13 inches accumulated after a couple of days of snow, that was last week, like 4 inches the first day, than another 8 the next day then just like 1 the third day, not all in one day, but there was 13 inches on the ground at once! ( that was starting a couple of sundays ago)
Yup! I did just finish it in time!You finished the pond just in time, it looks awesome! What do you have in there?
Several factors determine a fish growth (water quality, DNA, food etc), it may or may not be that the pond was too small, I've seen larger koi in smaller than 160gl aquariums.Yup! I did just finish it in time!
I have two growth stunted koi, that have only grown and inch while being 2 years old, I bought them uneducated at first, and put them in a 160 gallon stock tank pond. and only now they have a good home, so since they are now two years with me and only 6 inches I am not sure if they will grow much more,
I would like to have a couple of nice big koi in there, We will hope! ( but also it would be cool to have some mini koi )Several factors determine a fish growth (water quality, DNA, food etc), it may or may not be that the pond was too small, I've seen larger koi in smaller than 160gl aquariums.
Years ago we bought 5 koi all from the same batch, 4 of them grew over 2', and one of them is still the size of a large shubunkin
I think your fish are still young and with proper care could surprise you...unless of course it's due to DNA
