Hi Guys

The Journey has begun.

With Pondy back at school, JP and I picked up a box of very sexy looking Shiros from the ARC at Heathrow last night.

A good crack, good company and a real sense of anticipation mixed with a little nervousness when you see the boxes being unloaded.

Got a chance to peek at a couple of the fish in the boxes, humm when you see a fish with its nose touching one end of a 1m box and its tail within a few cm of the other end you know that you are looking at something special, particularly when itís a Kohaku!!

No more dreaming - Back to the Shiro;

All have travelled well, not too stressed and are now in a very well thought out and put together QT system. Class act JP..

Quality wise - all I can say is Wow; you will not be disappointed Guys!!

well i went round jp's and took a few pic's of the koi in the QT and the QT itself.

the first lot are of john's Qt set up, i have to admit i love the bio secure shower curtain stopping the spillage and splashed going into his own system from the qt

now before i show you a couple of glipmses of the shiro, after the flight all the way from Japan, the babies did very well, in fact a couple of small splits to their pecs and one little darling thats got a bit of bag rub.
i tell you this and show you the pic, so as to keep you all in the loop and not to hide nothing from you.

apart from that really pleased with them, whites looking good and they seem very healthy. here's some glimpses of the shiro's in the vat.
