Acclimation time for the first two babies I got today, a blue matsuba butterfly and a doitsu kujaku.
I really hope they like their new home! I worry that they have nothing to eat in a brand new pond, and are too shy to come up if I try to feed them....but I had to buy them now, they were so much cheaper and that way I'll have several months before I had to introduce my existing fish, any health issue should be resolved by thenAh cute and they look so little in that huge pond! They must think they hit the jackpot!
I hope you're right about the bugs and worms, cause I tried the pellets, the water moves too fast they go straight to the skimmer
Thank you! Yes I got them from KTTW they showed up the next day, didn't seem to suffer the shipping, they went from the bag straight to exploring their new home, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will be fine, I love them already!Did you get those fish in the mail? Both fish are lovely ,but the long barbells on the butterfly koi make it extra pretty (i think). How do you manage to get anything else done, it's so hard to resist staring at New fish in a pond.
Thank you! Did you see the two potted Lily at the bottom of the plant tub? Do you think there's room for both? Do you anticipate the current to be too strong for those Lilies?Lovely!
Thank you so much!
lol I felt that way yesterday grooming the large ponds lilies. I still have 10 lilies to groom. The hot tub pond, the 1000 gallon pond. One jumped its pot, almost didn't think I would be able to grab and drag, it was darn heavy and less then a foot of roots out of the pot.Thank you!

This reminds me of you!
