About the Author: Koi-Care staff
I have been interested in fish for over 25 years. I have two degrees in marine science with a specialization in fish ecology and physiology (as well as a chemistry minor). Like many kids, I had a goldfish growing up but decades later took care of several koi ponds. Koi are such great pets and very accessible for many folks wanting to get into owning koi in a pond environment.
