    Just added another fish

    I know I shouldn't have but I just couldn't resist.. She has such presence in the pond - I picked her up today - the very last koi from Jocallan's pond.

    I am definitely going to have to move some on in the spring!

    +3000g lily/Anoxic pond attached
    29 koi (40 to 65cm)
    Bottom drain, Mid water & Skimmer to Drum
    JBR boichamber->Blue eco 500 pump ->below surface return.
    Blue Eco 240 -> Large MB -> Waterfall -> Planted Anoxic pond (25 baskets)

    Saw that shiro when I went up to collect mine, as soon as I saw it I was counting the pennies in my head if I could take it as well then he told me it was yours lol, stunning fish

    I text him 3 minutes before your post asking if he still had any Koi left.......

    He's not replied yet, but it seems I now know the answer!

    Congrats Pip, it's a lovely looking Koi, and looks better in the flesh than the pics make out.

    Ian mentioned a couple of people were very keen on taking her if I changed my mind His last remaining three including the Bekko went to a friend of his this morning - I was really surprised no one took that Bekko. Good thing it wasn't still there when I arrived - I might not have been able to resist it.

    Great shame for him - having to sell up this way - I hope his move goes well.

    That's a nice Shiro. Jocallan had some very nice fish. Which breeder is it from?
