    Quit feeding too much! You're beating me! I gotta start to feed mine the Izeki paste, been too busy to even mix up the recipe I got from Bob. I don't have any catfish but I have about 100 pounds of halibut in the freezer from my fishing expedition, I'll use that since halibuts are sooo much bigger than catfish, hehehehe

    BTW Duc, you got shade over that pond of yours?

    feeding too much? who, me? i wish it were true that i was feeding too much...it would mean that i was at home to do it...gotta get me a autofeeder or my koi will be skeletons during the travel i have coming up.

    Izeki paste? that'll put those shiros to some impressive growth till it gets cold down there in houston.

    shade? the only shade is when my shadow goes over the pond as i'm standing there feeding them and that is not much as i'm only feeding them early in the morning or late in the evenings.

    they are looking good, that's for sure. Once you get that auto feeder they will just take off.

    good luck

    Duc, the Drs are having a great sale on that auto feeder I've been using since '06. You looking at that one?
