koi pond storm preparation what you need to know 2018

koi pond storm preparation

First off, take time to breathe. You pride and joys are probably fine. They may be somewhat traumatized by the whole experience, but that would be any pet caught in an unusual situation.

Unless extreme damage was done, their health probably is not an
an issue, but their home may be in need of some repairs.

You may have been completely prepared for the storm, or the storm may have taken you by complete surprise.

Whatever the case may be, you must jump into action as soon as
you physically can to ensure that no further damage is done to your pond.

First, you must undo all of your storm precautions to survey the possible damage.

If you netted your pond, clear as much debris off the net as possible and remove the netting.

Once you removed the netting you will be able to survey the damage and the condition that your fish are in.

If high waters were expected and your sand bagged the area around
you pond, as long as the water level is normal, remove all sand bags so that you can easily access your pond.

Do not get discouraged if things seem out of place, and it may not be as bad as it originally looks.

Once you have removed all netting and other precautions, take time to look at the area.

If any debris is present, remove it by skimming and netting. If plants or decorations are uprooted or out of place, replace them to their rightful area.

If you find major damage to your pond, it is important to remove your Koi as soon as possible.

Proper bagging and transporting techniques may be needed if the
damage done will take a large amount of time to fix, but there are
several temporary options available if damage can be fixed quickly.

You may want to consider using a children’s pool to house your Koi.

If nothing is available at the time, get into contact with your local
pet store or zoo, as they may have program available to help you house your Koi until maintenance can be done.

Once you have decided that only small repairs are needed, then you must focus on the water quality.

You water may seem cloudy or murky due to the storm and the amount of extra water from rainfall.

If the storm lasted for a long amount of time, you may be facing ammonia issues as well.

Test your water for Nitrates. If Nitrates are present, add the proper amount of salt to the water.

Typically you would add 3/4 to one pound of salt per 100 gallons of water.

But, if your fish are especially shocked by the situation, or seem to
have sustained any type of injuries, it may be a good idea to add more.

If you have plants in your pond, it may be a good idea to remove them before adding the salt into the water.

Your fish should be the most important issue at this point, not your plants.

If you are having KH issues (especially if it is below 100) you will want to add baking soda to your pond.

Typically you can add 1 cup of unpacked baking soda per 1000 gallons of water.

This will protect your pond from a future pH crash.

Here is David Pickering post

Yes, I was out fishing on Monday, but it was not for stripers. Fishing anywhere along saltwater on October 29 was simply impossible today due to the enormous surf, high tides, wild winds, and closed roads.

As most of you know, I have made a career out of fishing in nasty weather in both saltwater and freshwater. So, when I knew we were in for a real bad day with hurricane winds and driving rain, I just had to get out fishing. And, the best bet today would be to fish for carp in a protected spot in freshwater. The three largest carp I have ever caught (36 lbs., 36 lbs. 8 oz, and 40 lbs. 8 oz) were all taken on stormy and nasty days that were similar, though not as severe as this. I will tell you that carp just love this weather and usually go on a feeding binge during these events. It was last year during a big storm that I landed the biggest freshwater fish ever taken in Rhode Island waters, a 36 lb. common carp.

During Hurricane Sandy I was in a very safe spot to fish, away from blowing trees and debris as safety is always a concern on these types of days. In fact, the wind was at my back and I had a great view of the storm while watching my rods. The rain was coming down horizontally in sheets and the wind was blowing the trees in the distance sideways as branches were coming down.

And, yes, the carp were hitting as I expected they would. The first fish I landed was a 12 lb. common. Next, was a 20 lb. common carp. Next fish was the surprise of the fall for me. It was a large mirror koi that was a bright red with black spots all over it. It was a rare gorgeous fish, and this fish was only the second koi I have ever landed! Finally, the day ended with a 21 lb. common. All the fish fell for pineapple-flavored Pescaviva fished on a hair-rigged hook and fished ahead of an oatmeal-based method ball.

With fully charged seas and rough and nasty weather expected for the next few days, I will keep my attention geared to freshwater, where I know I can fish. It might be upwards of a week before the ocean clears up and striper fishing resumes.

Here is also a sad story about koi lost in hurricane

Hurricane causes lost Koi

By Karen Pattist

Laura Irish of Middleburg, FL lost her Koi fish during Hurricane Irma. You won’t believe how she found one of them. Story from the local newspaper below.

