Halloween Hump Day Koi Fix – The Ghost Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

What a perfect day to discuss the scariest of all Koi – The Ghost Koi!

The Ghost koi has gained some popularity in the last few years, but many “Koi people” still do not recognize them as a true koi! – they are refereed to as Ghost carp instead.

The “Ghost Koi” is a product of breeding a mirror carp with a metallic Ogon Koi. For this reason many Koi purists don’t consider them a true “Koi”…

They are very hardy fish and much less susceptible to diseases. They also grow extremely fast! Both of these traits make them a great first Koi!

Ghost Koi don’t have a lot of markings like other Koi so their beauty comes from their shining metallic scales! Their colors can vary from dark to cream to silver and even golden. The head is generally creamy and the body colors will widely vary depending on the parents color.

I guess what I’m saying is, even though they have a scary name, & the fact that it is Halloween – Don’t be wary of the Ghost Koi! They are really pretty cool 🙂

Enjoy your Koi! AND – HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Sunday Reflections…

The leaves are really starting to show now. We rode all over yesterday looking at the trees and enjoying the cool weather.

The Fall Color is looking gorgeous, get out and enjoy the beauty today.

Yesterday was the 300th. day of 2018… Not a huge milestone, but worthy of note. Time flies … Now Fall is in full swing & the color is right at peak – get out and enjoy the day with friends or family 😊

 

“There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.”
