      Thank you, Brian!
      As a hobby, it has huge range in koi and koi keeping. In my case, I fell hard for one small niche, shusui/asagi/ki shusui because it just called out to me -- oh, yeah, and mud ponds. It's all I can handle. I wonder what part of the hobby will call out to you.
      Btw, Welcome to koiphen!

      Thank you Max. I'm recently retired and found out fish are my passion. Currently we have 100 Brook trout and five Comets in an indoor 3000 gallon masonry tank and 4 what I think are Longfin Koi in a small 500 gallon garden tank. As I progress I hope to identify them properly. In our living room we have dozens of tropical fish in a low tech planted aquarium. Hehe I should probably let my wife know if I can narrow down my list of favorites sometime soon.

      Hi, Brian, didn't mean to leave your post hanging! You've found the right web forum because so many aspects of the hobby are represented and voiced here. If you start a thread with your plans and pix of your "before" fish, you'll get thoughts from members. I'd start with re-homing the trout, but then, I'm a carp lover. maybe you eat the trout in which case, i have nothing to offer but bon appetit! CU on your thread.

      Sounds VERY inviting with the weather today, Max. Hope all is well. We opened our pond and it is now running covered in ice and the temperature in the pond is wayyyy down. Yuck!

      hi, marg, it's in the thirties today, snow expected. really. i live in a rural area and have the small cape cod on what some of us refer to as "morgan stanley row." lol. meaning, zoning codes galore, including one house per 5 acres. i have 4.95. on a hillside ;(
      so, koi house not happening. but i def. sympathize with you and your extra chill weather. when will summer come! when? i've been feeding fish manda fu and cheerios and sprinkles of wheat germ pellets. they seem okay. i saw "your" longfin asagi yesterday and she's looking fine. Saw some of the little ones in the lower pond. i'm expecting hundreds, but glad to see some. and also, yesterday, saw all 6 of the oyagoi, so i can finally exhale plus grandparents and thelonia, my dear ki asagi who i hope will dazzle if she goes kado gin :Yes: and if she doesn't, i still love that gorgeous face. LOL. now i sound like my mother.
      Throw another log on the fire!
      And hope the magnetic poles don't flip -- which apparently is due to happen! put on your gravity boots just in case.

      Max, she is a lovely girl. I don't really see any indication she will go Kanoko, the Ki looks strong enough and solid enough to hold. Thank you for the side shot.
      It's not uncommon for either Hi or Ki on Asagi to occupy part of a scale as it comes. It may continue to rise but I suspect, at her age, she might be maxing out (no pun intended) on her Ki development.
      She does have a bit of a pointed head and for her age and type, she is a little small but she's very clean and I would be proud to have her in my pond. Well done, my friend.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      I'll say something when I feel I have something worth saying. I'm not a fan of flapping my lips just because they are there.

      Thanks, Marilyn, for that really specific (and wonderful) critique!

      I swear I was thinking about this fish again this evening, wondering again if i have a couple of her boy sibs (or maybe kids) that I noticed in the last pull who might fancy this girl. I just got back from dinner with a friend and when we walked out to our cars, she asked me what I was thinking. I said, "I'm thinking of having a really cool spawn next year."
      She cracked up in the parking lot. Almost couldn't breathe.
      I'm ki kichi. What more can I say?

      Yes, I have a picture of her lady parts. But for the sake of her dignity, keeping them private.
