    Ok.. finally am able to post on this thread. had the hardest time... it kept timing out...

    Lost koi # 107, my favorite of the two we got about month after we received it. It came down with dropsy and ulcers about 3 weeks after receiving them. Never did find any parasites on it tho. Many injections of antibiotics, salt baths and in water, warm temps, etc etc, all to no avail. Put her down on 3/12/08.

    Oh yeah..I suck....

    Oh no! My favorite koi in the competition! I am so sorry Junichi. Do you have any idea of what happened to them? They look like they were putting on some nice growth for you before they expired. What a shame....

    "unfortunates" posted are #s 20, 11, 77, 61, 37, 140, 34, 40, 76, 13, 107, 143, 166, t182 and 162


    thought I'd roll this list to the end of he thread as of today, I think that is all of them.
    I know there are folks keeping up with that certain shiro they wanted to watch.
    I cringe every time someone post a loss.

    funny you should ask that. My local club is also doing a growout. Many noobs and water gardeners in the club. We all got the fish in April and I think over half are dead now.
