From the Inside Flap: The magnificent Koi has emerged from relative obscurity to become one of the most highly-prized fish to keep. Choosing from the spectacular varieties, the search for the unique one-off Koi, and the challenge of creating an ideal environment, makes Koi-keeping the most fascinating of hobbies, and it now has a worldwide following.
In The Ultimate Koi, editor Nick Fletcher has recruited a star-studded cast of specialists to contribute to this definitive pictorial reference.
The anatomy and physiology of Koi is examined in Section I, with an insight into Koi senses. There is a detailed, illustrated breakdown of the Koi varieties, with a special study of Tategoi and unique Koi.
Section II deals with building and setting up a pond, including an in-depth examination of filtration and a survey of the best plants to buy to create the ideal Koi environment. Advice is given on seasonal care of the Koi pond, plus tips on maintaining a small Koi pond.
Section III is devoted to Koi Care, starting with maturing the pond and filter and buying Koi, followed by chapters on feeding, breeding and handling Koi. There is comprehensive coverage of disease and parasites in Koi, with advice on disease recognition and treatment.
Enjoying Your Koi is the subject of Section IV. This gives guidelines on showing and judging Koi, and information on the range of club activities available.
The final section is a useful reference, with tips on general maintenance and pond security. Lavishly illustrated with over 200 colour photographs, this book is a must for the true Koi connoisseur.
