How Does Water Temperature Affect KHV Disease?
The virus appears to have an incubation period of 14 days following the introduction of infected fish to naive fish (fish that have not been exposed before) (OATA, 2001; Ronen et al., 2003). However, incubation may be longer, indicating that appropriate temperature and possibly a second trigger may be necessary for outbreaks to occur. Mortality related to KHV, almost no reported occurrence of the disease at or above 86°F (30°C) (OATA, 2001; Goodwin, 2003)

Do not raise the koi's water temperature too fast.Bacteria and parasites can also grow more quickly in warm water. The koi fishes system takes time to adjust but the disease organisms do not. Raise the temperature from ambient at 3 - 5 degree intervals every 24 hours to 80 - 84 degrees Fahrenheit. Maintain a stable temperature with less than 2 degrees variable per day Treat with 0.3% salt and parasiticides or antibiotics during the adjustment period, and continue with medication if necessary until cure is affected. Maintain temp. for 4 - 6 weeks after cure, then slowly drop the temperature to match that of the pond water. This will ensure a stronger Koi and ease the fishes transition back to the pond.

One of the most difficult times for KOI HEALTH PROBLEMS is the period winter nears to spring.When the water warms the PATHOGENS MULTIPLY at a rate faster than the KOI immune system can defend against.This will likely lead to DISEASES,However if the pond was heated over the winter THIS RISK IS LESSENED.
  • Pond Heating: There are conditions that can throw off pond and aquaculture heaters
  • Pond Waterfalls are used for aeration and beauty,but they cool the water and work against the heating process.
  • Pond Water Depth a good designed koi pond should be at least three foot in depth,shallow large exposed surface area ponds are easily effected by wind chill factors and require larger heaters to maintain temperature.
  • Let us calculate what size Aquaculture Heater you need for your pond
Pond heating Considerations: First you must determine whether you want to de-ice or actually heat your pond to a specific temperature. Heating your pond to obtain a specific temperature can be a bit technical, so if your not sure about the heater sizing we recommend that you contact our pond heating specialists. The outside low temperature is the key to your kilowatt requirements and unfortunately it can vary. Your heater output kilowatts are calculated based on your low ambient temperature and if your geographical area drops far below that normal low temperature a safety factor should be included in the calculations.New heater technology is being developed by our engineers to provide Pond Heaters that are Energy Efficient and have Non-Stick surfaces. Our new heater line will provide heaters that are non igniting, and even if removed from liquid will not cause any kind of heat related combustion.
