i think i got some sort of koi..........no pics >:(

6 posts in this topic

i got a fish out of the cannon river the other day that i believe was some sort of koi.

its sides were golden like normal, but it had patches of peach and bright red on its stomache and gills and its back was almost purple.

no pictures beacuse my dad had the camera with him (he was in a completely different part of the river mad) and i wanted to get the fish back as soon as possible.

anyone ever see this?????

I have seen koi in a couple lakes where I fish, and am still trying to catch them. One's white with orange spots, the other one is black and gold. They were probably illegally stocked, or they were the offspring of illegally stocked fish. I think that they are the same species as common carp, but with a long pedigree of selective breeding. Yes, it's quite possible that you caught a koi.

It was probably some type of Koi, probably from someone who bought one for a fish tank or outdoor pond and didn't want it anymore. Koi are basically regular scaled common carp bred in fancy colors. Rumor has it when these fish breed in the wild (if they make it...their bright color leaves them open to predators) after a generation or 2 they revert back to the normal bronze color of common carp.

    • Bureaucrate-   Correctly me if I'm wrong, weren't you a huge advocate against AIS lawd and allowing the DNR to pull over fishermen and boats for an inspection? But you are okay with them pulling over deer hunters?    Sounds like anything they do, you are against. If they said black, you'd say white...

    • Same circuit as the freezer?!! Oh no no no......!!! They kick in at the same time, and  *TRIP* Always have the pump on a separate circuit!!  As mentioned, GFCI is what code calls for, but sometimes dampness will pop one, rare, but I've seen it happen. I nixed the GFCI on mine when I ran a separate circuit for just the pump. That should solve your problem.

    • Well you can't drink all day if you don't start in the morning.

    • Ok I'll save you from dying. Where can i pick it up? 
    • I use to work on all aluminum body fire trucks.  The only screw, bolt, washer, or nut that we would use was stainless steel as the by using anything else will allow electrolysis to start from dissimilar metals and corrode.  Only problem was the strength of the SS is not as high as regular steel.  Also if you are using SS, i would only use bees wax as a lube.  I use to buy it in a block, and just rub the threads on the screw before putting in the hole.  If you don't, you may find that the threads gall up and strip out.  Then you have issues cause it can be tough to drill out a broken SS screw.  If you have a bunch to do, i found that a combination drill/tap was very useful.  It will drill the hole and tap at one shot.  Here is what they look like.  Good luck. http://www.graybar.com/store/en/gb/combination-drill-tap-bits-22082167?cm_mmc=pla:google-_-googleshopping-_-gb5349-_-22082167&utm_source=google&utm_term=&utm_campaign=Graybar>PLA>Category&utm_medium=cpc&utm_content=fto6JW9w|pcrid|49843833890|pkw||pmt|&gclid=CPzt0MP72tACFYKSfgodC4MH_g
