      Mattttt!!!!!!
      Thanks for the LOLs. There really nothing quite as good as a rolling LOL in the morning.

      Sorry I've been absent as you present your new fish. I've been lurking without commenting because you know, I know nothing about gosanke after allllll these years.
      Wishing you the best with the ones you keep for the long haul!

      Thank you, friend.
      This year, four ponds, four harvests.
      Will lay out the plans as we get closer.
      Soon, John Clark and I will select dates, weather dependent, of course.
      Anyone within driving distance of Amenia, New York (hahaha) is welcome to come.
      Fishies are calling me now and I must go.
      They know 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
      They really do!

      Announcement!

      Wednesday, Oct. 9th, Koi Harvest at KiShusui Koi Farm!

      We will be starting at 10:30 a.m. when John Clark's truck pulls up into the field.
      He has given us instructions not to lower the water below the standpipe for the Agridrain.
      We should be pulling approximately X hundreds of fish; old friends with names, blue ki shusui who didn't make the oyagoi cut, miscellaneous fish in the colors of shusui/ki shusui/ogon/midori and some random metallic fish brought to you by a doitsu hariwake known as "Horse With No Name."

      If you are within driving distance of Amenia, New York (N.E. Dutchess Cty) please come..
      LMK because we will be having a nice stand-up lunch as well as some laughs.
      After the pull, it will take a few days to sort out the number of pictures we will surely take.
      We are prepping right this minute, pulling out equipment, tubs, aerators and measuring tape.
      Also = Raincoats!

      As for the grow-out. My kids for the grow-out are in the lower pond, aka nursery, and we'll pull that two weeks from today.
      There will be pictures, my koiphen friends. Count on it.
      More soon!

      Sorry, janivan, I don't sell fish.
      I'm trying to breed the elusive ki shusui and I can't do this alone. My friend John Clark, pix coming up, sells fish all over two or three counties around here. So he helps me by taking the fish that don't move my project toward the goal. He sells fish! I don't think he ships, but I'll ask when I see him tomorrow. I'm going to post pix of today's baby pull, warm-up for tomorrow.

      Warrm-up pull in the littlest pond -- pictures!

      This short story started May 2017.
      I have a Big Pond of about 450,000 gals.
      I put in a little pond for net baskets, made it heart-shaped, put in some doors and plants and yes, this is some kind of craziness but the pond is cute about 85,000 gallons. Called it Turtle Bay Park and sat on a rock and just enjoyed it.

      There's a piece of pvc pipe connecting the Big and little pond and a perforated cap over the pipe.
      After the spawn(s) in the Big Pond, some leetle kiddos swam through and since the pond wasn't netted, got targeted by the big blue bird.

      Today, we pulled Turtle Bay, found no turtles, loads of tadpoles, and 129 muttagoi, most a combination of my particular brand of fish stew in that little puddle in the pic of the empty pond.

      See the whole lot of them in the rubbermaid tub. And see the Turtle Bay Pond refilled.
      I'm keeping 14 kids, and they will winter over in the Big Pond. See them last. John took the rest back to Northeastern Aquatics in Rhinebeck, NY.

      We pull the BIG Pond tomorrow, there will be more pictures! Cross my heart.

      See ya'll soon,

      Red mango, yellow mango, green mango

      They look primarily doitsu. Do you get surprise non-fruit variety in the spawn?

      Jim Fish, we will have some video taken today, but my fishyographer moved. So I will be able to see what vid taken with our cameras was youtube worthy.

      Abuchi, 1. yes mango is a favorite color around here. The ingredients for ki shusui are all in the mango family.

      2. That said, I have a pond called "the learning curve pond," and def. get surprises in there. I have gosanke in that pond, also long fin, and metallic. We will prob not pull that pond this year.

      3. Today, there were so many fish in the Big Pond i was shocked. John was only able to do one pull of the net because the deep end of the pond is so filled with soft mud it was hard to walk.

      4. Tomorrow we will pull the Lower Pond, take a look at our choices for most probable oyagoi, photograph fish for grow out and Virtual Comps, then, wrap up for the year.
      Cold and rainy today!

      Uploading photos now.

      These are muttagoi all with mango and survivor genes. Rain this brings me back to the that young fellow on the board who found koi in his ? septic tank ? LOL
      That's where we came in. I told him to rescue those fish or they would come up into his toilet! and apparently "scared the s*ot outta you?

      cannot stop laffin at the memory.

      Anyway, representing YOUR fish, Mr. Rainblood, just snapped. How does he look to you? Does he look male?

      Report on the day coming up.

      Report on Big Pond pull == part 1. a

      Team Ki

      Must say this was the most iffy of the past Big Pond pulls and not because of the fish.

      Because of this: thunder:

      Started misting from the get-go and turned into some serious rain by the time John got into the pond. The kind peeps behind the camera were just
      "learning as they went." Sage shot stills with rain pouring into the tubs ruining the shots and she and Liam both took video, same weather conditions. Liam is headed out of town to a wedding and when is back, I'll see what vid we have.

      Meanwhile due to weather condition, John was working super fast.
      There were so many fish!!!!
      And he only pulled the net one time due to deep sludge impediment.
      STILL
      so many fish.
      Here's what I mean.
