We have finally put Koi into the new QT pond this weekend. With the Japan trip and other things happening at the shop.
We added 10 Koi around 12″ each. We will keep an eye on the water and the Koi behaviour over the next few weeks before we add more Koi.
Check out the Video below.

Okay, this is the final part of the new pond build at our facility.
This is a 4000 gallon pond which will be mainly used for quarantining larger Koi at our shop. This now makes our separate QT facility 8000 gallons in 5 ponds. Giving us one of the best QT systems in the UK.
It will be used properly when the new shipment of Tosai arrives next month. Check the website and Facebook for further updates guys.
You can see the stages of the build in these videos below
The pond is run on a 30" Micro K1 bead filter from Evolution Aqua. We will be trialing it over the next few months to see if it can do as we expect. You can buy this filter from us at https://qualitynishikigoi.com/product/30-k1-micro-bead-filter/
We added 10 smaller Koi today and we will see how they get on over the next few weeks.
