LOL Charles....that guy is a HOOT....we did a indie movie with a friend of ours last fall and winter...I am Hiram Hammerhead, Bernice is my wife...Awgo is one of our 3 inbred sons as Bernice and I are actually brother and sister...we abduct young hotties and since Bernice is barren from being so old...we breed them...take the babies and kill the hotties and eat them...we live in the woods you see and use the ruse of 'Free Muscadine Wine" to get hapless strangers to our property...and well...you know what happens next...a maul to the head or a scythe to the chest....remains go in the bonfire....it was lots of fun and that was the first installment...there are 4 more to follow...and in our movies, unlike standard hollywood fare, the bad guys kill everybody and don't get stopped....I will look for a full length version on the net to share later , but for now, here is what you get this is one of the songs for the movie.and the precursor to the film to introduce the main characters... .......Billy
Pretty kool man. That is quite a storyline and you guys definitely pull it off. You're quite a character.
I know of a couple of good guys and interesting looking characters around here that could join the acting crew.
Across the pond welcome to another koi keeper welcome from the UK. ALLINKDUP hope we can pick your brain and you ours been at this hobby 27 years this year now .
I Take it from the Tatoo's you like bikes and Rock Music am I right ?

Yeah, I don't know what the the deal with how folk have to drive differently toward folk who drives motorcycles or even trucks. It aggravates the hell out of me whenever folk don't drive couteously.
Hey man, very awesome tile work. Some time ago when I was doing a bit of research on tile in a pond, I came across a thread of yours that i've bookmarks, koi and lily shower floor. Very kool man. I have a question for ya.
Instead of moraring the rock on the bottom of my little bottom, I was thinking of using a pebble looking tile and not more it in place on the pond floor.
If not mortared in, do you think or have you heard of the tile some how soaking up or disintegrating when fully submerged in pond water like this ??
There was a thread on KP a while back where someone was asking about tiling the drip edge for their waterfall...i told them that unless you have a solid substrate (concrete) to bond to, the stone and mortar would just crack up...if you don't mortar it in then you get mulm and lots of other funk under the stone and that gives off the rotten egg sulfur aroma of death, which, as you are fully aware, is bad for our fish...I am a firm believer in a mud bottom or a liner system...I will never do rocks in my bottoms again...there are certain mortars that are waterproof but a brutha would go broke on the install.....LOL.....btw i started 50 yellow corn plants today which will go in the ground,..about 90-100 beans, peas and okra, and 4 cherry tomatoes and 4 goliaths, 4 red beauty bells and 4 golden bells too...they are all in those plastic net pots in clay/grow mix in plastic flat containers...they will sit in the square containers in a small amount of water to germinate and to acclimate to living in the water of the a/p system....
The concern of the mortar cracking up is why I don't want to use mortar since I do not have a solid substrate. Ya mentioned to me back boarding some time ago. I was thinking of simply just gluing the tile to a backboard and keep the tile flush to each other, not mortaring them together, and going to use a little bit of marine silicone in the cracks. I am thinking this might give the tile enough flexibility and still stay together when I walk on it, since it will be the floor. This will be on top of my EPDM liner. Do ya think the type of back boarding I use makes a difference?? Would the back boarding have to be water proof or water resistant ??
I've never done much of anything with tile before so I am not familiar with it. When doing it like this, could the tile absorb the water causing deterioriation of the tile??
That's alot of plants man!! You sure do go big time. Who are the suppliers for your fingerlings?
a friend with a pet shop here because i give him koi when somebody says....come take these fish...i dont want the pond, etc....so he pretty much gets stuff for me at cost or for free with my wonderful bartering power...it is a place out of north florida...he orders fish in every week or two and shipping would be very minimal if any...I love Mr LaVelle...lol....70 cents isn't too bad for 2-3 inchers....I asked about the red tail catfish and the peacock bass fry....those were 6-15 each....
i know some lakes in south texas have peacocks in them that get pretty big...and you KNOW how big red tails get...i wonder how they taste and what their sexual maturity is...buy em once grow em up let em breed...voila...my own little piece of central/south america....i could use the extra tilapia overages for their food...like bream here with bass and catfish stocked ponds....
welcome and i only know I have fish ,nothing fancy I'm afraid .But then I just paid a couple of dollars for them 9 years ago .I really thought they would die on me but they made it and are laughing at me every time I feed them .2 of them are over 2 feet long .oh well they got me
Welcome allinkdup :wave: great set up ya got there! I would love to do the aquaponics with Talapia, but it doesn't stay warm enough here, and Im not willing to bring em' in doors But I'm working on plans for the next pond build, that will have native sunfish ( bluegill, crappie, etc..) and a bog to filter. Nothing like having a fish market in your back yard!
sissy it is all about what you want...everybody has different needs and wants...lol...I WANT expensive fish....I NEED to be happy with the not as expensive koi than what i want...hehe.....hello fishylove....i talked to a buddy this past w/end that will give me as many bream as i want...maybe i could grow a record size fish...lol...the tilapia will be soooo tasty this fall and winter....Billy
ALLINKDUP and I concur, beautiful fish you have there
What a hoot those video's of the Hammerheads and Muck Sticky! Nice fish you have there too!
j.w.....do you know who Muck is?????I run security for him at all of his local shows...some on the road shows as long as they're close to Memphis....I got pets and kids i can't leave unattended for too long....we just did a show on 4/20 at a bar on Beale Street I have bounced at for about 15 yrs..light show, confetti cannons, half naked dancing girls, a curtain swinging contortionist and a midget....his shows are a blast...I've known him about 19 yrs I have been working with M S for about 8 yrs now and met him @ a tat shop i used to work at when he was just a kid........BILLY
Billy, I bet ya got a few stories to tell.
In your AP system, have you thought about what you will do in case of a heavy rain? I was thinking of standpipes in the fish tanks, which to prevent them from overflowing.
as a matter of fact Charles..all 4 fish tubs are already plumbed with bulkheads from their previous life at the koi shop and I discussed that with someone else a couple days back....that will be my default till i get the greenhouse built around it...great minds think alike...LOL
Nope I never heard of him before Billy but looks like quite the fun character :biggrin:
he is definitely a very animated guy...he sings about lots of controversial subject matter and if you are easily offended he is not your kind of guy...if you have an open mind and like to be enlightened and want to have a good time, he is a very good inspiration for your day...."I'm not a heavy metal singer or a gangster rapper, I'm just a w&^d smoker singing songs on the crapper"..Mervous Thrifty...aka...Bofus Hockaloogie...aka...MUCK STICKY....lmao...Hopefully this won't garner any 'warning points" for me and my account.....BILLY
I watched the videos on your earlier post, great fun! I have not heard of Muck Sticky either but found the tune quite catchy and the video good fun.
I also took a look at your Facebook page, you do great tile work!
Did you do the stone wall, or is it something you want to do? That would be amazing to have as a yard backdrop.
