    Tosai now at 34.5 weeks old.

    Sorry about picture quality, phone packed up so used wife's which over processes the images.

    They look smaller than they are so I had a measure up.

    Orange one: 32cm
    Brown one (Shiro): 31cm
    Grey one (Tancho) 30cm
    Small one: Didn't measure, but it's still small, maybe 23cm ish.

    So they are no longer growing quite a full 1cm per week, but temps have been down to 13C and they are still in just 380 litres of water. That equates to 3.3 litres per 1cm of fish lol!

    Feeding 3 - 6 times per day, mainly Saki Growth, and mussels twice a week.











    Crazy when you think they looked like this at the end of June:

    Thank you for the kind comments, really encouraging.

    Am quite pleased with the growth in a small tank. Fancy Goldfish fry don't grow anything like this! But the huge water changes are a proper chore twice a week.

    Fred, yeah I got the bug now, but not the space. The conservatory is full of midges, 1000's of them. The wife not happy and said I can't grow fry in there next year. She won't give me planning permission to build a fish house either as I already have 2 sheds and a double garage full of hobby stuff.

    John, we need to see pics of yours mate, and the sieve when its done.

    The tancho Showa is a keeper for sure. Will also keep either the Shiro (hoping red patch on side will get covered by black), or the small one, haven't decided yet but most likely keep the Shiro.

    The orange one is a mutt, and it looks skinny, but I think it could grow very long. My Kirin was skinny at Tosai, now it's the fattest in the pond.
