    David Soon and The MousKoiteers

    Hey Guys,

    Just for cleanliness, I thought we could start a thread here where we could list all the info for our koi and compare our results over time.

    I'm going to grab Brother David's info and post it then I'll put mine up. Hopefully brother Vic and Larry will do the same.

    Grant, Your "Growing Season" is really going to hurt you. Your up against David and that Larry guy from OK who enjoys a much longer Season.

    I'm pulling for you, Increase those water changes and "Grow Baby Grow" !!!

    Blessed Sunday Brother Grant

    I actually felt a little intimidated by the majestic bodyline and beni quality of brother Larry's Kohaku , as well as the longish and beautiful shiroji Kohaku that comes with the tricky beni pattern which is yours . I have not seen the clear video of Brother's Victor Kohaku as yet .....

    I promise .... I will still be able to live up to the challenge ... Will give you a good run as well !!!!

    Have a Blessed Palm Sunday .
