yesterday our biggest Kio died. Silver bullet was marthas fish baby... and in trying to figure out just how old he was I think I am deciding about 12 years old. He was 29 inches long and 16 pounds. he was so big around and you cant really tell that from the one pic I managed to take but this fish baby was HUGE!
when we got him and the 5 other koi they were the size of my pinky finger... martha and I drove way out in south augusta to a place that no longer exists and picked out these 6 fish from the hundreds they had there and named them on the way home... its funny that this fish was a little silver colored streak that would dart all around the pond like a bullet
anyway we are down to 4 of the original 6 koi 4 fish that hatched here and one gold fish
