Morning all Well its been three months since we brought home our test group from mud pond. It is clear that the fry that were subjected to the mudpond for the first three months of there lives developed far quicker size and color wise while the their tank raised siblings were healthy but not nearly as far along in development. The bugs mud and algae do make a difference. It is really hard to duplicate mother nature. Have some younger shots of koi and mud pond but my pic host is down right now. Am posting a link to short video of some of the guys taken yesterday. Both these vids are dedicated to Dick Benbow who was kind enough to answer a few questions for me a while back concerning this spawn. Thanx Dick, Kiefer
