In efforts to promote healthy koi management and success in the hobby, Taro Kodama, owner of Kodama Koi Farm, has been unveiling new articles in the Koi Info section of his website – https://www.kodamakoifarm.com/koi-information/
Mr. Kodama explained, “I want to help the community learn from my family’s 50+ years of experience and knowledge managing koi health. There is so much to learn in successful koi keeping. Without the proper preparation, you can waste money, lose koi, or even worse, lose your interest in the hobby.”
The Koi Information page continues to grow with more articles and videos. Most recently, the Benefits of Salt in Koi Pond article has been published, which is a great example of conflicting perspectives within the hobby, on the management of koi health. Each pond owner must create their own set of techniques and no pond will be managed in the same way. The information released is based on the Kodama methods used on the farm and retail locations.
To help you with Koi symptom diagnosis, Taro Kodama created this koi health and symptom diagnosis checklist, which is a one page document to reference for a quick diagnosis by the pond. The full article features a table with common koi diseases, treatments, symptoms and control methods.
“Safe handling of koi is priority #1 for the Kodama Team and we hope that sharing this valuable information will lead to the best lives for our koi fish after leaving our farm.” states Mr. Kodama who has spent his life raising Japanese Koi alongside his father, koi master, and founder of Kodama Koi Farm, Mamoru Kodama, to spread the positivity brought to the world by nishikigoi.
