    Grow ons

    First picture my favourite koi had lovely beni when I bought it earlier in the year bit fading a bit 31 cm.
    Chagoi from Marusei Queni koi largest 26cm.
    Kujaku I grew from fry Cuttlebrook and I think they have lovely colour 25 cm.
    Thought I would catch them and see how they have come on before winter sets in and must say am pleased.
    Will keep them till spring and then move a few on.20211017_111824.jpg

    Thanks lads am quite pleased with them,especially the Kikusui in the first picture.

    Sure the Chags will grow well and I think the Gin rin makes them look more interesting.

    Cheers John.

    Moving has been a messy stressful process so far, but fingers crossed it ends well. I have someone lined up to take care of the koi during the move - A big weight off my mind.

    At the moment just hoping the move actually happens, so many unreliable people, and a few more who want their cut financially.

    Still lurking the forum though even if not posting as regular.

    I hope you are well.

    Thanks Rs well here,
    Moving house is they say the most stressful thing in life and very glad you have hopefully sorted someone to take care of your lovely koi mate.

    That is the worst nightmare if it doesnt happen for you,there are a lot of tossers out there on the house move so hope it goes smoothly for you.

    Good luck with it mate,if I was closer to you I would help.
