Pond Quality Premium Quality Select Premium Quality Grades New Koi Care

After your Koi arrive at the airport, DO NOT OPEN THE PLASTIC BAG! The bag contains compressed oxygen. As soon as you open the bag the Koi will start suffering from lack of oxygen.

Take your Koi to your quarantine tank or pond as soon as possible. Remember, your pond's temperature, pH, hardness, salinity, etc. may be very different from the water the Koi are shipped in. The chlorine level in your pond must be zero.

Float the bag for about 1/2 hour to equilibrate the temperature, then open the bag. As soon as you open it add pond water to the bag, about a quarter to half of the bags volume. In other words, after you add the pond water the bag should contain 25-50% more water. Then in about 10 minutes, if the Koi do not look distressed, add 50% more.

bullet(If they start stressing from lack of oxygen start agitating the water by scooping it up and re-pouring it in, or add more pond water to the bag, or if neither of these steps help start adding them immediately to your pond).

After several additions of pond water start adding your Koi to your pond. It is always a good practice to use your hands or a net. Do not pour the shipping water into your pond.

Remember, when Koi are in a new environment they often jump out. So either cover them or keep a careful watch over them.
