Looking great Costa. Those guys up there can be very happy to get this kind of service of grow on in a mudam. From tosai to nissai is it very important for the fish to be in a mudpond to reach it's full potencial. I'm looking forward to the results in April!

Hi Costa

They all look great ,and i am holding thumbs to see the growth by April.

I hope the birds dont get hold of the small guys,will be a pity.

To be in 4million lts of water must be like heaven Laughing for those koi.

The dam looks really breathtaking.
Cheers

Hey Cossie, that does look fantastic

I am pretty happy I decided to go with the Torazo Kohaku above the Sakuma Sanke in the end.

The smallest of the lot but I think a beautiful fish none the less, really excited to see how it comes out in the end.

This is the Torazo I replaced the Sakuma Sanke with in the end (Sanke I posted above)

Went to visit Costa on friday and must admit that the dam looks amazing!

I found my Torazo swimming around and followed it for a while around the dam, they look like they are absolutely loving it in there!

Joe and Costa were worried I was going to dive in and join it after a while.....lol

There's also such an abundance of life in the dam as well already, millions of little schools of tadpoles....was a real treat seeing some of the babies darting thru the schools of tadpoles like a school of dolphins would thru a shoal of sardines.

I also hear that Mario has purchased the sanke I was going to, so see we have an additional participant in our friendly compo now Very Happy

I absolutely cannot wait to see how these fish look in April next year! Hopefully good so that I can leave it there thru the next winter as well!

Thansk again for this opportunity Costa, you have no idea how I appreciate the opportunity to give this koi such a start in it's life.......opportunities like this are few and far between.....thank you very much!

It's a risk, but a risk worth taking in my eyes!

Hey Costa.
Poor Jackson, he maar just jife lol! He scared of the warm klap lol! Really stunning fish going in to the mud pond, cant wait to see the outcome of the Murata's and the Takahashi's. Good Luck to all the contenders, may the best fish win. bounce There is one fish in particular that I will hold my fingers crossed for that she will be safe through the whole mud pond season, Costa maybe hire a sniper for the family this time since I forgot them there bounce

Hi Costa
Very nice fish that went to the mud pond. Will I be right if I say the Sanke in the first video are male? If it is... will it be for sale Question Did you put my Showa in the mud pond to? The Showa in the second video also looks male and if it is, will it be for sale?
