    Koi measuring bowl

    Any recommendations for a metre bowl? (Planning for the future ) I’m airing towards this, not cheap but there not cheap! And like the D shape

    not a bad price tbh...
    and i like the concept... 2 in one.

    but why are all the UK bowls for sale dark blue,
    when you see fish at the dealers, thier bowls are all japanese and light blue.

    not for sale over here?
    and why can't we make them the same colour?
    fish look much better in light blue coloured bowls imo....

    Fancy a new one like that shape but also fancy cutting a side out of my old one and adding a perspex window in . Less stress on the fish to see any side damage with out getting it a sleeping pill

    if you want a big blue one how about this?
    food grade MDPE as tough as blue mains water pipes
    £120

    1370 x 775 x 670mm

    grey pic but also available in blue

    in fact at 455 litres would make a decent bio....

    If you want a light blue one just spray a clear one the type you get in B and M , on the outside of course all done for under a tenner.
