PARROTFEATHER FOR THE WATER GARDEN

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: February 21st, 2014 | 2 Comments

parrotfeather myriophyllum aquaticum

Parrotfeather! Half the fun of acquiring this water garden plant is the appeal of its name. Parrotfeather is a semi-emergent aquatic weed, unwelcome in most natural waterways, with the only trait slightly resembling the feathering of a parrot would be its green coloration; and that’s given that the parrot in question is a green one! This water garden plant looks a bit more like a soft green bottle brush, but the name Parrotfeather is much easier to market in the aquatic plant industry!

The Dojo got some mojo!

     The Dojo loach that is. Also known as the pond loach or oriental loach, but best known as the weather loach. The weather loach is an amazing fish that has had a relationship with mankind going back thousands of years; making it one of the oldest “domesticated” fish swimming this planet. The weather loach, or Misgurnus anguillicaudatus, has served mankind as a food fish, as an aquarium pet, and as a pond bottom feeder; but it is best known for its ability to predict weather!

ASAGI KOI, WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

By: Mike Gannon | Posted On: January 17th, 2014 | No Comments

asagikoi

    In today’s world of competitive koi shows the Asagi variety of koi is still ranking in the champion categories on a regular basis, across a wide spectrum of koi shows around the world. The Asagi even has very strong showings in the world class All Japan Koi Show. This is pretty impressive for the Asagi considering all the razzmatazz and hubbidydoo that surrounds many of the “newer” varieties of koi, all this new artwork/koi that has been created. With its long history making the Asagi the “original” ornamental carp, the artwork of the Asagi still stands the test of time as the nishikigoi hobby heads towards its 200 year mark.
