Champion Koi Bowl

**Koi Acres introduces a new vessel for viewing Koi, the Champion Koi Bowl.**

Scandia, MN – Koi enthusiasts all over the US interact with their fish on a regular basis. Some only move their Koi when the seasons change, others bring their fish to shows all over the country. At the Koi shows, the fish are placed into large viewing bowls, which are usually supplied by the owner, where they are judged on body conformation, color and even personality. Most collectors use whatever plastic or fiberglass tub they can get their hands on. Very often, the tubs that the hobbyists use will have blisters or weld lines, which can damage the fish. “Some Koi are worth a lot of money,” said Mike Swanson, owner of Koi Acres. “Others have a huge amount of sentimental value. Damage from handling equipment is unacceptable.”

The owners of Koi Acres decided to have their own bowl manufactured after scrutinizing several options that were out on the market. Since they deal with the manufacturer directly, they have plenty of control over the fabrication quality and the price. The Champion Koi Bowl is made from polyethylene plastic and has a completely smooth interior surface. The material is 100% fish-safe and completely inert.

Mike Swanson had this to say, “Every Koi enthusiast deserves top of the line equipment for handling their fish. If these bowls can withstand the rigors of our Koi farm, they most certainly will meet and exceed the expectations of the hobbyists.”
