    Love it! ♡

    Did you figure out what happened to all the winter lost koi?
    My guess is predators.
    I never had colorful fry survive, and one day, I found out why. A kingfisher was getting them. Put up a net and now they survive.

    In this video, we finish the 2016 upgrade. The excavator leaves, and a new a new fence will come in place. To knock down hundreds of fence posts, Is a heavy manual job! In the next video, the focus changes to 2017. This spring 80 small Yamabuki (Marudo) tosai will arrive from Japan. We will follow the preparation before the arrival, QT - periode, and releasing them into the pond. In the summer, the 2017 upgrade begins.

    Wow, what a transformation! Just looking at all those fence posts makes my body hurt!
    The yamabuki's are going to look great in there.
