They are also found in Doitsu (Scaleless) varieties. They are also found in Doitsu (Scaleless) varieties. 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.
