Koi fish is a hugely popular addition to any pond, across the world. We love building koi ponds, and we are a specialist at it! We can cater for any build or design; please give us a call to book an appointment with Michael Wheat himself to discuss you koi pond needs.
What are Koi Fish?
Despite contrary belief, koi originally have a Chinese origin. Koi is a food source before the Japanese bred them for their aesthetic appeal from the mid-1800s.
Koi varieties are distinguished by colouration, patterning, and scale variation.
In Japan, the most popular variety of koi is the Kohaku, a red and white koi. In the United States, the most popular variants are the Kohaku, the Taisho Sanke, and the Showa Sanke. (The Taisho Sanka and the Showa Sanka are both red, white, and black.)
