Yes, more pics & videos! Question though... What is an SVR? Ranchu? It's gorgeous.

SVR is "side view ranchu" meaning a ranchu with physical characteristics that make it best viewed from the side (like in an aquarium). A TVR is a "top view ranchu" which are better viewed from the top like in a pond :)

Indeed, TVR is the 'original' Ranchu bred by the Japanese out of a Chinese lionhead/ goosehead/ tigerhead. It is higher quality due to very selective breeding, very expensive and hard to get.

Oh my stars those fish are amazing. The hump on the red and white and the coloration of the ryukin. I can't get enough. Can't wait for a video!

The shubunkin we had swimming in our pond. We gave it away to my girlfriends' parents. It is now swimming in a much larger pond :)

I like your fish, but I think some of them might be apples in fish costumes they're that big and round! :goldfish:

Your fish have grown well in such a short space of time! What sort of filtration are you running on the pond?

I have a 2" pipe diagonally on the bottom with 1/2" holes on all sides over the lenght of it. From there it goes to a pressurefilter outside the pond, below the waterline. After the filter comes a 2000 Gallon/hour pump. Then a plantfilter with +/- 10 Gallons of biorock and substrate and plants ofcourse.

I want to supplement this set-up with another 1200 Gallon pump that I have or with a streamer to keep the bottom free of debris.
