        I will be out of the contest since I probably will not be able to provide the update at 6 months. I have been trying to catch the damn koi for the past few days but they are too fast for me. I will try again later. However, I will definitely update with pictures at 12 months when they are bigger and slower. Sorry.

          Find a friend and a seine net if you can. It would be a shame for you to miss out on the competition just because you can't catch them. (they are some FAST little buggers aren't they)