In some ways, it’s another story stemming from Hurricane Irma, but it really starts about five years ago. Laura and her husband Joel have lived on their Scenic Drive property for about eight years. After nearly losing their house to Tropical Storm Debbie in June 2012, they decided to build a new, higher house on the same parcel, which backs out onto Black Creek.

“Built this house a lot higher, probably six feet higher,” as Laura began the story on Friday, talking with First Coast News.

The couple currently has four hens, three dogs, and a rescue cat, but their menagerie expanded less than a year ago after they discovered a natural spring next to their driveway. They decided to build a Koi pond, knowing the constant flow of pristine water would mean added beauty with minimal maintenance, eventually stocking the pond – complete with waterfall – with 17 Koi fish and a turtle.

“Super healthy,” she described the fish, “I mean, most of them are about this big,” she said, holding her hands about a foot apart.

Then came Irma. Laura figured that the creek would rise.

It did, not just the roughly 14 feet to the driveway and Koi pond, but another 9 feet, almost enough to reach the sub-floor of the elevated home.

“Part of our prep was to put a net over my Koi pond,” Laura said, having figured the netting would keep the fish and turtle in their home.

It didn’t. Several days after the water ebbed, the Irishes removed the debris-laden mesh.

“So, finally we managed to get the net off and looked in. And, nothing, nothing left,” she said with a sigh.

All seemed lost. In this rural area where mountains of waterlogged possessions still line the road, awaiting pickup, it’s hard to figure that any of the fish would have survived wherever nature left them. It’s unfathomable to imagine that any would have been found, but one of them was, several days later, when a friend came by.

“He goes, ‘You’re not going to believe this but there’s a Koi in a swimming pool two blocks over.’ And I said, ‘That’s got to be my Koi’,” Laura said.

Indeed the Koi had somehow floated and swum across at least a quarter-mile of road, forest, and other waterways, ending its hurricane-driven journey inside the in-ground pool at a home on Laurel Road.

Laura and Joel know the family who lives at that home. “So, we went and looked at it, and sure enough it was Dreamsicle,” she said, identifying the fish by name.

 

what happens to fish during a hurricane

Fish and other ocean creatures face deadly conditions during a hurricane— sometimes the extreme weather strands them on land or far out at sea.

Hurricanes can generate massive waves, so most sea creatures — including dolphins, whales, and sharks — avoid the rough surface water and swim to calmer seas

How does a hurricane affect fishing?

How does a hurricane affect marine life? Larger marine animals such as sharks seem to be barely affected.

They can detect tiny changes in pressure as larger waves at the surface approach, as well as the reduced surface pressure associated with the storm itself, and they also swim deeper or leave the area.

Do fish survive hurricanes?

Hurricanes can be death sentences for coral and sea creatures that are territorial, meaning they won’t leave their homes to flee to safety, or for creatures that are slow swimmers, such as the seahorse, researchers told Live Science. Other animals, such as sharks and some fish, simply swim out of danger’s way.

how to build a koi pond made up of tarpaulin fish pond (trapal)

how to build a koi pond. (trapal pond)is the Favorite choice of poor man’s koi fish keeper and koi fish breeders here in the Philippines.

It is easy to build though it won’t last long at least you can enjoy using it for years if proper maintenance and care are done.

Pro Tip on how to make your Trapal koi pond last long.

  • Make sure it will not have direct sunlight install roofing to your trapal koi pond the best roofing material is plastic cover in order for the sunlight can penetrate but will not damage the trapal koi pond.
  • If possible the koi pond should be dug not above the ground it will protect the trapal koi pond from sun damage and unstable temperature that will make it deteriorate fast
  • Make sure that the water level should be at the topmost level of the pond the water protect it from harmful sunlight rays that will deteriorate it faster.

Here is another video of my trapal koi pond that I built with bamboo frame.

Here below is the photo of trapal that are used as pond liner for most koi keepers and other fish keepers in the Philippines.

How to build trapal koi pond

  1. Build the trapal koi pond frame it is up to you what materials are you going to use bamboo or wood. You can also dig the ground if you prefer not to build trapal koi pond frame. I highly recommend this since it will make your trapal last longer than raised koi pond design.
  2. After you are done with the frame or dug a hole in the ground check the grounds if there are any sharp objects like stones, nails, roots of the trees etc and then add protection like carton or newspaper.
  3. Now layout the trapal in the frame or earthen hole koi pond fold each edge to ensure that there are no sides that are stretching
  4. After they are now in place secure them with u nails to stick them if you are using bamboo or wood frame for the earthen koi pond place stones to each edge to hold the trapal.
  5. add water and then install also your filtration system my suggestion is used airlift filtration system it is cheaper in power consumption, your safe for any electrical shock and does not clog up like the submersible pump.
  6. After your filtration system is installed run it for a week before adding your koi fish.

