    He's does indeed John, are their genetics good for growth as I want a pond of about 15 fish that are lunkers

    Was down there about a month ago, took me up to one of his mud ponds some lovely fish there to, all babies but some looked really nice, its hard for a novice like myself to pick a quality fish from bigger fish, but from 4 to 8 inches its

    Here's the latest picks, just unable to keep the rain out, don't know as to whether to back fill in case rain soaks through walls was gonna back fill with scalpings. but water can still track apparently.

    That's the problem with small koi as they can change so much,you can allways ask to see the parents though.

    Maybe better to buy a bit bigger say 10 to 12 ins,out of the 25 x 6 ins I kept only one or two and they grew ok.

    it will dry quicker as is, when are you finishing it?

    possible to dig out a sump hole on the outside to try and get the surface water to head there and be pumped away rather than up through your slab?
