If you want to have a really attractive feature in your garden, then why not build a Koi fish pond? These beautiful fish make wonderful pets and are becoming one of the most popular pond fish to keep because they have such ornamental quality.

When it comes to looking after your Koi fish pond, before you embark on looking after these fantastic creatures, you should always do some research before purchasing your fish. This is because, as with any fish Koi need special requirements in order to thrive and survive and so it is important that you know as much as you can about these fish before starting your fish pond. One of the most important aspects that you should consider when it comes to your Koi fish pond is the number of Koi fish you are planning to keep in your pond.

It also means that if you keep your Koi fish in a small pond which doesn’t have enough room for your fish to live then it will mean that you will find it difficult to maintain the fish pond.
