    Nice Update

    Hey Jeff,

    Nice update, and so FAST! I would be interested in knowing the difference between the lens on your camera and Shawn's. It seems that the photo from Shawns camera was more crisp making the white really POP!

    I can't wait to get my fish! Keep us posted.

    Respectfully,

    The Pond Digger

    Nice Touch

    BTW that was a nice touch posting the pics you DIDN'T end up with so you can be sure to follow each one of them. I just might do the same, you trend setter!

    It was the light. Yesterday was rainy and dark, so I used a worklight. All the pictures turned out very orange because of it. In the future I will remember to take the pictures on a sunny day.

    At Mystic, seeing tanks of 50 or so of them at a time, the whites and the quality of them was even better than I expected.

    Nice selection, Jeff, and I still think that 150 is the sweetest fish. *S* I had been wondering how much they had changed since they arrived at Mystic. I see some sumi coming up and some going down in your fish. Very interesting stuff!

    By any chance did you get a peek at Mikado? Yah, shoor... *LOL* All that blinding shiro and sumi boiling around in the tanks.... Glad you got yours home. What kind of QT system do you have for them? Is it inside, outside, big, small...? Have a pic of them in their new digs?

    Marie--exactly! Sumi came up on t190 and went down on #79, so the long journey begins. They are so much fun to watch over time--whereas say with a kohaku you're just biting your nails waiting for it to fall apart.

    I didn't see Mikado (#85) though I did briefly recognize these--t203, t200, t197, t194, t192, t191, t178, 126, 98, 56. All of them near the average size and looking great. Shawn has them looking very healthy.

    Oh--about Qt, this is a new pond that is almost empty. Plus I have 2 larger fish in my Qt right now. So they went straight into the pond where they will reside. Big Qt. Everything will be fine.

    Jim--Thanks! They are bunking with a handful of baby chagoi, so already will nibble your fingers. I promise to do my best with our 150.

    Jeff, I just love your greenhouse. That's exactly what I want to build here to overwinter koi once I have my mudponds in. I'd love to see more pics of the layout. Is the new pond you have your Shiros in inside the greenhouse?
