Israeli Koi – Cyprinus carpio
Description: These Israeli Koi are hardy fish imported and quarantined by us. These are hardy little fish and we have sold good numbers of these every year. Israel have long been established as providing quality koi at affordable prices. Israeli Koi over the size of 4-5″ are vaccinated against KHV, which offers peace of mind, and allows them to be added to ponds that have been subject to KHV historically.
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.
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.
