So how much money is in that shot? The large white one has to be at worth at least $100.

Roger,
Unfortunately a few of those fish didn't make it through the winter
Here in Minnesota, it was brutal.

I just recently added 5 imported Kohaku's to the pond that have been inside all winter, and decided that in the fall, all the fish will come inside.
It's hard losing a pet. Even if it's just a fish.

Pondmom,
Wow! - Your pond is absolutely beautiful!!!
I hear ya re: losing a pet fish... I lost one of my Sarasa Comets this fall
His mate still seems lonely despite the Shubunkin and Butterfly Koi.
Here is a pic of my tiny 250 gal pond started May 2002:

When I saw that pic of those Koi my heart fluttered. That is IMPRESSIVE!! That would make any Koihead drool. Sorry u lost a couple of fish. I had 8 of my adults wash out during a flood a couple of weeks ago (probably $1500 worth of fish).It is definately a disheartening thing to discover. Keep up the excellent work. Are some of the Koi in your pond one's that have been bred and raised in there or did you buy each one?

Thanks for the kind comments.
As you can see, my passion is in my gardens/pond
Every moment I get i'm out there. It's just so relaxing

All of those fish were bought except for maybe 3 that were born in the pond.
I'm not sure as to what type of fish it is because it won't come close enough for me to inspect.

Brandon, i'm sorry to hear of your loss as well. I know how you feel.
ShyKoi~ beautiful pond Love the landscaping

Yea, the winter was brutal. A racoon came by for some fishshicles, and finished off all of the survivors during the winter.
