Types of Koi

Koi are ornamental domesticated fish that are descended from the common carp or Cyprinus carpio. Koi were first bred for their colors around 1820 in a town called Ojiya.

Different koi varieties are distinguished by their scalation, patterning, and coloration.

Koi and goldfish are different in that they were bred from a different species of carp. Offsprings that result from breeding a koi with a goldfish are sterile.

Ideal pH Target : 6.7-7.4

Koi prefer a pH level around 6.7 - 7.4 . It is important to note that organic matters such as leaves from trees and runoffs from rain can alter the pH of the water in a koi pond.
