Can Koi Live in Muddy Water?

Yes they can, as long as the water quality stays good.  The water should have no Ammonia and plenty of dissolved oxygen.

In Japan, the Koi are grown in mud ponds.  The ponds are generally one to five acres in size and are lined with bentonite clay.  The Koi are placed in the ponds in the spring and, depending on their size, may going through two or three culling cycles in the summer.  In the fall, the Koi are harvested and brought to the greenhouses for sale.
