Overview

A comprehensive, illustrated and authoritative guide.

Keeping koi is one of the pinnacles of the fishkeeper's art. These magnificent and often expensive fish have inspired a fanatical following, with collectors prepared to devote a lot of time and resources to creating a flourishing koi pond.

One of the top priorities for koi keepers is coping with fish that become ill. Left untreated, many fish suffer and die.

Manual of Koi Health offers practical advice about disease diagnosis, prevention and treatment. The book is written by two experienced koi professionals and internationally recognized experts. It includes a complete listing of all common koi diseases and how to treat them.

Written for non-technical readers, it explains treatments for:

  • Parasites
  • Bacterial, fungal and viral infections
  • Ulcers, lesions and wounds
  • Stress conditions.

Preventative measures are also explained. Poor water quality is the most prevalent cause of disease in koi. Water testing and the best way to maintain healthy water conditions are covered in detail.

The book is profusely illustrated with color photographs, and step-by-step instructions provide easy-to-follow directions for a wide range of procedures such as how to handle, anaesthetize and take samples from koi.

Manual of Koi Health is a vital reference for every koi keeper.
