    I'm feeding them 6x/day and changing about 10,000 g of water each week, which is a little over 75%.
    they are beating the dainichi tosai in growth? i hope you don't mean the 2 special ones? if so, they would be 14 inches! good luck catching those guys in your pond! we want to see pictures!

    nice. now can you do some math to extrapolate how big each koi is given its relative distance to the camera and taking into account the distortion from the water and body angle? and i just want the omosako growout shiro data, not the rowley bred ones nor the dainichi shiro.

    Stupid stupid koi

    A week ago I found one of the grow out koi all dried up next to the bamboo. This was the best one too, the one with the most sumi & least likely to go shiromuji.

    Stupid koi, thinking life would be better out of the pond!!!

    did it think that the water was better on the other side of the pond wall? 12K and that wasn't enough?

    sorry about the loss.

    Here they are!

    I had 3, of course the BEST one jumped out so these are the 2 left.

    Female almost 16 inches.







    Male, 14 inches!!! Almost a shiromuji, this one is going into Bill's new ginormous pond.
