A work-placement-y interlude

Nothing much doing really – still at work placement; still much of the same.

So I thought I’d share a little of what I’ve been able to see this week, and the peek into the world of koi farming I’ve had.

Suzie the fry sorter

Up to seven people sit round this homemade contraption and use the suction to siphon fry, thereby dividing what will be grown on and what will be sold.

Central tube of a filter

Homemade filters can be cheaper and more effective as well as easier to maintain.


One of my favourite fish in the sales area – such a shame I have neither the pond nor the money to bring it home with me

There is a right way and a wrong way to wire a plug. This is the right way. The only right way. Apparently.

Chagoi (literally ‘brown koi’ though they may be anything from velvet to chocolate to ochre to yellow to oyster to nearly pink) are the friendliest.

The Impressionfishts

Fish can create a wonderful impressionist-style picture when you don’t really know what you’re doing with a camera in a low-light, fast-subject environment.

Last day tomorrow, then home to try to sort my life out.
