It was clear, without green water before the second huge water change & the filter was off for about 2wks. Caught 19 fish & sold them, so I won't believe "too many fish".
I don't feed a lot and usually only once a day, enough that it's gone quickly, usually. A third of a cup.
And the shade only allows for morning sun for a couple hours to an area that is 13ft long by about 2-2.5ft wide.
i'm not sure of your reply if it means that the filter was not running for two weeks and then you turned it on or what happened there? i don't know your setup so hard for me to be sure what is up there and i hope the rest of your fish will be ok.

Good news, bad news!

Apparently, the koi I IDed as the Ochiba Shigure was actually a home grown mutt that looked similar, at least when dead. :th

The real Ochiba Shigure I just saw while feeding! Its fatter & longer now! Darn guy stressed me out so much!

Who knew IDing dead fish was so tricky!

There was one on the shade cloth this morning. But when I touched the window to get a good picture of it, it flew away. This one spooked easily.
