Nothing Was Belly-Up

Nick and I went to the store yesterday to buy livestock for the backyard pond. (Or, as they would say on HGTV, the "Water Feature.") We bought two tiny koi, a Fantail Comet, a Calico Comet, and a bunch of tiny "fish seeds."

As of this morning, I have seen the calico, the fantail, and at least one of the koi. It may have been both of the koi but cannot tell them apart yet. There are a bunch of the fish seeds swimming around. It doesn't look as if any of them have bought the (fish) farm over the night.

The water is a bit (bit?) on the cold side, but I think they will make it.

I'd have fish in my pond, but a Great Blue Heron visits it regulary and strips it of any living thing. So I just do plants.
