When you decide to take care of koi fish
in your own home pond, this is without a
doubt the fastest method of reducing
daily stress. The quiet, peaceful koi-filled
pond is a paradise to come home to each
and every day.
In order to take care of Koi Fish, keep
the following in mind:
Maintain Your Pond Equipment
Normally, pond equipment includes a
good pond dye, aeration system, protein
skimmer, powerful pump and filtration
system. Keep the surface water clean
using the protein skimmer in combination
with the filtration system.
Overfeeding Can Be Lethal
One of the unhealthiest mistakes you can
do to your koi is to overfeed them. The
quality of the water decreases which leads
to even more future issues. High nitrites and
ammonia in the water are some of these
problems which result into diseases like
parasites and fin rot.
Keep the Temperature
Believe it or not, koi can thrive during the
months of winter. When there is surface ice
pond, your koi can hibernate beneath the
surface, essentially. Use a floating de-icer to
stay on the safe side and keep a hole open for
the proper exchanges of gases through the ice.
Avoid Problems down the Line by
Checking the Water Consistently
Owners of koi ponds can tell you that issues such
as nutrient enriched runoff, excessive fish waste
and acid rain are not uncommon.. It is true that
koi fish thrive well and are easy to care for.
However, bad water quality will cause health
issues in even the hardiest of koi.
Koi fish are without a doubt, one of the most
mesmerizing aquatic creature. Believe it or not, you can
expect your koi to live between fifteen and twenty
years or longer. However, you will need to take care of
your fish with the right methods stated here for them to
live to their fullest potential.
