    You add more and you're going into the "off white" zone... won't even be beige anymore!!!

    Grant, you crack me up! I think that you should call Matt to have him ship you another koi or two and share with all of us about their development. I, too, will take pixs of the koi in my study, keep track of their development, and post them on this form for all to learn and critique.

    One of NKF's Moving Beds . Larger then most of our ponds . I believe the pipes in the back ground are either 8" or 10" .

    Lam, I really like Mike's idea for you. It'll curb the cravings some, and give you a chance to learn.

    Lucky for me, I've got a 2500 gallon pond (lucky #3 pond in my journey) that's currently empty where I'll be putting that new sanke. Maybe I should give Matt a call before the fish is shipped and have him include 1 or 2 more that would be considered opposites of the one I've already bought... Interesting.

    Wow, 500 gallons per fish (UK gallons, so kinda cheating) and you're still struttin the beige...
    Impressive to say the least!

    Sweet!! Throw in the word "beige" somewhere and we've got our club t-shirts...

    Beige, the new brown...

    Troy,
    You have an extra shirt. It would be awesome to wear that shirt here in LA.
