The fishes will be added in some days after Quarantine and Acclimating the Koi. We strictly recommend quarantining all new fish in a spare or temporary tank for a period of 2 to 3 weeks before introducing the same to the main Koi fish pond.
Unless proper quarantining is done the chances of infections are very high. This may sometimes lead to mortal fatalities also.
And always remember to add only A few fish at a time. The biological filtration was started using pond starter kit of API and test fishes were added. The water quality was checked regularly and was found satisfactory, all the water parameters of the water are in normal range.
The temperature readings are in between 22.5 to 24 deg C during night and day.
Adequate aeration is supplied to the pond using a high-pressure air compressor with an output of 120 LPH to ensure the oxygen content is always maintained at prime levels. Please check the water quality regularly to enable early detection of problems.
