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.
