      OH and by the way, no one ever measures a Gherkin until it's grown. Sheesh gotta teach her everything.

      Here we go

      Handle: Rudy

      Name: Rudy

      End length 10/22/2007 ... 19"

      Start length ... 9"

      6' Pearls show tank with approx. 450 gallons total.

      Stocking: Started with just the 2 shown, added 2 koi @ 15" to 16". 2 released to main tank one at a time over the past 3 months.

      Food: Microbe - Lift Legacy Variety

      Treats: Not really. Watermelon 1 time and the same for shrimp.

      Feeding rate: Depending on how many koi I had at a time (2 or 4) any where from 3 to 6 regular size pill bottles full divided into 2 daily feedings. I would use 4 per day as a norm.

      Water changes: Weekly but due to filter set up always ended up with more than the 10% I prefer with my water. I believe the problem you see was due to that.

      Location: Kept in garage with 2 - 4ft standard florescence on timer.

      Air: Yes.

      Filtration: DIY tetra BD to tank with 20 brushes then up to another tank with a aerated container of previously established K1 and gravity dump back.
      This was changed to a Nexus POD around 2 months ago.

      Thanks for letting me play.

      Same bowl FYI.

      Wow very nice guys. My water is green. I got my new UV installed today. If it doesn't work in the next 6 days no way I'm going to be able to catch mine or to take fish to Charlotte. I've been changing out water and hoping haven't feed in 2 weeks now.
