Metallic Hikari Koi Carp Assorted 4-5"
Mixed metallic koi, suitable for outdoor ponds. Hikari koi are koi fish in the Hikarimuji class (Hikari – “shiny”; Muji – “one”). This listing is a mixture of colours, including some reds/orange, solid colours and patterned varieties. A random selection will be supplied similar to as pictured. Over-wintered outdoors, our Hikari Koi can tolerate low temperatures. For filtered ponds only.
Koi can grow rather large and would benefit from a larger garden pond with good filtration. Do not house with pond plants, as they have a tendency to move and damage them.
