    Healthy, robust koi are always a pleasure. Your Kikisui is highly photogenic.

    I was thinking the same thing about the Kikisui.
    It looks like you have a happy, healthy family going there. Tell us a little more about your pond. It looks like you have a well thought out system and the water looks nice.

    Steve, what kind of koi is this one. Tancho Asagi?

    Do you have a better image of it?

    thanks for the comments

    hi i believe it is a tancho asagi

    the pond is run from a airated bottom drain to sieve a sequence 16000 to large blue bead which holds approx 120kg of beads which then returns over the homemade shower

    the skimmer is fed using 4 inch pipe to another sieve then a sequence 16000 then through the small grey bead which also returns over the shower

    also from the skimmer i have another pump aquamax 15000 which runs through my 110 watt uv which also then returns over the shower

    the shower is also fed in summer from the veg filter via a 2 inch bottom drain using a 20000 lph pump

    so overall going over the shower in summer 4 different feeds which in winter i can turn the uv pump and the veg filter pumps off

    this leaves me the 2 returns from the beads
    all the water returns to the veg filter and over a weir plate to the pond

    here is a couple more pictures of veg filter and shower

    the green shower is now replaced by the black home made shower

    im still finishing of the pond there is a pergola to go up yet

    I'm betting Dick B will be chiming in soon once he spots those nice looking Bonsai
    Very good filtration you've got set up there. One question about the veggie filter if you don't mind. Do you have a bottom drain set up on it? Some people have used a veggie/bog for nitrate uptake but had problems with accumulated mulm if they don't have a bd/cleanout.

    hi yes there is a 2 inch tommy drain on the veg filter which i can attatch extra filtration on if needed but at the moment i just run a pump from it straight over the shower or directly into the pond

    the pond is 5500 uk gallons

    Asagi have Red on the body , right ? Then it can't be a Tancho Asagi . My guess (from that photo) would be Tancho Kujaku .
