Re: Tokyo/Ojiya/Isawa/Hiroshima/Minuma Bound PSKoi Winter 2021

Some of those Beni Kumonryus look really interesting-especially the ones where the sumi is edging the beni! You are getting a lot of fish that will fun fish to follow as they grow.

That would be nice, but may take another 5 years at the current rate of growth!

Goshiki Progression

Taniguchi Goshiki - Purchased in 2019 at 14 inches. October 2019 16.5 inches. October 2020 she is at 19 inches. Steady growth, a bit darker than last year, but still looking terrific! The first two pictures are from this year, and the last shows the advertised photo, fall of 2019, and fall of 2020.

Utsuri Progression

I took a few bad photos of some of the fish that I posted as Tosai in 2019. This would be their nisai updates. First up is an Omasaku Gin Rin Shiro Utsuri - bought at 10 inches, 17 inches in 2019, and now 19 inches. The sumi is really coming out now. Just waiting on some more on the head. The first ...

Re: Corona Virus scare

It’s looking like Hydroxychloroquine isn’t the game-changer it was being touted to be a few weeks ago. Go figure. Maybe bleach and sunlight will provide greater efficacy against this invisible scourge? What information have you seen? I have yet to see any data to indicate that HCL is not effective....

Re: Corona Virus scare

Actually, the scary thing is that all of the deaths we have from the flu, year after year, are even WITH a vaccine. Think about that. Even with a flu vaccine (or rather vaccines), the number of deaths from the flu dwarfs (to date at least) the number of deaths from CV-19. This summer/fall will tell ...

Re: Corona Virus scare

That CDC page is limited to the time frame of February 1 to April 11 which misses the height of this year's flu season. As I read the description, the flu data does not include CV-19 deaths. Interestingly, the number of CV-19 deaths used in the modeling (and tracking) for April 11 was 20,461, a bit ...

Re: Corona Virus scare

There is a significant difference between "reported" flu deaths and "reported" corona-virus deaths. The "reported" coronavirus deaths are better compared to the "estimated" flu deaths, since Indiana (under the guidance of the CDC) report anyone who might have ...

Re: Winter Cover

Sitting room is pretty much done- except for cleanup! Because of the decking, I went with 1" foam mats for the floor. Keeps it nice and toasty, and the fish seen to enjoy their winter treats!

Re: Winter Cover

Dang!! Pretty much a double dang...this has to be put up every year, and taken down. The nice thing is that it should come down in 2-3 days. Each of the side panels is attached by about 10 screws (a couple per flange and one per baluster). The top panels are held in the rails by a couple bolts. Dis...
