baby koi

Well it’s amazing what you can find in the pond when the water clears up. Some things are not so fun like the stubborn clumps of string algae and acorn tops the squirrels keep shaking into the pond. The really nice thing is that the koi actually look prettier in the clearer water and I can see them even when they are cruising around the bottom. But even better is that the clearer pond let me catch a glimpse of two new koi today. A few thousand eggs one month ago and two koi fry have survived. I’m excited to see what these pond mutts will eventually look like – I believe the parents were Momochan and Takuan. Here’s a blurry photo of one of the baby koi. Need to get the Go-Pro into the water…IMG_1720
