    Touch every thing mate we fine at the moment haven't been affected apart from a few tress and fences . . Chag is around 25cm mate . . With 22/23 water temp I hope to get a good few cm on them all like . .

    The goshiki and asagi are 14cm
    Utsuri is 17/18cm
    And the chag is 24/25cm

    Grow ons doing very well, in 21 deg and getting fed about 5 times a day.

    Couple I will keep to grow on but will see when I catch them up in the spring.
    This drum I made is great on them,no cleaning just change the floss on top of the shower every couple of weeks though there is a faint brown tint in the water but doesnt bother me.

    Just waiting for my lift at 1 PM off to Chester to sample the pubs there.

    Think 5 a pint is ott but hey ho.

    Had a couple of whiskeys this aft calmed me down a bit.
    Gave the drum in the grow on a good blasting to waste which I do about every month or so and changed the fleece on top of the shower so jobs all done.

    How are your grow ons Aj,you got the newbies in there as well ?
