    Great Effort Brother Vic

    I have to admire you for putting in so much effort in providing the best food for your kois . Brother Grant is using Dainichi Original , product of FD Food , for the first time , while I'm using FD Primo Plus ( 50 pct ) and FD Color Up ( 50 pct ) throughout for my mouskiteer ... . I'm not sure what brother Larry feeds so far , but believe to be some krills and fresh fruit ?? Will see the developement of these 4 fishes this November / December when you guys are ready to pull them in for winter ..

    Can't wait to see the 4 developement ..

    David

    I don't want to start counting my chickens before they hatch but visually it seems to me that Eri is growing quite well...

    Crossing my fingers that my greenhouse (sorta... ) coupled with the fantastic food David gave me is going to have me up front.

    I feel terrible for Brother Larry and only wish he was still alongside us growing these wonderful fish. I know that he would be giving us all a run for the money if not for his most unfortunate incident.

    Good luck Brother Victor and David. And still thinking of Brother Larry often as I'm feeding Eri.

    Best,

    Grant

    Brother Grant,

    Very nice to hear that Eri is growing well. As we could see from brother David's videos, his Muskoiteer Kohaku is awesomely well too. That leaves my little baby behind hehehe... let me beef her up a bit.

    I hope brother Larry is doing well too. Is he on vacation or something?

    Cheers,
    Vic.

    Wow! I was reading this thread and seen Grant post (sorry about Larry's unfortunate incident).
    I have read this forum for average 2 hours a day for the last 3 months. I knew right away who "Larry" was. I first thought something had happen to him. So I started searching. Finally found his thread about his fish. I spent the next 2 hours reading all the great comments from all the koi hobbiest from this forum.
    Glad to hear it wasn't him, but WOW very sad story he lost all his fish overnight due to lack of oxygen.
    Sorry guys, I'm gonna have to root for Grant to win this one! He has helped me DRAMTICALLY in my pond build! GO GRANT! haha
    And goodluck to you others!

    Thanks Mike for supporting our little GO. Looks like that Brother David and i need to work on recruiting some fans like American idols to support our Kohaku babies.

    Oh I'm worried Brother David. Trust me. While my pond is very good for my koi, I don't have the water quality that you do, and I certainly don't have the feeding schedule either. I'm trying to decide if I want to take Eri to my club's koi show this Sept. 10th. I don't want to hinder her growth but I'd really like to share her with the rest of my club... Decisions decisions....

    Hey Mike,

    The grow out will be just an online thing here at Bito. We're all just looking for bragging rights and more importantly an education on koi development. We all have similar koi, and we're all feeding similar food. Genetics are still going to play a large role in the results but we'll be able to compare husbandry practices and the differences that they have made between the koi involved. It will be interesting because we all live in very different climates which in turn provide very different growing opportunities. I have a more 4 season approach to growing koi in that there is a long fasting period in winter so I would expect my kohaku to be smaller than the rest, but I also think mine might have the best beni due to less growth? No way to know for sure but it will be fun and educational.

    Next year Brother David and some of his friends from his side of the world are planning on attending the Northern California show and I'm planning on bringing Eri with me to show so that he can see her again. So it's on me to do the best I can with her!

    Uhmm Victor??

    We'd better get going on Oyster Cookies and cheeseburgers (worked for me to bulk up)

    Awesome video Brother David. I won't be around the computer for a while, I'm going to go feed Eri around the clock. Does anyone know where I can purchase steroids for koi?
