Keeping koi - sometimes called 'living jewels' but more properly known as nishikigoi - is a popular hobby in many parts of the world. Koi were developed in Japan over centuries through the selective breeding of different varieties of carp. The 15 recognized koi varieties present a spectacular array of coloursand markings. There is a perception that koi are priced out of reach of the average person, but it is quite possible to build up a decent collection without excessive outlay. A well-cared-for koi pond filled with healthy fish is the ultimate goal, but success with koi requires careful attention to water quality, feeding regimes and maintaining an appropriate number of fish for the size of the pond. From understanding koi anatomy to preparing fish for showing, "Koi" will offer everything you need to create and manage a koi collection.
