to see a pond with netting over the top. This isn't to keep the fish in, but to keep the animals out. Birds and other things can make quick work of domesticated fish. Koi tend to think most things have come to give them food.
