Since this is my first successful winter with Koi.....nine Koi in 3000 gallons.....but I am amazed at the fact they seemed not to lose any bulk.....in fact some of the smaller ones seemed to have grown some.... but maybe that’s just me. I know part of it if you notice my waterfall there is string algae and zero in the pond.....we have had four days of temperature in the 60’s and yesterday was 72...... but they are going to be disappointed high Friday is 37.....and if you notice my Lilies are sprouting up to.....

I'm glad your fish are doing good!
My ponds are still half frozen! In one pond I can see the fish are all at the bottom, active but slow, I'm a bit worried about the 4 koi in the new pond, one of them keeps swimming towards the top, I can see it under the ice, it could be a sign of illness....I hope not!

Happy to hear all is well :) Hubby was draining some water off the pond cover today and saw one of my 4 koi......it's hard to see them with the pond covered.
