I have finally finished the top mud dam revamp, [ one down two to go ]. It took 114 hours to fill up, my borehole pump pushes 30,000 litres an hour, total water volume is 3,420,000. i could take it a bit higher,but prefer to leave as is.
Will be putting 55 of my fish in the dam and one fish of Anver's, total water volume per fish is 62,000 lt.

And another angle. The fish will be going in on Monday. The dam will run with a ring blower which pushes 2,400 Lt / minute

Hi Costa
Please post some photos of the Murata Kohaku's that will go in there if you have time. Jeanine's are AWESOME and if I'm not mistaken the only one that size in SA Suspect I'm crazy about Murata Kohaku's, stunning white, body and hi. Understand why they like them so much in Japan and why they are priced so high. This fish are a total pleasure in the pond. If we are all saved till next year, I will breed her with the right choice of males. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Hi Neli,

The following 3 fish are going into Costa's 3 million litre mud dam, so we can see how they come out at the next dam drag next year March or thereabout.

The contenders are a Murata Kohaku for Anver, and 2 Sakuma Sanke's which one of is mine and the other Costa's........looking forward to seeing how they come out.

Will be just over 50 fish in this 3mil litre pond, and this pond does get some phenomenal growth from what I have seen before.

I reckon my sanke's got the biggest body of all.... Twisted Evil

Costa, remember to take measurements before the release.

Cliff, the fish have changed a bit since those photos were taken, they all have more body and bulk, will measure and take videos. Not counting Anvers Murata kohaku, there will be another 3 Murata kohakus going in.
