The Koi Market Ltd, set up in January 2016 by Mr Danny Gallimore is building eight new vats for display purposes, which will open to visitors next spring.
The vats, which will be made from concrete and liner, will be home to upwards of 1,000 Koi, which will also be on sale. "Everything on the premises which is on display, will be for sale,” said Mr. Gallimore.
Danny has been into Koi-keeping for the past 30 years, getting his first pond at the age of 8 from his father Graham; who is naturally an integral part of the business with his years of Koi-keeping knowledge. “It really just evolved from keeping goldfish to keeping Koi,” said Danny when asked how he got into Koi-keeping.
Currently, The Koi Market Ltd has one growing-on-pond and four viewing vats, the new vats will be run on the nexus 320 filtration system by Evolution Aqua. Accessories and products by Evolution Aqua will also be on sale at the shop.
“I felt there was a gap in the market for better quality Koi at a more affordable price,” added Danny, who spent 18 years in the financial market but quit to pursue his passion this year. The Koi Market Ltd is a family run business who believe in creating a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere for Koi buyers and in sharing their passion and knowledge of Koi-keeping.
