We had a busy day with the new koi. The pond digger has been doing a ton of work getting their new home ready. He decided to do a few modifications before they were released. Then he went to the hardware store and purchased a gazillion more pieces of things to re-do the filtration system for the 300 gallon tanks. (I think he actually enjoys rebuilding these different systems at least five times.) It’s been a bit chilly in the garage so the pond digger has had less than ideal conditions to work on indoor koi land.
Everything was ready for the new arrivals:
The new group of tosai arrived pretty active and seemed to enjoy the trickle bar that the pond digger had set up. Unlike the other koi I have, these tosai like to swim around at the surface. We put up a net immediately because a few of them were trying to escape during the first hour. We will be letting them settle down and feed them tomorrow evening as long as their water has warmed up past 52 degrees.
