We would like to start by thanking everyone in these difficult times for following the new rules we have in place for click and collect at the shop. It has worked really well. While difficult we have managed to get food and equipment out to our clients, old and new. While we have been allowed to open as we deal with live stock and cannot do that from home, everyone has been great when social distancing and cleaning everything down. Thank you again.
The couriers have been really good too, while things have taken longer to arrive, most of the stuff is out now.
We have managed to send some Koi, on a Wednesday only. Please don’t worry if you haven’t received the Koi yet, you will. Last week we sent 10 boxes out all in one day, and its hard to do anymore than that because we want the Koi in the bags for as little time as possible. We have personally delivered to London, Birmingham and other parts of the UK when we have had 10 plus boxes to deliver.
The Tosai are now pretty much sold out, as are the larger Koi. It has been a very busy period for us with uncertainty about any new Koi coming in from Japan, but we hope to have some news about that this coming week, fingers crossed.
A big thank you to Evolution Aqua for keeping up with the orders and getting them out on time. In 7 weeks we have sold around 30 Nexus units, plus all the equipment that goes with them, plus many K1 Micro Beads. Not only great for us as a business but its so good to see so many new ponds springing up. Very good for our industry.
The YouTube channel is still growing very fast, its pretty overwhelming actually, I have never known a social media quite like it. You can see all the new videos on this website as they automatically show up here
However here are a few of the most recent, including our very own Pauls pond!
Amazing 3000 gallon Koi Pond, and SUPERB BONSAI!! *MUST WATCH*#koipond #Bonsai #Koicarp
This Pond belongs to Paul, who is the co owner of Quality Nishikigoi.
We needed to do a little maintenance on the pond this morning and check one of the Koi.
This is one of the few ponds we have installed a Drum filtration system on, mainly due to the pond being 27 years old and we could not install a Nexus system without having to break a lot of concrete where the filters are.
Paul buys the majority of his Koi when he comes to Japan in October and has a great collection. Along with the Koi he has some superb Bonsai tree's which is one of his passions.
Again, we did a scrape but we could not find anything to show you. Always the case, when you want to find something you cannot, but if were not looking we probably would! We have ordered a screen for the scope so we should be able to show something soon!
Also, The Nexus 320 Give away was mentioned on this video, so make sure you are subscribed!!
6700 Pond, Plus 110w UV BULB CHANGE!!#Koipond #Pond #Nexus #Evolutionaqua
This is a 6700 gallon pond that was initially built 15 years ago.
We have been looking after it and upgrading it for the past 4 years.
The pond has been covered so was a good time to take the Koi down and do the maintenance needed.
The issue was always a single drain going into 2 filters, which were the very original Nexus 200 series. They worked okay, the pipework didn't work okay! It was too small, not correct. So we re fitted all the pipework and also upgraded to the Nexus 220's and new UV's and pumps. It now works pretty well, apart from blanket weed and needing the UV bulbs changing.
2 x Nexus 220
2 x 110EVO UV's
2 x 12,000 pumps.
10.5KW Air Source Heat Pump.
We hope you are all safe, and we hope we can welcome you to Quality Nishikigoi very soon.
