Better Grade Koi – Cyprinus carpio
Description: These better grade koi are a mix of Go Sanke, Utsuri, Ogon and various others in Doitsu and normal patterns. They are imported by us and acclimatised before sale. They display strong colours and are bright, active and hungry! We only have these available in small sizes.
Maximum Size: Upto 36″ but on average 12-16″ when mature.
Environment: As with all of the Koi types, the best possible water conditions are required. A well filtered pond with specific koi filtration is desired. Aeration though the addition of air pumps is also highly recommended.
Water Conditions: Koi require a pH range of 7-8.5, Ammonia and Nitrite to be virtually 0ppm and dissolved oxygen saturation to remain above 6ppm. They are tolerable to lower oxygen saturation values than a lot of fish, although this is not recommended.
***THESE FISH ARE CURRENTLY HOUSE INDOORS AND MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR INTRODUCING TO A POND UNTIL SPRING***
As with any pet, please fully research for yourself to ensure that you can accommodate a fish of this type in your home.
If you are ordering though the website we will send a random selection as it is not always possible to fulfill all types and varieties.
