Today I got a 5-7 inch koi and I'm wondering how fast is average for it to grow per month?, I know that this depends on different factors but I'm just wondering under good, not excellent conditions how much should he grow per month and how much should he be by the end of the summer?.

As for adding fish and testing for parasite's and disease's. A Microscope, a Quarantine tank, and salt. That is how to keep it from your pond. My hospital tank is my tank for quarantining fish, treating fish, separating fish that have been beat up due to breeding and can become a nursery in about a half hour if needed. I also use it later in the season to keep new plants and make sure they are doing ok before adding them to the pond or trading them to my local dealer. So it serves many purposes and yes, I have found fish that looked 100% healthy and had them in the hospital tank and had to treat, SO glad I quarantined them as it was far easier/cheaper treating two or three small fish in a small area than 30 fish in a large pond!!!!

I deffenitally think they get stunted from going into smaller tanks as youngins for resale.
