Welcome to the 3rd edition of the "Nishikigoi, Koi Identification and Information".  This DVD holds 1.28 GB of information.  If you have available space on your computers hard drive you can download it to a file on your desktop.

It doesn't take very long after becoming interested in koi to find out there are many different koi varieties and even variations of the same variety within the koi family. It can be very confusing, even for someone who has been keeping koi for years, but especially for people who have recently developed an interest in koi.

Koi have Japanese names, and rightly so, since the Japanese did the work developing the different varieties. On this DVD I have included a glossary of the Japanese names of the varieties and a brief explanation of each one as well as many other words and terms used in the koi hobby. Once you learn what the names mean you will begin to understand why they were given those names. You will also be able to determine what class and variety a koi should be placed in by the characteristics of its color, skin type, pattern and type of, or lack of scales.

 

Sincerely,
