It beat out all of the other Gosanke, in Denver, and too Reserve Champion.:like:
He is looking great!
Yes, the tap water performs 3 functions, simultaneously, that clean and rotate the filter.
This man knows nothing about keeping Koi and these ponds will NOT support Koi without issues.
Azukari Koi are Koi that breeders keep for you to grow out. I am posting this because many times things just don't work out. The Koi, that are purchased, are basically released into the wild so, they...
If there was ever a "future to ponding" this device is a good step in the right direction. They are made of stainless steel and priced much the same as some of the other "plastic" RDF's. There are no...
The conformation problem with the one on the right is that the body gets to wide to the front area of the dorsal fin and then tapers down right away into a short pointed tail section. This makes the...
It is my understanding that the Kumonryu, on the right, was purchased, for a large sum, by someone in Holland and the pattern went away not long after it was delivered.
The eyelids help in the blinking process...
There are a couple of things I do not like about this fish. The first is the Sumi. I put a couple of arrows that show where the Sumi is "peppery" as this is a sign of low quality Sumi. The other is...
There are 2 more SFF Kohaku and a Momotaro Sanke but I am not really sure which ones yet so, I may have pics, but don't know.
The Sanke is from Sakai Fish Farms
I hope to see it there this year. I have been following it, in pictures/video, for two years.
LOL, it should be interesting this year as there are many more contenders than those shown and I think it is great. Some years there just aren't that many great Koi over 85cm. This year there are...
Simple, fly me over, I was born and raised on O'ahu.:D:
I forgot to mention that it looks like there is something wrong with the right pectoral fin.
The skin and Sumi on this Koi are not very good but, if the price is right, it would make a good learning Koi.
I look forward to seeing you in Tokyo. I think you will enjoy Isawa.
I leave for Tokyo, to attend the All Japan Koi Show, on January 29th. This year I have two customers that are showing Koi at the AJKS. I am very excited to see how these Koi do. I will be posting...
No, it is not from the copper in the pipes.
Chloramines don't really affect humans or pets that breathe oxygen via the air around us.
Yes, in a sense, it was mentioned. If the carbon had been bad it probably would have killed more than just one fish. If the toxins had been strong enough to kill one, it should have killed more...
Yes, penny wise, pound foolish.
Could just be a coincidence...:shrug:
What would be burning the gills and is it coincidence?
There are no "coincidences"...:rolleyes:
:pffft: Boy you can't leave anything alone can you? OK, how about this, it was a coincidence that it happened during a water change because it would have happened with any kind of stress related...
No, you didn't do anything wrong, it was probably coincidence.
Yes, I would show them both.
This is not because of your water, it is because it was already too dark when you got it and it just kept getting darker.
They really aren't fat, it is just the way their bodies are. This is the way they will always look.
Someone has to do it.:D:
This is a male Sanke.
4 - 6 weeks
I don't disagree with feeding in colder temperatures if you know what you are doing. You need to be able to prep your Koi, and pond, for winter feeding. If you don't feed your Koi enough, going into...
I am still waiting fo my...
The eyes are crooked. Just measure from the back edge of the gill plate to the eye.
Brother rainblood, it is also "Kado", if it even existed. :doh:
Brother rainblood and brother Tim, it is Kanoko....
It is a Sanke. The Sanke and the Platinum Ogon are the best two fish you have.
