Fishes for Ponds
For most Chinese clients, their home garden ponds with Japanese kois are for fengshui purpose to avoid bad luck into their homes. A genuine fish enthusiast has nothing to talk about except his fish.
We are none of the above but we do introduce fishes into our pond projects for them to serve and to function for the right purpose. They are meant to control the population of mosquitoes larvae for example, and also to consume the algae in the pond.
We do practice and promote home aquaculture, growing fish with kitchen left-overs and re-cycle food.
Obviously, native fishes are the better choice and we maintain like what I used to say that, "Japanese kois are for Japanese."
This page will introduce you to fishes that are recommded for ponds as food fish as well as to keep them as decorative fishes.
