    You certainly need a sanke, a variety that grow on you over time I reckon, and strong sumi on that one

    Already seen the little Kuraku (?), it's made friends with the other smaller fish and is busy hovering food.

    Sorry to say the Sanke passed away during a spell of horrific wind, freezing temps, thunderstorms and rain over winter.

    Popping out to see if things were ok with the pond, I found it sat at the bottom upright but cloudy eyes and no response to being touched, the net or being out of water. It had quite vibrant colour still, had a mucus covering and the gills were slightly darker red but not black and without necrosis. It could have been water quality making it susceptible to pathogens but it had grown into quite a lump in a year and seemed happy/unaffected previously.

    All the other fish seem happy and growing well.
