    Fish free to a good home

    Time to try and move on some of my original koi as I am now getting quite overcrowded. These are not the greatest fish lol! Probably all Israli and among my first purchases when I thought £18 was a lot to spend on a fish! The sizes are very approximate if you are interested in taking any of them I can catch and measure them properly if you want.

    This one used to be a three step kohaku but gradually lost all her Hi. Before I re did the pond and separated the koi from the planted margin she damaged herself badly during spawning - the old scars can still be seen on her left hand flank. A greedy fish now pushing 50cm and about 8 years old.

    This one is rapidly turning into a kohaku the picture below was taken a few years back. It has also developed a bit of a curve to the right as can just be seen in the photos above. Now around 40-45cm 6 years
