Neli, it's not king fishers giving me problems , It's a family of Giant Herons [ mom, dad,and 1 little brat ].
I do have the fire power to sort them out, but I can't just destroy a family, have not got the heart to pull the trigger. even though they killed a 80 cm Isa kohaku. Sad Sad Sad
The fish in the above video are in my middle mud dam which is a million litres, so not very easy to protect,

Tommy , you're in for a bit of a shock , when you come get all those fish in that dam, the Herons go with . Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil [ Your problem ] Laughing Laughing

There is no way those birds will see the sun come up again if they eat any of my fish.

Hi Costa.
No problem, on arrival they would rather think of leaving again.... Twisted Evil I have a Sheep Dog and nothing flies around in my yard. Not even the Bees and insects are safe. Her fav past time is to catch the bees every day. I get cross with her because she jump on all the plants in the garden to catch the Bees and what ever hides in there.

This is the first video of the soragoi, this fish just wouldn't settle after it came out the mud dam.
Such a pity to waste all that energy, Twisted Evil Twisted Evil I was thinking of using her as a
"WASHING MACHINE" and saving on electricity . Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Very Happy Very Happy Laughing

Cliff, it would be nice to take photos of that shiro, only problem , It's back in the bigger mud dam at the top.
The sumi on this shiro never wanted to come up, so she spent a year in the mud, pity I could not get her into clear water [ as she was going back in the dam. ]and she is stunning, Cliff I'll need your help in two weeks time when the big dam will be dragged. Will keep you posted.[ BRING YOUR CAMERA ]


Neli, yes they are the babies of that Orenji ogon you like. no problem Neli will keep some back for you to choose.

Hi Quinten,

All the reads are going to be pulled out, and the dam cleaned, I will be making it a bit deeper and covering with a new net.
At the moment it holds one and a half million litres, when its finished it will be two million litres.
The dam will be rented out to some guys who want to grow their fish in for a year.
I might do the same with the 3rd dam.

Regards.
