    That pond rebuild is looking good Michael. How many chambers/compartments is this long throw type of filtration going to have? Also, is it going to be filled mainly w/ J-mats or will there be other types of media in there? Did Frank M. & company build your pond, too?! Keep the pixs coming!!!!!

    Nancy,
    I think Frank can easily afford a few hermes kelly and birkin bags.

    Hey Michael; who let Rookie Koi Guy in to your place?

    Don't let him give you any suggestions on what should be done.

    It may just lead you.. say.. to possibly win Grand Champion (non-gosanke) in a koi show.

    The project looks to be going "most excellent"

    Me bad... Nice eye for fish (which I do not seem to have; ie:your avatar ).

    Thank you for giving in to his request (whining ). He sure was walking on air after hearing the judges decision. He has a good friend in you. Looking forward to seeing the finished project.

    Today they finished the spillway, and the biological chamber (long throw filtration). Tomorrow they will finish the settlement chamber, fasten the transfer port, finish the drainage. more photos to come.

    I figured that the fish might not get to the size that I want. By saying that JUMBO. And since he was beggin me to sell it to him I finally obliged. I'm very very proud of Tom for his accomplishment in that said show. We felt like we we're at the show when I heARD THE NEWS.
