Showa High Quality Koi from Asia feature a jet black base color ("sumi") with red and white accents that form a woven pattern. Showa displaying more white than black are called "Kindai," which translates to "Modern Showa." Showa Koi, along with Kohaku and Sanke Koi, form the "Gosanke," or "The Three Families." In the United States, the "Gosanke" is often referred to as "The Big Three." The Showa Koi we are offering are rated by breeders as AAA Grade Select - the highest rating these fish can receive. They are produced by some of the best brood stock in Asia. While Showa Koi can live longer than 200 years, they typically live 25 to 35 years. These high-quality Japanese Strain Koi are a product of years of professional breeding, and will turn your pond into a showcase of champions. Showa Koi are a must for the avid hobbyist.

The ideal setup for Showa Koi is a 1000+ gallon pond with a fine gravel substrate, rocks, and hardy plants. Because these Koi savor plant roots and will dig to get to them, be sure to place large rocks around the base of plants to protect them. You will also need to provide adequate filtration to maintain proper water conditions.

Males are easily recognized by their concave anal section and occasionally by breeding spots on the head. Spawning may result in as many as 1,000 eggs, with fry emerging in approximately 4 to 7 days, depending on the water temperature. Feed fry small live foods or frozen daphnia for the first 3 to 4 weeks. At that time, gradually change their diet to crushed flake and pellet foods. Their color will emerge in about 3 to 12 weeks.

Feed Showa Koi a quality pellet or flake food.

Approximate Purchase Size: Medium: 4" to 6"; Large: 8" to 10"
