Filters | Aqua UV Ultima II Bio-mechanical Filter

The Ultima II is specifically engineered to meet the environmental demands of fish ponds. The lightweight media is designed for very high flow rates.

The tublar Bio-Media has low head loss and a very high biofilm surface. The “Y” shape on the inside of the wings on the outside afford a protective surface under backwashing, and with our patented backwash system will keep the media from clogging. The same properties have been added to this media in three different sizes with random lengths and diameters to avoid stacking.

The Ultima II tublar bio-media offers the highest surface area for growth of beneficial bacteria. No other backwashable pressurized filter compares. Cleaning the filter is done by internal jets. The Ultima II is also the ideal filter for aquariums where very high flow rates are desired.

Aquatic Plants

Aquatic Plants

Acquatic Plants are Special Order Only

At the Koi Store we pride ourselves in the quality and selection of the Aquatic Plants that we sell. We will have available this season about 25 varieties of Hardy Water Lilies from miniature to large growing, in a variety of colours and shades from White, Pink, Reds, Peach, Yellow and Changeables. This season we will also have available a very, very, deep Burgundy colour which looks almost black. Also available are Tropical Water Lilies, day and evening bloomers in various colours, and the wonderful Lotus.

In addition we also sell a large variety of Marginal Pond Plants; Oxygenators, Submerged Pond Plants, and Floating Tropical Plants. Hardy Marginal Plants and Hardy Lilies will be available at the end of April or early May depending on the weather. Floating Tropical Plants would be available as soon as early May but must be protected from frost or cold temperatures. Tropical Lilies, Lotus, and Tropical Marginal Plants will be available mid-June, again depending on the weather.

For a water garden to function well during the summer a combination of aquatic plants is a must. 50% to 60% of the pond surface should be covered with Water Lilies and/or Floating Plants. We recommend a ratio of 7:3 in favour of hardy plant material. Keep in mind however that the Tropical Pond Plants have the most showy flowers, and can bloom all Summer, unlike most of the Hardy Aquatic Plants.

Learn About Our Koi

Within the hobby of Koi Keeping, there exists the enigma that is “Japanese Koi.” If you have asked yourself the question, “What is the difference between a Japanese Koi and Koi from other countries?” or “How do I asses the quality of a Koi” or some similar question with regards to this topic, then you need to come visit us at “The Koi Store”.
We offer a large selection of hand-picked koi, purchased directly from breeders in Japan and not from dealers or trans-shippers. These Breeders are well-reputed in the koi world and do not breed koi just for the export market.
During our yearly buying trips to Japan, we carefully select koi based on their attributes and future At “The Koi Store’’ we offer many varieties of affordable, quality koi which are hard to find in Canada.
This is ideal for the hobbyist looking to improve their collection. Our prices for koi are based on important factors, such as overall quality, breeding and future potential. Remember, with regards to koi and their quality, “Beauty is not Skin Deep” but rather, their “BEAUTY IS
DEEP IN THE SKIN. Improvement of one’s eye to pick the koi that is the ‘Diamond in the Rough’ is the real challenge, and development of a koi to its full potential is truly the test of a koi keeper’s skill. At ‘The Koi Store’ we can help you hone the skills needed to be able to select these ‘gems.’ If you are up for the challenge of koi keeping and ready for a change, then email or visit us for more