Here is the video on how to properly fold the edges of the trapal to make it smooth and no hanging parts on its side watch here

Here is a video of a simple demonstration how the airlift pump works you can google to find designs in airlift filtration system in the meantime check out my video below

buhi water less live fish transport technology

buhi water less live fish transport technology

I was wondering if this technology is still being practice in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

I personally have seen this display at Buglasan festival way back early 2000.

I think the Filipino inventor of this technology is a Filipino from Siquijor.

I tried searching the net to find any article that featured this technology since I am interested to learn this since it will be useful in my koi fish business transporting koi fish from distant places.

So I came upon on this site https://www.worldngayon.com/2012/07/waterless-live-fish-transport/ This was posted wayback in 2012. I was hoping that the contact information of the inventor here is still working.

Here’s the article below

Transporting live fish possible? Yes, it’s not magic but through hibernation. This is what the multi-awarded Filipino Scientist Bonifacio “Boni” Comandante Jr. said of transporting live fishes for many hours without water such as grouper, tiger prawn, shrimps, snapper, seabass, tilapia, pompano, milkfish, shellfish and crabs by using what he calls the “Buhi Waterless Live Fish Transport Technology”. He further said that given the favorable conditions of its environment (which is his trade secret), fishes hibernate or simply “sleeps” and then quickly awakes once brought back to water.

Waterless live fish transport technology
This waterless live fish transport technology promises to generate huge savings for the cost of live fish shipment where it will eliminate the use of water which consists of 75% of the weight, improve the survival and appearance of fishes in tanks, save on fresh fish shipment (50% on weight of ice), better fish meat quality in taste and appearance and minimize stress and prevent onset of Rigor Mortis or stiffening of the flesh.

This world-class inventor from Siquijor province even successfully tested the waterless live fish technology on salmon (10 to 12 hours of transport time), abalone (14 to 18 hours) and yellowfin tuna in his research works in Australia.

As president of Buhi Marine Worldwide Suply, Inc., his list of clients in the country includes Saranggani Farms, Vitarich and Century PG. His company provides service for live fish transport without water.

BFAR National Director Malcolm I. Sarmiento, Jr, said that this Waterless live fish transport technology is a major breakthrough for the fisheries sector having witnessed it with his own eyes although he said that continuous tests will be conducted to ensure that no harmful residues are found. The initial laboratory tests of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in validating this technology including necropsy and hispathology showed no traces of toxins or abnormalities on the fishes.

Moreover, BFAR Regional Director Dennis del Socorro intends to tie-up with Mr. Comandante’s technological innovations to be tested and introduced in Bicol Region. They made this agreement when they met recently when the latter presented his technology with Bicolano researchers and fisherfolk in Albay and Camarines Sur respectively.

Comandante is an Agricultural Engineer (2nd placer in the Licensure Exam) from University of the Philippines and holds Masters Degree in Economics from Asian Social Institute(ASI) and Costal Resources Management from Siliman University. He is also a candidate for PhD in Marine Biology and currently taking up PhD in Applied Cosmic Anthropology.

Among the awards he reaped for his innovations are: Finalist in the World Bank Development Market Place in Washington D.C., USA (2007); Winner at the Philippine Emerging Start-ups Open Biz Plan Challenge (2007); Winner at the World Bank Development Panibagong Paraan in Manila (2006); Pillar of Agricultural Development Award by the Department of Agriculture (2006); Inventor’s Award by the Galing Pilipino Movement (2006); Best International Business Award by the University of San Francisco USA (2005); Outstanding Creative Research Award by the Department of Science and Technology (2005); and Innovations Award by the Department of Trade and Industry (2005). He was also featured in the Go Negosyo Book of 2007 as one of the 50 Successful Filipino Entrepreneurs with inspiring stories. On June 6-9, 2009 he will participate as contestant on a research paper competition at the International Institute on Food Technologists in Anaheim, California, USA with his research work on Innovations for Philippine Hand Line Tuna Fishermen and the Sashimi Trade.

What to Wear to a Garden Party

 

Few events are more enjoyable than a garden party. There is no better way to spend a day than in a beautiful setting, under the summer sun and surrounded by your loved ones.

However, choosing the perfect outfit can be difficult, as you will not want to be either over- or underdressed. For help selecting the right look, read the following advice on what to wear to a garden party.

