THIS BOOK WAS VERY HELPFUL IN SHOWING HOW TO SET UP AND TAKE CARE OF SEVERAL KOI FISH ENVIRONMENTS AS WELL AS HOW TO SELECT KOI. LOTS OF PAGES WITH COLORFUL PRINTS OF FISH...SHOWS HOW TO IDENTIFY, SELECT, BREED, AND MAINTAIN KOI..THIS IS THE BEST KOI CARE BOOK IVE SEEN!! GREAT BOOK FOR AN INCREDIBLE PRICE...MY 8 YR OLD SON EVEN READS IT AND TRYS TO IDENTIFY KOI IN THE PET STORE.VERY COOL!!
This book is a treasure trove of information, especially for a beginer. The information is easy to understand and the book contains many detailed pictures to give you a visual of the written information. It covers different pond set ups with photos and sketches, different filtration systems with varying costs, pumps and information on maintaining water quality. The pictures and written information describing each type of Koi and color patterns are fantastic. It is a great guide for finding the right kind of Koi to meet the desires of the very motivated up-and-coming Koi collector and the casual Koi keeper.This book helps you to get an idea of how much you may want to spend on your fish, your pond and your filtration system. It would make a great addition to any Koi keeper's library, if for nothing else, to help the Non-Koi keeping population to understand one's enthusiasm for these beautiful, trainable and entertaining fish.
This Koi book is and was the only book which says it all, what wonderful color pictures to understand what the person in the book was talking about, if there is anything I didn't like it would be that I would that the book was not long enough, I could have read more.
Very detailed book, must have for any koi enthusiast it explains everything from water quality to types with nice coloured pictures to help in explanation.. Highly recommended!
