I took pictures of them but right now I have to relax! 1 of the 25 died....Oh! when my grandpa went to the second troph guess what we found? A Fry!! That thing hasn't had fish in it for a year!!! My grandpa said that after he drains the pool he'll be putting large koi in it! ( dont worry its more than enough room to house koi!) I will post pics when I can! The koi are really fiesty!!
  5. Thanks! and I wont forget te pics! I hope you can get some koi!

  19. Ok, Just got back from my grandparents last night. Well, my grandpa keeps commons in his cow's water trophs ( I know those are horrible water conditions, but those fish are happy and healthy!) He even has a koi in one! My grandpa knows i like goldfish so he asked me before I left if i would pick him up 25 commons from the store. He also has this HUGE pool on his property that he's draining and might make it a huge pond! I shall enjoy picking up those little commons!
  20. I definitly DO NOT want the koko stick!! please dont hurt me! *lol
  21. They're so cute!!(I especially like migloo! )
  22. He's still scared of me so pics should come in a day of two!
  23. I would post pics right away accept.....1. He seems to be a little spastic right now*(dont want to freak him out more) 2. My dad doesnt feel like posting today, but I promise there will be pics!
  24. I know! Its like the first day or two us humans turn paronoid! (at least i know i do!) Fish just seem so delicate!, not like dogs or cats!
  25. Whoa! just had a scary moment! went in to check on him and he was sitting in the plant...not moving! so i walked up and all of a sudden he just spurts out!(thought he was dead for a second!) Also just noticed something odd...his tail is a little twisted...weird...it doesnt seem to affect him though!
