    Flounder's Dainichi Hotaru Sanke Growout

    It's been a couple of months since I got the jt sanke and since today is Father's Day & I'm free for a while I figure I post the info on my Dainichi growout sanke.

    She's been in the 800g qt since that time & the temp in the qt is ridiculously high at 88-90'F so I figure I'll move her into the main pond where the temp is a "cool" 83.



    First pic taken b/f she was shipped here from Japan as shown on the certificate.




    The video was taken today right b/f I moved her into the main pond w/ the big girls. She's now 14", not bad growth for 2 months in the qt. Let's see how she'll do in the main pond for the next few months.



    I feed the koi EAShow, Saki Hikari, Dainichi Koi Farm Growth (not the crappy Dainichi Koi food you get from Toyoma but the real thing) and HiSilk all mixed together while I eat Ramen noddle.

    Looks good so far Ryan, but I think you could got alot more growth if you would have put it in your main pond in the first place. At least the koi is still alive so your doing something right. Either way it's not going to help you out in any way, you'll still have to wear a "LOSER" t-shirt in the end.

    Ryan, Bill's koi is probably in Koi Heaven looking down and laughing because, Bill is wearing his X-Small "LOSER" t-shirt.

    Now she's on a 2 months fast with the rest of the big girls.
