    Unusual occurrences

    I was intrigued to see if this happens to anyone else. So after the earlier post about collecting some clay, I spoke to koi logic who was still open and as its a Monday it was quiet so I decided to pop down to collect the NT labs mediclay following the correct procedures of distances etc as I figured its probably not going to be long before we are in total lockdown. Now on to the strange bit, I collected the clay and found when I got home there was also a box with 2 fish in which I got for free according to what I told my missus anyway?! I don't know how it happened but this lovely little Asagi and Showa are now happily swimming around in the pond with my others!

    Nice! Unfortunately this has not happened to me yet as I am only just starting my build!
    I'm sure in time though I will find such suprises after visiting dealers when only going for smaller purchases!
    Enjoy

    Lock down in place now, imagine all the koi waiting for new homes over the next month or two whilst we can't shop for them as all non essential shops are shut now unless its via post I guess?

    just want to stress it was a trip to the shop and home keeping more than safe distances when interacting with staff, as the fish were bowled etc I stepped away to keep space so although not ideal visiting the shop in the first place, I followed the correct restrictions. We wont be visiting any dealers for a while now

    Well said mate. People are treating it as a joke. And it no laughing matter. Until one of there family gets it.
    Then we will see who is laughing.
    I hope god forbid no one does get it.
    Because this is very very serious.

    I am chesty through being a smoker. Self inflicted. But I ain't worried about myself. I care about all the little ones and older ones out there lol. When my youngest grandbain
    Was born in December 3 weeks later she was in hospital for 2 weeks. Tubes ventilated the lot. Fluid on the lungs.
    Pneumonia. Bless her. I now believe she had this shit. But obviously they did nt know what it was then.
    And it knocked the stuffing out of myself and our lass.
    And until people see something like that
    They just don t understand.

    Hi Samp,

    That truly is remarkable and an amazing coincidence they were 2 you liked as well. I hope the Mrs has not accused you of confusion (or worse) as this would of course put you in credit to actually buy some now.

    Ive not had your scenario happen to me, although the other year, I had a few strange occurrences:


    • Two cracking fish jumped from next door who can’t remember having owned them.
    • Some of my koi had huge babies overnight
    • Some of my koi totally changed size shape and colour when she was at work
    • I had miscounted my collection previously when the wife was making ‘notes’ on how many were in the pond


    AND ALL THIS AFTER A HERON DROPPED ME 3 IN!!!

    My guess is I will encounter your scenario shortly after the lockdown is over.

    Gaz

    Just have to keep a good eye on the little ones john. especially the little one with bad hayfever. I know they cannot be wrapped in cotton wool mate.
    It's about being very vigilant.
