This book is will be most useful to someone who is thinking about putting in a pond and getting some Koi. If you already have a pond and are thinking about adding Koi look for another book. Much of this one is taken up by the basics of pond installation, aquatic plants etc. These topics are related to Koi keeping but are not what you may be looking for in a book about Koi.Was this review helpful?
