The new digs

This is Buzz. Hubbys BFF. He raises Koi and is to blame for me even having them in the first place. For my 39th birthday , he bought me fish, food, filter, pump etc....
He brought me the water lily and the cement bricks ( so the fish can hide) from his own pond.

He got them out of the tank and put them in this bucket, then he poured water from each tank back and forth for about an hour to get them acclimated.
See them at the bottom? They wouldn't swim out...


Yeah we're free! The Orange one is not named. Suggestions anyone? Spot is on the right. Spot is last remaining one of the original group we bought. HE used to have a huge spot on his head.

The three Amigos. Spot has the most gorgeous tail. long , flowy and colorful.
These fish are my babies. I feed them twice a day like clockwork. When I wake up in the morning they are lined up waiting for me. If I am too slow Spot will toss rocks at the glass.

Look at that fabulous tail !
We had to put bird netting over it because we live in a high raccoon traffic area.
See post here...


God forbid something happen to one of my fishies because of those pesky raccoons! Oh the horror! I hope they appreciate their new digs !!!

Very nice! You are inspiring me to get more damn fish, which cannot be good.

Stop it

Oh, they are so beautiful! I love your new pond! We are in the process of making one in our back yard (I say we and I haven't done a thing, it is Eric and Hayden's little project). I can't wait until it's done. Have a great day girl!

Hugs, Shar

Spot is so bling bling pretty! A name for the orange one: Fireball? Fluffy? Julius (get it? orange julius? lol!)

Great job on the tank. Your scaled friends look content.

Happy Birthday, JP!

They look totally happy...how nice to have them in the back yard. I'm sure they feel like when I let my chicks into the coop the first time...WoW is all my chicks could say! What would fish say? ;~)
