Just a quick update from Quality Nishikigoi.
2021 has pretty much continued from 2020 for us which means we are really busy and have been throughout winter. With pond upgrades and builds plus new fish now arriving at the shop.
As many know, we were lucky enough to get to Japan last November with the help of the breeders and the Japanese embassy in London who granted our business Visa. It was a nice trip being one of the VERY few who made it out there. We managed to find some amazing Koi for us, and our clients. In total we exported over 500 boxes from Japan from this trip which is massive for us. Many going to the USA dealers for re-sale in the States.
Random day in the mountains. Visit to Breeders and more!!At the moment while we are in Japan it is very quiet. So we can actually take things at a slower pace. Its nowhere near as rushed as we usually are when here with up to 25 clients per trip. So we can see much more and just take our time, go places we don't go as often as others etc.
This is just a roughly put together day for us when we are in Japan. Its so good just driving around and seeing things you haven't seen for ages, you can digest things again. It really does bring back the memories from over the years.
Shintaro Parent Harvest 2020!! Special Koi!!This is some of Shintaro Koi Farms parent Koi Harvest!
Its hard to believe that these Koi make the beautiful Koi we buy, and have in our pond. These are where the magic is.
Some won't look very nice...Some you wouldn't think are good...but for parent Koi they are priceless.
Enjoy the Video.
We got the first shipment in February and they are just about to finish quarantine. We got 1300 Koi in on the shipment and unfortunately 75% of these are now already sold…
NEW KOI UPDATE AND LOOK AT TOSAI!!#newkoi #Koi #qualitynishikigoi #koiforsale
This is an update on how the new Koi are doing which we received last week from our December Japan trip. Just to tell you what we are doing with them and how well they are coming along.
A quick peak at the new Tosai. They are NOT ready yet but we will do another video next week of the deals.
However, we have a new shipment coming in next week which we are very excited about. Some of these WILL be going up on the website. I have just finished preparing the website for this to happen so please be patient. Koi of all sizes and varieties.
I know it can be frustrating for people who want to buy our Koi who cannot get into the shop but please remember, we do have a very loyal following of clients who we have dealt with for decades who buy the Koi from us like they have for many years.
The YouTube channel has helped us to sell a lot of Tosai the last 2 years. The greatest thing about this for us is how many people from the previous years are coming back to us buying more Koi and not just tosai, we appreciate you guys so much. Return business is what we are here for.

Pond builds are booked up for a long time. With the Koi in the shop and customers coming into the shop we don’t have time for any full builds. We are doing many filter upgrade’s though and continue to do this. We have 18 booked in as I type, all over the UK.
5000 Gallon Koi Pond - A JUMPER!!!This pond has been running for 3 months now and all the water is spot on.
There have been some readings on the system, a bit of nitrite... a bit of ammonia but that's exactly what is to be expected. The first stage is now complete. Now we just wait for the media to kick in fully and the pond will be perfect. This is a great video for a time frame to how long a new pond takes.
This had 2 filtration units on so its will take longer for both units to settle.
The Nexus has 100L of K1, the Bead 100L of Micro K1. That is a huge filter area.
Last year saw us sell in excess of 100 full pond systems, some we installed, and many the clients installed. This has not slowed down as we are going into Spring.
We have updated our email servers so if you cannot get hold of us via the phone please send an email over to us. We will get back to you ASAP!
The website has been doing well, something we have had to adapt to in the current situation. We were slow to start but now getting the parcels out more efficiently, most overnight. There are still some delays on equipment which are not made in the UK. We haven’t been affected by Brexit as such but many of our suppliers have which is taking some time to get things. Pipework is one of those things and the amount of pipework and fittings we sell is crazy, an example is 500 metres of 1.5” pipe per month is sold here! It’s made in Europe so at the moment 2” pipe is a struggle, but we are getting it in regular but in drips and part orders. Hopefully the full supply chain will be sorted ASAP.
We do try and buy as much UK made product as we can.
Updates on all our Koi and installs are put up on our Youtube channel which we try and post on twice a week.
You can see some of the new Koi we have in and some of the deals we have had. Plus ponds and other equipment videos.

Pump Fed or Gravity Fed - Industry Information!#pondbuild #newpond #qualitynishikigoi
Gravity fed or pump fed systems? It is the first question many new pond builders ask themselves! I am sure many people watching this video will have had both systems but it still stands... Pump fed is still the biggest type of pond in the WORLD!
Check out the video for some inside industry info.
Watch this if designing a KOI pond!! Don't make the same mistakes...#koipond #koi #pondbuild
This is part one of a 2, or maybe 3 part series on flow rates mainly. Something I believe is the most important part of building a Koi Pond.
My pond at @Quality Nishikigoi was the first we ever built in the retail facility as it is now. It was done totally wrong. The pond is just too long to get all the debris out...which is down to flow rate and movement of water. While the pond still works and the water readings are all fine and the fish are healthy, it could be MUCH better. As a dealer 'Tank' it works fine, the turnover of Koi is that fast they wouldn't have time to grow. Koi would grow in this tank but would grow without body. We will end up re-building this pond at some stage. Part 2 coming soon!
So please subscribe to the channel for much more information.
Thanks guys and we hope to see you all soon.
Tim and Paul.
