Sadly every weekend is not happy progress around our ponds. We have lost three of our koi and a fourth is looking rather iffy. My little koi fry also perished in a storm that battered the quarantine tank where some of them had hatched. (Truthfully, the aeration and pump might have been a little too strong for them as well).
So today the ponds and our koi were sources of stress instead of stress relief. The pond digger worked on the sump pump for the lower pond and hopefully we can get to putting some mulch down in the lower garden. I worked on the rocks for the upper pond’s waterfall and we just might finish that tomorrow.
We’re a little bummed out about our lost koi. Are koi sentient beings? I think so and feel bad we were not able to save them.
