Koi Wisdom

In this contemplative article we look at how to avoid the trappings of koi appreciation. It might sound strange, but becoming obsessed with achieving "perfection" kills the joy of our hobby, and we tackle it head-on. 


Stocking Light

Many koi keepers wonder why they are constantly getting koi health issues, or why they can't achieve the results seen in Japan. We believe that stocking rates play a significant role in the health of our koi and their ability to reach their potential. In this fascinating article, that's what we explore.    



Koi Health is a paramount element of our wonderful hobby and in this series, we join health practitioners on pond callouts in the hope of learning a thing or two.
