If you’re a monthly magazine subscriber and are on Facebook then why not join our exclusive Subscribers Club!
It’s been set up to provide a shared space to discuss your Koi, ask the Koi Talk team for advice, to discuss magazine articles, make suggestions for future articles, and to give you a behind the scenes insight to what else we’ve got planned!
The Koi season is very much in full swing and many hobbyists will be taking advantage of the natural increase in temperatures, and pushing the growth of their Koi. For veterans of the hobby, you will be aware of the impact on water quality when you increase feeding, but for those new to the hobby, or not so experienced with growing Koi, pay attention to our upcoming two-part Beginner’s Corner series on growing your Koi, starting in issue 14 of Koi Talk.
Issue 14 is due to arrive with subscribers from 11 June onwards. If you’re a magazine subscriber look out for it landing in your letterbox! If you’re not yet a subscriber check out our Koi Talk Back Issues catalogue, they’re all available to buy individually, and issue 14 will be added shortly.
Koi Talk Podcasts are here and take over from episodes 1-5 of our Sofa Chats! They’re a great way to listen to our advice – either in the car as many of our listeners do, or if you’re relaxing at home or in the garden, next to your pond. All of our Podcasts are available on a number of different platforms, including Spotify, Apple, Google and Amazon Music.
If you prefer to watch rather than listen we also film every single one of our Koi Talk Podcasts. They are available on on our YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/koitalkmagazine
Coming to the end of the year we are in a reflective mood, looking back at the journey we have taken in 2021 since launching the magazine. We have certainly come a long way in just a few editions, and we wanted to say a heartfelt thank you for the continued support of our readers.
Your feedback has been overwhelming at times and it is fantastic to hear that we are genuinely helping hobbyists across the UK, and more importantly, saving the suffering of Koi up and down the country. This is a profound feeling, and we are proud to be a part of it!
We have spoken about winter preparation in previous issues of the magazine, and with much of the north seeing snow in recent weeks, and the rest of the country seeing near-zero temperatures, it is important not to become complacent. There’s always a lot going on over the Christmas period but don’t forget your watery friends in the garden, they still require some attention and oversight of their environment.
Over the Christmas holiday period we may take a little longer than usual to reply to any messages and post out any back issue orders, but rest assured that we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of the Koi Talk team.
In our latest video Chris Wall and Ricky Stoddart, founders of Koi Talk magazine, sit down for an in-depth, unscripted conversation to discuss all things Koi and to set straight a few myths from the industry.
As well as founding Koi Talk magazine, Ricky is also the Managing Director of Koi Wholesale, the UK’s leading wholesaler of quality Japanese Koi which celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year. With his unique position, Ricky shares his honest thoughts on a number of topics including the price of Koi, the difference between male and female Koi, and his opinions on Koi food to name just a few of the topics discussed.
This feature-length video is over an hour and a half long. Pull up a comfy chair, sit back and relax, and listen in to Chris and Ricky’s conversation to experience a level of Koi knowledge that you’re not going to hear anywhere else.
Then why not treat them to a Christmas present they’ll love with our multipack of issues 1-6 of Koi Talk magazine, the UK’s only monthly, printed magazine, dedicated to Koi.
