  1. Stevie Hops . . .

    Good question.

    Back in October John Russell posted on the IPPCA board:
    Mr. Mamoru Kodama personally approves and endorses each and every component manufactured by, and for, Russell Watergardens...

    Russ, Russ, Russ (PSKoi not RWG),

    I feel your pain, big guy! He's baaaaaaaack!

    The dude's got more lives than Felix the Cat, teflon armor which sticks and stones and logic can't penetrate,...
  3. Two tough questions . . .

    Can you get a boob job from a proctologist? Yeah. But why would you want to?

    Can you get a koi pond from Russell Water Gardens? So he says. But why would you want to?
  4. My final post on this thread (I hope) . . .

  5. Mr. Russell . . .

    I see that you're back with your slick merchandising mantra: Can't we all just get along, hold hands and sing Kum Ba Ya (while you'se guys help me improve my marketing plan)?

    Meet you in the...
  6. Mr. Russell . . .

    whoops, forgot to address this from your last:



    Sorry, we've no experience with the product. We've mature biofiltration on our pond and (at least here in SoCal) have not found the need. Knock...
  7. Mr. Russell . . .

    the question isn't whether (as you said here on KB) "Mr. Kodama knows there are multiple types of ponds," the question is whether Mr. Kodama knows (as you said on the IPPCA board) that "a koi pond is...
  8. Hey, Nancy . . .

    just thought you might be interested in seeing these recent posts by Mr. Russell from his IPPCA Board posts-- especially so since you just sent him a vendor packet for the ZNA SoCal show. :eek:

  9. MikeM . . .

    Your post has now brought us to the dark heart of the matter and I couldn't agree with you more.

    Mr. Russell posted: “I'm not RECOMMENDING a hybrid pond, water garden pond, or a koi pond. We...
  10. Brian . . .

    well said and well done. Thank you, Don
  11. For the record . . .

    Some koi are killed by accident. Some are killed by ignorance. Some are killed by apathy.

    But I would argue that in America, most are killed due to the greed of pond builders -- pond builders who...

    To use an analogy, Mr. Russell's approach can be likened to a pharmacist who will dispense whatever drugs his clients request -- no prescription required -- and if the drugs he sells harm or kill...
  13. Mr. Russell . . .

    You would appear to have missed this -- I'd posted it on the other thread. Please address these points relative to KOI PONDS. Thanks, Don


    please address the following points which we, as...
  14. Kent . . .

    True, but I'd guess the upside of that is when true koi pond builders like you have plenty of little makeovers to fill in the gaps between real jobs. It may not be fun wading into that stinky glarf,...
  15. Holding breath . . .

    (and waiting for aggressive marketing onslaught). :eek: Don
  16. Yes, Mr. Russell . . .

    please address the following points which we, as evolved koi keepers, would consider absolute minimums that any pond would have to meet prior to being considered a 'true' koi pond by any serious koi...

    The typical Russell watergarden consists of filterfalls at one end and a skimmer at the other end. The shallow pond in between contains rocks, gravel, plants on ledges and lacks an effective bottom...
