Although I own many Ogon koi, including the Platinum variety, most of my fish are a happy mix of colors, varieties, and sizes.
They are extremely easy to keep, provided of course that their water is in good condition, but the most attractive aspect of koi is the fact that theu very quickly learn to recognise their owner by sight, and their are few greater pleasures than having your koi recognise you among several other people at the pond's edge. My koi have taken to taking food pellets out of my hand, even if I hold out just one pellet between my fingers.
I love my fish, and I highly recommend koi keeping as a natural remedy to the stresses of daily living. The image with this review is not my own, since I was never any good at photography, but I am sure you will get the allure of koi from the image.
Koi are a sort of drug, one look, and you are hooked for life- but in the best possible way!
