Cover Off !

Post by Admin on Tue Apr 12, 2011 8:51 pm

Cover Off Very Happy April 2011 ..

Still very cold during the early morning here in the "Welsh" Tundra Rolling Eyes but peaking to 20C during the day so a Disrobing of the Koi Vat was called for Arrow




I have "Shade" Netted it though !

That looks like quite a nice setup. How many gallons (liters?) does it hold? Good looking hungry fish. Love the smacking sounds!

When filling it via a meter Nancy it read 940 Gallons and it houses 10 Koi Shocked well 9 in fact now that one is in QT !

She DID have a Companion but ate him out of Pond and Home Twisted Evil so after 3 days of weakening starvation I returned him to his pals in the Show Vat Rolling Eyes

MIO can really tug at fingertips now as can Sequins the Gin Chag so a good thing indeed they have "Pharyngial" Teeth affraid

Cover On

Post by Admin on Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:45 pm

I Have decided to Cover at least half of the Vat with the Solar Winter cover due to the winds being treacherous of late with torrential rain.

This was so appalling last night I had my lovely gin chag leap through the very edge of the shade net Crying or Very sad and only discovered him this morning Crying or Very sad
He was such a beautiful Koi Babe ... and one of the best.

Terrible loss and coming so soon after losing the Tumour koi babe. Crying or Very sad

That's very sad Mio, why do they jump out? I have just treated one of ours that jumped out a few of weeks ago, it had an inflamed wound underneath which would have turned nasty. Luckily, one of our Vizslas brought our attention to the koi which was hidden under a pallet.

The Storm was horrendous Alan ... The water level 6 inches below the nets .. and the gap in the corner just 2 inches Shocked

How he leapt through it is baffling given I have never had a Koi jump out of the water before.

they leap to catch flies etc but not usually high enough to land outside the vat.

I am Gutted about his loss ... he was Hannibals GO Tank mate for 2 yrs Crying or Very sad
