Our Koi

I was passing by one time at Tiendesitas and saw a banner saying something like a Koi Festival that's happening there. What immediately came to my mind was to check if we still have enough fish food for our 3 koi fish at home which I fondly call as "Tito, Vic and Joey".

Actually we had been lucky to have been able to keep our fish in our small pond for such a long time. We would have some problem before in keeping the fish alive since we are no fish-pet experts. But then again we decided to just observe and play it by ear. Apart from finding the right kind of fish food that they would like and actually eat and making sure the chlorine level of the water is keep within bounds, I think it helps that our pond is a bit green and "dirty" so the fish can eat the green formations at the sides. It may be a bit different if they had been held at aquarium stands from PetSupplies. But then that would be another story.

Anyway, our koi fish is really a fantastic sight every morning. For reasons I can't explain, I feel hugged and happy whenever I see them. I really hope they stay happy and alive for a long long time.
