I have been told that Koi love mud ponds.

I hope 10 pounds of hydrated lime in that puddle was enough to ensure a kill. There were a lot of BG under 2-3" still in there that I didn't net out. I just threw the powder all over the top, and then stirred it with a landscape rake. There was only 200-300 gallons left, and it was super clear after a couple of hours.

Anyway, I put the five Koi in my renovated pond. I don't think they will reproduce because of the LMB.

I believe a Koi is similar to a carp but just colored. So that would make sense.

With the recent switch to near freezing nights the water temp has dropped to 58 degrees and the BG have basically stopped feeding so I've turned off the aeration until Spring. I will leave the fountain running in order to keep a hole in the ice when it forms.

Who knows, maybe we'll see another ice volcano if the predictions for a cold Winter hold up.

Checked pond temp, it's warmed up to 56. I also fished a little bit, caught one little RES and one big GSH.
