Fish are a symbol of Christ, and there are seven koi representing the seven spirits of God.  Isaiah 11 lists the seven characteristics as a description of Christ. “The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him-the Spirit of wisdom and ofunderstanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord—and he will delight in the fear of the Lord. “ Isaiah 11:2-3

Water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit and the gold paint symbolizes the Spirit of God in all things.  “Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1:3 (Speaking of Christ)
