Tony Pitham owns a koi business and writes articles that provide advice for fishkeepers.

Keith Holmes has 25 years' experience with aquatic and ornamental fish management and koi health. He has written many articles for fish hobby magazines and associations.

A complete and authoritative illustrated guide to caring for koi for optimum health and beauty.

Keeping koi is one of the pinnacles of the art of fish keeping. The 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. InManual of Koi Health, two internationally recognized koi professionals give practical advice on how to create a healthy environment for koi and how to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases.

The book is divided into four parts:

  • Part one addresses the all-important subject of disease prevention, which includes creating the optimal environment. A checklist outlines regular maintenance tasks to ensure water quality.
  • Part two covers the "essential skills" of koi keeping, including anatomy, biology and handling koi.
  • Part three is a comprehensive A-to-Z guide that covers diagnosis and treatment of commonly encountered koi disease.
  • Part four describes various methods to administer treatment to koi, such as medicinal baths and dips.

Manual of Koi Health is written specifically for koi keepers, whether they are novices with a single pond or serious koi enthusiasts deeply involved in breeding or exhibiting. The book is profusely illustrated with color photographs and illustrations that highlight the expert text, and step-by-step instructions provide easy-to-follow directions for a wide range of procedures. It is a vital reference for every koi keeper.
