    ok tewa, this is the lazy police. Step away from the experiment with your hands up! Your under arrest!

    (LOL)

    would be fun to know your water parameters in a little more detail. Your were feeding Momotaro food right! We're gonna have to keep you away from Mike Snaeden or your gonna be right off the deep end.

    I did like the #4 koi best for my tastes.

    I bet if you talked to Brian about an advert in KB, the judge might commute your sentence or at least lower your bail!

    hey Dick

    yes we should all blame it on mike. The tds of the water in the pond is 50ppm, Kh is around 25 to 30 mg/L, GH is around 9 to 15mg/L. The rest is probably sodium from the RO unit and dissolved organics. PH haven really tested but from my experience with the other pond should be around 7.1 to 7.2 max. i have around 4 to 5kg of bacteria house in 2 crates.

    yes and i have been feeding the momotaro all season koi food. Nah i think Brian will have more fun just executing me

    regards
