Some unfortunate news today.
I went outside to feed my koi and seen this guy on the floor. And now he's gone😔 his name was yanni and was the first koi I've ever purchased. He's always been a jumper since I had got him but I never thought he would jump out the pond.
Really don't understand why he jumped. Study's say koi jump because there happy or its exploring or bad water quality but that can't be it because I test my water every day and all my ammonia and nitrite and nitrate levels are almost perfect.
Whatever the reason is he's gone now and will never be forgotten!
He was a beautiful KIN SHOWA and was favorited by all my family and friends!
R.I.P Yanni Bautista my first koi ever❤️ #koi#kinshowa#showa#koifish#koilife#pond#watergarden#kloubeckoi#restinpeace
I was cleaning my computer and came accidentally across the photos of this custom order - this was a pendant for some lady from Panama ordered by her husband. It is said that the word "Panama" translated from local language means "an abundance of trees, butterflies and fish". It was pretty a challenge to combine all that elements in one composition. It was also a lucky coincidence that I had 2 topaz stones precisely in the colors of the flag of Panama. I enjoy such orders full of symbols and meaning. 😌
Наткнулась случайно на фото интересного прошлогоднего заказа - муж заказал для своей жены из Панамы символичный кулон. Панама переводится с местного наречия что-то вроде "изобилие рыб, бабочек и деревьев". И, совершенно чудесным образом оказалось, что у меня есть два топаза в цветах флага Панамы. Очень люблю такие необычные заказы. 😊
