Today I’ve been working around the Koi houses preparing some of the growing ponds for their new inhabitants.
One of the ponds that was being emptied was home to these truly stunning Mizuho Ogon and Kin Matsuba bred by Hirasawa (Marusei). I shot a quick video on my phone for you to simply enjoy them at close quarters just as I did.
Mizuho Ogon isn’t a variety that everybody is familiar with but a good example such as these will have a big impact on any Koi collection. They certainly know how to grow and can achieve a considerable size.
