    Koi Lovers
    These are some of the koi I've bred this season at home in a 1000 litre setup.

    Not the usual home-breds. Nearly everyone would enjoy raising up at least one of those.

    One thing that has always stood out with your tosai, Quinton, is how full-bodied they are. This shows on the two Showa at the beginning of the video and the first Shiro Utsuri. To obtain such fullness without bulging bellies is an accomplishment. And, you did this in just 1,000 litres? ....Can you describe the set up? I'm guessing you must be using a flow-thru design??

    I think it should read 10,000 liters. See Koiphen.
