Probably a pH of about 7 with moderate hardness is best. Most water in the US seems to be OK, so it's probably best NOT to adjust the pH or the hardness of the water. Here in our facilities the water is hard and the pH is usually about 7.8. We ship them in this water. Click here for a lot more information about aquarium water conditions. Aquarium Size: It is probably best to house these fish in at least a 30-gallon tank, but more is better.Keep at most one Koi per 3-gallon, when they're small. Largerkoi need up to 10-gallons per Koi.Huge Koi need even more water per fish.
