    Hi everybody, absolute noob here who has been spending the last few days soaking up all the information in this group. Just started up my pond so its currently going through the usual new pond syndrome. Currently I only have a couple of pond grade Kois to be the water tester till the pond is mature enough to house some of the Kois that all of you have got me drooling over with the pics and vids >:D<

    My pond measures 17 ft x 7 ft x 3 ft

    Nivek, welcome to the Koianswers FORUM. Looks like the aeration is insufficient, and please consider removing the potted plants in the pond........

    Sis Gerry, Not as active as Koikichi's from Klang valley but something to start with ;-)

    Bro Glifford, I'll be in YM maybe around 10 am. Initially just want to see my Koi in the mud pond but now got sales, wonder what will happen :-ss

    Bro Shukri, Mini group in Penang sounds good. Trying to gather Kichi's in Penang as there are many shy kichi's in Penang :-D . Imagine, my taman itself got almost 15 houses with pond but talking to one by one is challenging :-( .

    Bro Nivek, No problem if can't meet up this weekend. I normally go to YM every weekend. PM me when you are free, we can meet up.
