    Gosh, I must aplogise, I must have been in a terrible mood when I wrote the above -

    re:I must have been in a terrible 'funk' when I wrote the above.


    Thus, I need to apologise for what appears (as I have now re-read what I wrote - to your turning off of your pumps; as you have choosen to do...

    Indeed, you've done a wonderful job in the construction of your pond and my response was totally 'out of order'.

    Obviously, in the Cayman Islands I am dealing with a hot and year round' tropical environment which requires a signficant amount of additional air to keep the oxygen levels of my pond water high.

    Whilst, you are not. Thus, I had no need to write such a misleading and inappropriate statement about your pond and your fish husbandry.

    Please accept my apology!

    I note also from the above authors on clay that "Sodium bentonite is the more costly and higher grade product used for commercial applications where leak sealing is a priority. it will also cleanse your koi's colon in a safe way, improving both coloration and health."

    Thus, I wonder, whether the clay which I have been using these past years (which I have been purchasing) from Gene Winston at Koi Village is sodium bentonite or calcium? And, does any one know - which it is that he sells?

    And, does anyone who also have added to the above thread about clay know the e.address where I can find a reliable source (company) within the USA who would both bag and ship a one hundred pound bag of the best grade SODIUM BENTONITE to my freight forwarder in Miami?

    With my respects (and, my humble apology) ~
