(Amana,IA) There’s dust in the air at Kloubec Koi Farm as the family is in the process of digging new ponds to satisfy an increased demand for their butterfly and straight fin koi.
As explained here by Nick Kloubec, a portion of the ponds have a special purpose:
*“In consideration of recent successes, especially this year’s Baby Champion (at the Mid-Atlantic Koi Club’s 2009 Koi Show), we’ve decided to create several specialized mud-ponds to focus on our high-end, award winning bloodlines in order to increase production of the best koi we have to offer. The idea is to provide a healthy, American alternative that rivals import quality.“*
Also in expansion is the Kloubec quarantine facility (where fish are held a minimum of 2 weeks prior to shipping to guarantee optimum health). More tanks + more water = the best availability during peak season.
