Congrats on finally getting a vid to upload. Much better than still pics. Nice!
Thanks!
I agree there's nothing like a video, too bad I'm stuck with poor quality now that it's cold and the fish are staying low

Did you take it from a cell hold the cell sideways so you can get a full pic .That could be why youtube had a problem with it .I have seen others say that about cell phone uploads
Thanks for the tip, I'll try doing it next time
The other video was taken the same as this one just a little longer, not sure why that one did not work out

@Gemma nice video, your fish are so active and I have no clue on using a phone for videos.

My fish are definitely not good candidates for a zen video!
I love it that they're are so active but, add that to the wind, the reflections and the fast moving water and it gets hard to really see them....I'm hoping to make better videos next year, but for now I'm happy to have at least this video so that I can compare their growth rate :)

I take mine with my camera and I think it uploads a little easier .But at least you got it to upload .I think after the first one I did youtube figure it out and each one has gotten easier .Great looking fish .

You can trim the you tube, takes a bit for it to process, but that way you can cut out the beginning or end if you wish to.

trimming may alter the already bad quality of the video (happens to video trimmed to upload in e-mails) ..anyway I uploaded that video for my personal use so it's ok :)

What type of netting do you use? It looks more rigid as opposed to flimsy. Love the video and can't believe how green things still look and that you have flowers! We had very cold temps the other night and everything got nipped. Also, my fish are not nearly as active as yours!

Trimming the you tube does is just cutting of the beginning or end, it does not mess with the quality.

The netting is coated steel mesh! It cost more but it's worth every penny ... it's very durable, easy to remove and put back and doesn't sink in the water when animals run across it

Lol you see flowers cause that video isn't the one I just made (that one didn't upload) this video I made a month ago for my sister, she likes koi but can't have any so she follows mine

Good to know, thank you! :)

My husband ordered the 8' long sheets through one of his work supplier, I think you can find them online but if they come in a roll it's not as thick as the one we used....I can ask him more details and where one can find this mesh if you're interested

@Tula and @cas The mesh is called:
1 1/2" x 1 1/2" square PVC coated steel wire mesh
12 gauge thickness
4'x8' sheet
It is used for robot guarding
He said if he lived in Ohio, he'd probably check Frame World or Flodraulics (RHM Fluid Power Inc.)

You might be able to get it online but keep that 12 gauge thickness in mind.
We bent the 2 sides to make it sturdier and if you get the 1" square (opposed to the 1 1/2 ) it's even sturdier

I hope this help! :)
