    With all of these guys out, it should leave me with just my keepers and the two new koi.

    Two are pending sale!
    Hoping the others find new homes just as quickly!

    @Carol Dee Love your pond! How deep is it? A friend has a small one that is 5' deep. He said it had to be that deep to keep the racoons out which it does. Therefore he doesn't need to cover it with wire or anything.

    One is 4 inches and the other nearly 4.5 inches long. The ochiba is supposed to be 6", so it's a bit over 1.5" smaller. The goromo 5.5", again, 1.5" shorter. :rolleyes:
    Apparently, they use some sort of mesh, like they use for things like sorting oranges by size, to measure the fish and go with that.
    Doesn't make sense, since they were thin when I got them, thin in pics they posted, too. So, they need to recalibrate it or get a ruler! Since they take pictures of them, wouldn't kill them to toss in a ruler...

    Only about 2 to 3 foot deep. Not had a problem with racoons even though they are seen in the neighbors garage !

    The big fantail and the red/white goldfish should have a home next.
