The date of today’s episode is 20th of July, 2010, and it’s been almost two months since I let loose a hundred and twenty-six koi. Now, everything still seemed to be going smoothly.
One challenge that I quickly discovered was that the wind took hold of the Koi feed and scattered it over a large area. That made it hard for the fish to pick it all up. Because of the sheer number of fish that I had in my possession, and the quantity of food I need to sustain them, I was pretty interested in making sure that they got hold of as much of the meal as possible. In this episode I will show you my solution for this problem.
And do remember - the goal of this channel is to give you guys such detailed updates on what it’s like to manage a pond like this, that it’ll be like owning it yourself – except without having to worry about hiring contractors, dealing with diseases, predators, or cold winters. This first episodes are reviews on what happened in 2010, and partly in 2011. Later on I want to focus more on what I’ve done with the pond and the surrounding landscape the last few years – and not least – what remains to be done! As the series goes on I will be documenting and taking you guys with me on all of the trials of keeping a pond of this size.
Next time on the One-Million-Gallon Koi Pond, suspicions of something gone wrong turns out to be good news. Look carfeully at the last few clips, and you may get a tip :)
