    Well I guess we all know who's at the front of the line for "fastest growth"... DAYUM!!!
    That's a lot of size you've put on them, and massive bulk too.
    Tell us a little more about your feeding regimen, pond, etc...
    Much to learn from everyone's Koi on the contest, that's for sure.

    Thank you papabear. I feed them 4 times daily, twice by hand and twice by auto feeder. using Hikari staple, Hikari gold, and ea one. I plan to change thier food ,hope to bring out the white in them.
    Believe it or not they are growing in a 55 gals aquaruim. But I do a 50% water change, twice a week. Right now they are over crowed. I make plan to move them out to thier new home soon.
