WHY DO KOI GROW SO FAST IN A MUD POND? (NATURAL POND)


What’s up guys and welcome back to a brand new episode here at The Koi Partner. Last october I made a number of episodes about Jumbo Koi who came from the Mud Pond. You can watch these episodes If you click on the link at the end of this video that already appear in the right upper corner right now. So in this episode I explain why koi grows so fast in a natural Mud Pond. I show you different Footage of koi breeders how they do it in Japan Before a koi can reach this size they stay in the Mud Pond for some seasons So let’s start at the beginning in the summer the temperatures in Niigata rise very high while in the winter huge amounts of snowfall. An ideal combination for growing koi, let me explain why.. It is now mid-february and the breeders are selling their one-year-old koi to their customers from all around the world. During this time of the year the breeders can do little work outside In winter up to 4 meters of snow can fall in this area Niigata also has one of the most popular ski areas in Japan. Inside the work continues and breeders slowly prepare for the new koi season. During the months of March and April the metres of snow that has fallen into the empty mud ponds are slowly melting During the spring the mud ponds filled with fresh and ice-cold meltwater. When the Sun warms of the water the breeders can start preparing for the first koi in their mud ponds First their breeders are releasing the smallest koi and after that they release the larger ones There can sometimes be weeks or even months in between.. The reason? Smaller fish can do more against the temperature fluctuations during the first spring months then of course the bigger koi During the hot summer months the fish grow very fast, in addition to feeding koi food.. the Koi make optimal use of the many natural food sources such as shrimps, frogs and other high-protein foods.. But there’s another reason why this koi grows so fast in a natural mud pond.. Niigata prefecture is known for its rich clay soils.. the large presence of minerals and vitamins ensure that the koi can develop optimally. A supply of fresh water and you have created the ideal growing environment for a fish.. It is now October, forever dealer and breeder exciting times. The fish that we’re allowed to grow in the mud pond have grown enormously. Depending on their age, the younger the fish are the more the grow they get. When the Koi gets older and they grow at a slower pace from all around the world dealers and hobbyists came to see which results their fish and those of the breeders have achieved. A whole happening where it is quite a party to see the Koi of very high quality at their very very best. After the nets against predators and bears and according to its removed starts catching the fish, a precise job.. Where a mistake produces the same extra work. time that the breeders Desperately needs during the harvest season. When all the fish are caught they go to the greenhouses. Here all the fish are checked for the length quality and health. The fish are also offered here for sale, if they are not sold they will continue swimming in the winter.. Waiting for a new potential owner.

  3. Very nice video . I have a few koi in my garden pond of Aprox 10000 liters. My koi growing in body bulk (body size) and less in length . Any idea why

  4. This kind of solves what I had been wondering! The largest koi I have seen are housed in muddy and turbid lakes or ponds. Those that I have encountered in clear ponds seems to be smallish in appearance.

  5. Serious question. why would you choose to have your Koi grow up here? instead of buying young Koi and having them grow in size at your own place?

  6. Feeding my koi jelly bellies seems to do the trick! Great coloring! Also crossbreeding my KOI with rare sequins to give them that extra gin rin kapow!!

  10. Hi, I have a 4000gal pond and am currently using 3 55gal drums for my filter system. The first drum has flocor media, the second has K1 (both for machanical filtration), the third has K1 and K1 micro for biological filtration with air rotation. It’s time to upgrade to a more efficient system. What system would you recommend. If you could suggest an high end and a medium range that would be most appreciated
