"Koi Kichi" is a must book for any serious Koi enthusiast. It contains many areas of information not usually found in other books. Most importantly it has a lot of common sense answers based on 20 years of Koi experience.

The parasite treatments he describes have already saved enough of my Koi from death that I have recovered the cost of the book.
