You may have considered putting in a Koi pond but wonder how difficult it will be to take care of these fish? Maybe you feel you should start with an easy-keeping fish before getting a Koi. Actually, Koi are quite easy to care for and as long as you know all the ‘how to`s’ of their care and where to shop for their needs, you will be all set to purchase some Koi for your pond.
Koi are among some of the most beautiful fish there are, so it`s no wonder why the Japanese took great pride in selectively breeding these fish. Their stunning colors and patterns are what make this fish an extremely popular fish, not to mention their personalities, for example, the ability to be hand-fed.
A Koi fish`s color should be vibrant. Black should be deep black and red should be a very bright color. A dull black fish or one that has scales or spots that are graying slightly usually means the fish is unhealthy. This is also true in a White Koi that is not Snow White, but has specks of dirty grey as color is a great indicator of superb health so look for brightly-colored Koi with bright eyes when purchasing your Koi. as per www.articlealley.com
Koi come in the colors; White, Black, Red, Yellow, Blue and Cream. You can enhance their color by feeding them Marigolds, Shrimp, Blue-green Algae and Plankton as well as freeze-dried foods like Brine Shrimp and Daphina.
