    They're here!

    UPS guy tossed/dropped the box right as I was opening the door. I yelled at him, but he just glared at me and kept walking. :somad

    But fish seem okay!

    Should of asked how they measure the fish, but oh well. They measure nose to tip of tail end, while I measure nose to base of tail(actual body length).

    Ugh, really wish I had crystal clear water so that I could drain most of it and be able to choose which fish to rehome all at once. But no, I have to take video and try to decide through that, then semi blindly catch fish and make a final call that way.

    Seems like I have 2 black or near black baby koi. That little white and pale yellow ginrin I shouldn't of released, as I found a larger one!

    I'm about to buy a 3rd one and finally figured the problem. I'm so slow.
    Could of saved this one if I had been more careful with the net basket and the butthead koi!
    Buying a 3rd one tomorrow. Have a big window screen mesh basket ready for it.
    Shouldn't break again unless an animal drags it out of the water or lightening fries it.

    Lightening fried my huge main filter pump a couple years ago, that was not a fun replacement! My purse cried mercy for weeks! Heh

    Anywho, with the waterfall being sold, this little pump is mostly for more air being added to the pond and to keep a hole open during winter.

    Caught a baby goldfish mutt and the sarasa goldfish plus some koi.
    Trying to get even more water out to catch others. Going to remove the large pale yellow butterfly koi, too.

    The wee mutt.

    Sarasa is at right top.
    Might toss back that orange & black koi.
    Not sure if I'll keep the sparkling orange... Screenshot_20190522-153134_Video Player.jpg 20190522_143124.jpg

    Orange & black is getting sold, have 2 others in the pond.
    Had a better looking Granite koi, so that other one is getting sold. Same with the littles I tossed back before.

    Caught a bunch more! All selling. Need to make a better bin to store them in...Current bin I think they might jump out the hand holds or knock it over to escape...
