Large Yellow Koi Spawning

Large Yellow Koi Spawning

Large Yellow Koi Spawning today is first signs of koi spawning. Spawning usually begins early in the morning with the males aggressively chasing and nudging the female(s) around the shallows or edges of the pond. Like most fish, koi are egg layers, and once the female sheds the eggs they they will stick to whatever they come in contact with.

Raccoons dismantle P7000 Pond Fish Feeder

Raccoons dismantle P7000 Pond Fish Feeder. When I looked at the Koi Live Cam this morning I couldn’t figure out what all the mess was floating in the pond. Well the racoons has found the fish food in the P7000 Pond Fish Feeder and they took the spout off and flushed all the food into the pond.

I guess I need to get the trap and move these guys to another neighborhood.

Racoon Bandits are back!!
