I think two were in the 50 bin, rest in the 75 bin, but he sold them to us all under the 50 bin. :)

I really only wanted two, but then DH kept finding others...Almost got two yellows...lol, but I refused.

Will go back next year for that gin rin asagi.

Yesterday's Shusui will be called "Ocean's Storm".

Kikusui, shinny with no scales. "Rudolph"

Forgot to send picture I drew up on my PC to my phone...
But pond would go from roughly 4,250gallons to 14,055 gallons!!
Above ground expansion addition will be 9,800 gallons. Unless the website did the math wrong.

Just finished a small w/c on QT tank & power went out.
One hour later & we're still waiting for it to come back on...

Okay, we're going to move the pond to a new spot instead!
I'd need a huge holding tank if I was building up over current pond, which is a waste of money. Better to dig a new hole w/trench.

Oh, Panda got tboned at the start. 😅
The great white shark & the Knight can be seen. Been a few days, so I was worried. Dark fish. Ugh. Lol.
Snake & Goromo also visible.
Husband ordered fancy koi food, so I've been testing it out. But the fish are pigs, lol.
