    I love the progress, but damn I hate our hard water here in Northern California...I am sure Dick will be glad to see your Shusui....

    Talking

    Water softener all the way!!!

    Works great for me.

    Ph is also solid at 7.6

    I couldn never get Ph to be lower than 8.

    After 3 months of using soft water, my Ph is now 7.6 or 7.5.

    This's not supposed to happen according to all the experts here, but for some reason it did. (I am Not complaining )

    "ugly shiro" is growing, getting a little better.....

    Well, maybe Tom C. will be right after all about little "ugly shiro".....getting a bit better....

    These are not pics of impressive growth - just a young fish. The rapid change in body conformation & pattern development are interesting, at least to me. Has grown from 4 1/2" June 3, to 9 1/2" today, so about 10 weeks.

    Thought maybe some of you guys would enjoy looking at a wee, tiny koi growing up.....remind you of your early days in koi hobby.

    Good points, IMO, body shape is coming along nicely and happy about development of well balanced motogoro. Can't see, but the ventral & anal fins marked consistently with pecs. White is still way off, fish still yellowish. Hope to see that clear up. Sumi seems to be re-emerging much darker again from the tail section forward.

    Edit - pics posting out of order. 1st one june 3, last one june 28, two pics in middle are today. (Last pic looks like crapola - yikes!)

    Jen looks all good.. Especially in the blue tub... hush Luke! anyhow what is yoru temps feed etc? I think this shiro will come back this winter... Head, fins look consisitent of yellow tinge. So some fasting through winter good cool water I think you might be seeing a different tone of white by next spring...
