      5 more days to go

      I will add 120 ("the young guns") kois and one lage Kohaku (70 cm) on friday May 28th. The rest of the "A-team" will stay at the dealers place for another year. I want to be sure they can handle the winther before I add the rest.

      How did you go about removing 1 million gallons? I hope for your sake that it is a lake built with a stand pipe.

      No. I had to use large pumps. There are
      pics early in this tread :-)

      Hey Haab,

      Long time no talk! Been busy with my backyard water course project. One word of advise. Don't set your aeration to deep to help create more super chilled water during your most cold part of winter. Ensure your aerator is at a higher point in the water column to just help keep a hole open to help release dangerous gases. Your fish will enjoy that 39 degree F undisturbed water at its deepest depths. This temp will help your northern koi survive. The more snow ...the better as it will help to insulate your body of water. Question, have you considered windmill aerators as well set in shallow water at strategic locations to help your koi and lake develop healthy? All the best and looking forward to seeing your new spawn?

      Hi Rowly

      Itís nice to hear from you again. Iíve been looking for a tread on your project. Do you have one?

      Thanks for the advice on the aeration in the winter. I know about the danger, so I put it in the middle of the pond, and only 1 m down. More than half of the pond are between 3-4 m deep, so I believe I'm safe.

      Do you have some pics or drawings of the windmill aeration? That was a really good idea - thanks

      What do you mean with my new spawn?

      Hahaha

      Norway is a very small market. Its impossible to make any money. To many people are trying to make money importing cheap kois

      I've been on KP for quite some time and I always find a thread that I've missed. Wished I would have found this one along time ago. Simply awesome photos, pond, fish and landscape. Beautiful country you have there. I would love to be able to visit someday.

      Please keep up all of those awesome photos.


      The first step towards getting somewhere, is to decide you are not going to stay where you are.

      Nice video.....I did worry that you were going to "step off" into the pond as you were moving in the brush.
