Malcolm Green Visits Kangei Koi Club


Our guest speaker on 11th April was Malcolm Green, owner of Koi Water Garden Ltd in Graet Kimble, Buckinghamshire.

Malcolm delivered a very informative talk about koi and pond treatments that included some explanations of the differences between some traditional treatments and their modern, readily available counterparts. Especially interesting was Malcolm's view that some treatments are not only safe to use at the same time as salt, but are also more effective when used with it - a very useful tip!

Like several of our previous speakers, Malcolm highlighted the importance of knowing the volume of your pond to ensure any pond treatments are admimistered using the correct dose. He also mentioned that, if you don't already know the actual volume of your pond, it is possible to determine it very accurately by using salt and measuring the salinity. Details of how to do this can be found in our member's article "Do you really know the volume of your pond?"
