    who you calling La Me?

    here are some pics and updates from today

    water temps: 84.9F
    length: 15"
    feed: EA show 100% (was feeding a mix of EA Show/Tomigai)
    pH: 7.8
    ammonia, nitrite, nitrate: 0
    water changes: 10-15% every 2-3 days
    stocking density: 13 koi (need to find homes for 2 males)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37Yk-Ff652k

    some issues on the left shoulder with beni breaking up and it looks thin.

    not as thick as the others posted so far but let's give her a chance when it gets cooler in the fall to bulk up.

    some issues on the head that i treated with an ointment. will bowl her again next week to check on her progress.

    so does this take me off the lame list?

    OK, but it's only because of the running commentary on the video. That was great.

    you need to talk to your girl, she is looking a little skinny to be from Texas.

    Here's the direct link Duc:



    Use the YT tag and the characters after the = sign.

    You've done a great job growing her, once the sumi in the tail come up she should be more balanced.

    Is that a water bug swimming with the sanke???


    I should post a vid of mine.
