Requirements

As a rule of thumb when keeping koi carp you should stick to ten gallons of water for every inch of fish, with a minimum water volume of 1000 gallons and a minimum pond depth of 3ft. Not only do small ponds physically limit the comfort of your koi carp, but they're also much harder to maintain.

Diet

In the wild, koi fish eat algae, plants, insects, worms, seeds, and anything they can stir up from the pond's bottom. They hunt along the pond floor and along the surface. If you have an ecosystem pond, they can continue having their natural diet.

Shipping & Returns

Our Koi can now be delivered via Courier. Fish are delivered in an Oxygenated box, costing £25 per box.
For fish up to 6 inches we can fit 6 in a box, but the very large Koi would need a box of their own.

Dainichi Koi Farm

Website: https://dainichikoifarm.com/indexe.html

When it comes to Koi breeding, Dainichi stands out as one of the most famous Koi farms in all of Japan.

Established in the mid 1900’s in Niigata by the legendary Minoru Mano, Dainichi could easily be a byword for quality.

Mr. Mano can be credited for being one of the fathers of the modern Nishikigoi hobby, establishing three keystone bloodlines that he spent his life perfecting.

These three famous bloodlines are known as the Dainichi Kohaku, Dainichi Sanke, and Dainichi Showa. A lot of the Koi Farms in Japan today can trace their parent fish back to Dainichi stock.

Sadly Mr. Minoru Mano passed away in 1998, but he passed on his legacy to his sons; Futoshi, Shigeru, and Hiroshi.

The Mano brothers have carried their Father’s work forward into modern times with dedication and talent, with Hiroshi leaving to establish another branch in Toyota city – Aichi prefecture.

Dainichi Koi farm consistently breeds champion fish, and are a regular participant in Koi shows across Japan.
