      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      After reading your post and seeing the pictures, these hariwakes are now one of my top favorites. The more I read the more facinating this koi hobby becomes. You plan on selling any of your growouts? I'm not quite ready, just currious.

      Hi, airic, i'm crazy about these doitsu hariwakes, too. it wasn't my original plan -- i was just adding the yellow gene to the mix to try to get that ki-shusui. but, i like them so much, i think i'm going to give the hariwakes their own pond.

      i'm not planning on going into the koi business, but if you are going to be in the neighborhood next april/may when we seine the pond, send me an e-mail.

      right now, i plan to overwinter them all in the mud, next year pick out a hundred or so, grow them out, pick the best.

      rick, with the ki-shusui, or in general?
      the hariwakes had a party as soon as they were put into the lake, that's for sure.

      i really like the little ki shusui...........cool..........and i am interested in your whole project...i would like to do a mud pond some day....keep up the good work..and i would expect some heavy culling by mother nature if you leave all of the fry in the mud pond over the winter in new york......hopefully the little ki shusui makes it.....good luck....i think the larger fish will hang on but i would worry about the little tosai going into winter...your call of course

      Hi, Dan, i've never had babies overwinter in the mud deliberately. you are giving me pause. the pond is 12 feet deep, there are shallows and i'm going to put in a bucket heater to keep the ice open. wouldn't be easy to catch them. the pond is an irregular shape approx 150 x 40. are you saying they just can't take the cold? or is this a food thing?

      Whenever my wife goes on business trips and spots a koi pond, she snaps pictures of all the fish for me. Here is one from her last trip, thought you might like to see it.

      Dan, talked to my fish hatchery friend who says the fry will do very well in the mud over winter. not the kind of situation as in a liner pond.
