my new little kohaku's

Finishing off the harvest this morning, by emptying the pond. The fry will collect in the sink area, and we'll pull them out with a pan net.

The fry harvested yesterday have settled in well. There are a few insects - I don't know what their proper name is, but they look beetle like. Saw them attacking the fry this morning! Amanda took a couple of hundred out last night, and we'll evict the others today.

Here's the haul from yesterday

And some close ups - wonder where there's a future Grand Champion here :-) (one has to dream....). These are pics straight from the harvested koi - no selection has taken place yet. What you see, is what I've got!

Check out the beetle like thing - top left. Those things are having a go at my fry!

Becoming accustomed to their new food.
