Some Basic Information About Pond Fish
Koi can live very long lives in healthy koi ponds (30 or 40 years is not unheard of, records have been set around 80 years of age). Koi (also called Nishikigoi, Nishi Koi, Brocaded Carp) need adequate space (approx. 500 gallons per fully grown koi fish)and some depth because they will grow to about 3-4 feet in length depending variety. Although the growth of koi is dependent on pond size, they will grow large even in small ponds. Koi are typically not recommended for preformed ponds or ponds smaller than 500 gallons.

Koi are very intelligent, can have unique personalities, and will become very tame. Koi that do not feel threatened will eat out of your hand and enjoy a diverse diet. It’s not unheard of for koi to eat watermelon, spinach, and other fruits and vegetables in addition to sticks and pellets. Fish are like humans and other pets in that a diet rich in vitamins and proteins ensures good color and health. Better foods have a higher digestion rate, therefore, causing less fish waste which leads to healthier pond water, fewer algae in the pond, and less pond maintenance.
