    Just 18 today, fish seem happy enough and to be honest with the new bio it's probably doing me a favour in terms of slowly increasing the food with the bacteria gradually maturing with it. Still shite tho!

    I was at 17 this morning, pretty shit for this time of the year. I’ve had to order more heating oil because the wife keeps putting the heating on.

    20.1 this afternoon - and about time only problem is with the short furry jinny green teeth around the walls, late afternoon pH is up to 8.5, (with calibrated Hanna meter) from 7.8 AM.

    They're chasing me asking for food every move I make

    At last the weather seems to have turned, at least for the next couple of weeks, if you believe the forecasts.
    Pond up to 20.7 today, and the fish are loving it. Long may it last.

    up to 21.2 today, warmer tomorrow with clear sun all day I wouldn't be surprised if I hit 23 altho need to do a water change. If I do it early enough it should be fine and still get maximum warmth from the sun, summer is finally here for a week at least!

    It has been a long time since I have stated this here on this thread.
    The ideal water temperature for KOI is around 25°C.
    If this water temperature is maintained for a certain period of time, the extreme feeding we recommend becomes possible.
    Rapidly growing KOI is a sign of good health.



    We are all able to more than double the size of TOSAI in one summer because we are able to obtain it at natural water temperatures.

    Since I started participating here, I have seen many KOIs over there that have secured those water temperatures and achieved rapid growth.

    heated and grew KOIs

    In the case of hobbyists much of it is heated during the winter months and Ricky from KWS makes use of it for his business.
    The meatiness from the shoulders to the back is a good indicator of whether or not they have achieved this, and it is easy to imagine how extreme the feeding has been at the optimum water temperature.

    In addition to those mentioned here, we met several other people who are trying to ensure optimal water temperatures by heating the water not only in the winter period, but rather in the summer.

    I put comments on them in this way:
    『Rather than forcing the food to be heated in winter and feeding it in an indigestible state, it would be more efficient to simply correct the unstable water temperature in the UK in midsummer to a uniform temperature of 25°C or higher, as in Japan, as this would not cost much in energy costs and the KOI itself would not need to be heated in winter once the body flesh reserves have been built up!』

    We can't help but hope that they will see a tangible and obvious difference during the autumn harveste time.
    We hope that the accumulation of those examples will change the habits there little by little.

    That's amazing!
    If that's the case, try to find out the frequency of the limit as we do in Japan.
    Is the limit five to six feedings every two and a half to three hours?
    Of course, the density of the KOI relative to the volume of water in the pond and the treatment capacity of the filtration tank
    (especially with bottom drains to quickly discharge solid droppings of the sinking type)
    As far as possible, try not to produce undigested stools or floating faeces that dissolve in water.
    The fine-tuning of it is done by deeply observing the swimming and behaviour of the KOI to find the optimal solution.
    Force the swimmer to swim with more dissolved oxygen by adjusting water flow and aeration.
    If you can keep it up for at least a week, you will soon see a difference in their shoulder width and appearance, unless they are of a very frail nature!
    Absolutely no netting or scooping during this period, of course! Get the most out of their wildness!
    This is the general scene of our time of year!
    I wonder if those things could be done there as well??

    Do you have any verified sources for this information?

    I have not kept koi for long enough (34 years) to fully understand the long term effects of rapid growth, but with Fancy Goldfish with much shorter life spans rapid growth in the early days correlated to health conditions later in life.

    The goldfish that were grown the fastest all died earlier than those that were grown slowly.
