    Very nice Dee the mottley crew certainly look well and the water looks good too. They are loved and cared for and your pride and joys and thats what counts.

    Well done with the photos and thank you for sharing them with us.

    Mmmm Size hey? Well, previous owner reckons 3 n half thousand gallons.

    It is quite a good size as the deep end is nearly 6 foot. Not a practical shape for competetive Koi keeping though but i do think the fish enjoy exploring around through the different depths, round the island and under the waterfall etc. I've got block built filters hidden behind the foliage and plenty of air going in so have good water quality. Just need to get rid of all the damm blanketweed and fix a crack in the concrete lining of the pond and then am all set for a nice summer sitting watching my fishies at every chance i get!, lol

    Here's a video link i done tonight too:-

    Thanks Sheryl.

    Yes they may be a mixed bunch but i love wathcing them. i've really missed them over the winter!! lol

    The thing i want to know is........................ Can the experts pick out which ones were expensive good quality fish and which ones are just mutts? lol!

    I throw down the challenge. Anyone with a trained 'eye' for a good fish wanna give it a go?

    Clue:- I bought 2 Japanese ones, some English and some i think were malaysian and some i got from the prev owner and have no idea where they are from. Also please ignore the 4 or 5 goldfish and 1 shubunkin that also inhabit my pond!!

    Sorry Dee I can not see any others that would instantly
    say Japanese, you have a nice little Shiro which could be Japanese or English.

    Think the Shiro type was probably from english breeders as it was purchased from a small aquatics shop and can't imagine he would pay the money for Japanese. .

    The platinum ogon is English too.

    I will leave it to see if anyone else can spot the other Japanese, bought at the same time as the one you have correctly identified. (and not a million miles away from him either! )

    OK here is the answer...

    Post  Guest on Tue Apr 28, 2009 7:14 am

    I reckon you have all given up so here is the answer.

    The following 2 are Japanese, bought by me as tiddlers. You got the Goshiki right but I can't remember the name of the other one, the light orange one.

    It is the type that doesnt look like it has scales, it is smoothe. Can someone help me out here please? I was told it would grow to be a lovely fish, and apart from some speckling it has come on really well and is really nice. i think it has a cute puppy dog face!! lol (yes i am cracking up!)

    So here they are:-
