PostSubject: Some of my fish - Comments pls.   Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:09 am

Hi, just want to show you some of my fish, please offer comments. I will be posting the rest of my fish soon, some I need to get rid of as I am abit overstocked.

So will need to know which are the ones worth keeping and which are not, please do offer comments on what you think of these.

Thanks

No1 - Not sure what this is, liked it when I saw it for the first time as thought it would offer a nice variation in my pond - your opinions appreciated.




No2 - Bought this asagi in beginning September at 5cm and it's around 16cm's now, think that's pretty good growth rate..or not?? also want to know why is it so light on it's back? are some just darker than others, or is it just poor quality?



No3 - 3 Step Kohaku - This and my Kumanryo are my favourites



No4 - Not sure what this one is, in the pond he appears completely black yet has this coloring



No5 - Kumanryo - I really like this one

The second fish is not an Asagi.
Looks more metalic to me.
The only one worth keping is the Kohaku.

Agree with Jaco, only the Kohaku is .........Ok, not good but OK for a pond fish!

Collin told me the beginning of this year that one should just leave a Kumonryo, at least till after 2 years, as the colours change so much. Your opinion?

Well ALbie, I really like the Kumaryo, so irrespective of comments I was going to keep him.

SO I am really looking forward to how he turns out
