Default My precious kois

finally went into the pond to catch my precious and managed to get some pictures for sharing.

all these are from ah seng in my tiny 6 ton pond.

tancho - unfortunately hi beginning to spread faster than its size. one of the best body shaped in my pond.

shiro - one of my favourite, due to flawed deisign of my pond, scales dropping off after hitting my deck repeatedly during feeding. also tiny little orange spots appearing after 2 months.

showa - same as shiro, got injury on its "y" sumi due to my decking. eats the most thus have a huge tummy.

asagi - smallest growing among the rest still currently at 15cm. got injury on its scales at the top of head. very shy and timid.

kohaku - my only kohaku in my pond. currently at 20cm and should be emerging into a big fish patttern.

all comments are welcome......

Wow bro, so so good collection. Love the Showa a lot... Thanks for sharing bro! Mind showing the whole setup for your pond? I am planning to make a small pond too. Still under consideration.

ogon - one of the skinnest among all due to interest in algae instead of pellets. colour is still managing though.

Sanke - doesnt eat much, fortunately no injury on its head

ginrin sanke - follow the sanke like a twin brother, also doesnt eat much, currently at 15cm. not much growth

chagoi - grown the biggest of the lot. from 18cm to 28cm in 1 & half months.

yamabukis - test kois from ah seng. currently at 10cm and 13cm.

lastly - me in action over an hour just to get my precious some nice pictures.

forgot about the ogon...and other pictures of my pond. here it is.

thks. setup is just
- 4 chamber filter with j mats and bags of coral shells.
- centre bottom drain and surface skimmer.
- water also pumps to water feature for ntirate filter from plants.
- using 2 x nova 200 pumps at 12ton per hour for each pump (based on their specs)
- feed 3 times per day
- 2 x 10% change of water per week

i am quite new to keeping kois, not sure what other info you need. shoot me with questions if i didnt answer your question.

thks for your comments. cant remember where i hear it from (probably some U.S. koi forum). if shiro got orange spots can try applying lime/lemon over it and it will disappear after a few treatment.

not sure if anyone tried it before ? anyway not particular, if orange spots come out just rename - showa......hehe.