Keep it Casual

Most garden parties don’t come with a strict dress code; however, most people choose to keep it casual. For example, you can wear everything from a pretty floral t shirt paired with and stylish plus size jeans and sandals to a stylish summer dress or a pair of shorts. The choice is yours.

Stay Cool with Lighter Colors

Leave the dark hues at home when attending a garden party. Not only will you stand out for the wrong reasons, but it can increase your body temperature. Instead, wear lighter colors that will keep you cool throughout the outdoor party. For example, white hues, pastel shades, and primary colors are an ideal choice and will perfectly complement the season.

Blend in with a Floral Print

To perfectly blend in with the flowers, plants and a koi pond, you should wear floral to a garden party. A floral summer dress can be a pretty, casual option that suits the event and the print is on trend almost every spring/summer season.

A floral dress can also look effortlessly stylish when paired with:

  • Sandals
  • Wedges
  • Kitten heels
  • Flats

Remain Comfortable with Flowing Fabrics

The last thing you will want is to feel uncomfortable under the intense sun. Ensure you don’t feel more than a little toasty by adorning loose, flowing fabrics, so you will feel comfortable when mixing with friends or family members throughout the party. If you don’t, it could ruin all your fun, as you might be tempted to go back indoors or head home.

Protect Your Eyesight with Sunglasses

It can be easy to neglect your eyesight when in the sun, as you might be busy talking to others, dancing to music or helping to fire up a delicious BBQ. For this reason, you should try to wear a stylish pair of sunglasses as much as possible throughout the garden party, which can prevent damage to your vision and can complement any spring/summer outfit.

Shield Your Skin with an SPF

It is, of course, important to look beyond your wardrobe when attending a garden party, as you must shield your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. In addition to picking the perfect outfit and perfecting your hair for the garden party, you also should apply an SPF of 30+, which can prevent painful sunburn and permanent skin damage.

A garden party isn’t a formal affair. If you wear light, bright and comfortable clothing that complements your style, you are bound to blend in perfectly with the crowd and have a good time with your loved ones.

Create obstacles around the pond. Herons land around the perimeter of a pond and walk up to the water. …
Startle them with water. …
Provide hiding places for your fish. full article here from Pond Guy

Protecting koi from Herons. Herons are beautiful, majestic birds that have one major flaw.

Herons love to feast on Koi, and where better than to find Koi fish then an unattended Koi pond or garden?

When you first notice a Heron in your garden, you may not even think of these birds as a danger.

Herons are 2 or 3 feet tall, with an extremely large wingspan.

They appear to be extremely graceful until you realize that the
beautiful sight you were just looking at could have potentially been a thief caught in the act.

If you noticed that your fish are missing in action, chances are a Heron is to blame.

You may even notice large gaping holes in the sides of your Koi.

This happens when a Heron attempts to catch one of your Koi fish, but does not get a good grip on it.

The other will notice their Koi laying on the lawn several feet away
from the pond, which is the result of a Heron dropping the Koi after removing it from the pond.

While nothing can completely stop this from happening, you can
do a few things to detour Herons from eating your pride stock of Koi.

While there are many types of technical equipment available to
attempt to detour Herons, you will quickly find that these types of
detours will only work for a small amount of time.

Protecting koi Some pond owners place a fake plastic Heron into their garden.

This is supposed to detour another Heron from landing there.

This works for parts of the season until the mating season comes.

Herons will be more likely to land near your plastic Heron when they are looking for a mate.

Various other types of equipment attempt to detour Herons by causing them discomfort.

This only works until the Heron get used to it, or just finds a way around it.

The only way to protect your Koi is by watching out for them.

A few simple things will not prevent Heron from visiting your
pond, but it will greatly reduce the presence of them.

Constantly change your routine. Herons are smart and know when you will typically be present.

Visiting your pond frequently at various times during the day will
greatly increase the chance that you will catch the Heron in action.

If you are unable to vary your routine, you may consider enlisting others to visit your pond as well.

Older, trustworthy children in the neighborhood may delight in
visiting your pond at various times of the day.

Giving them permission to visit whenever they want will allow
others to visit when you are unable too.

If you catch a Heron in the act, make as much noise and frighten the Heron as much as you physically can.

Shout, yell, throw things, or whatever you feel will scare the Heron.

The more frightened the Heron is, the less chance he is to return anytime soon.

Protecting koi Create a hiding place in your pond for your Koi fish.

More natural Koi pond owners have noticed that after a Heron
attacks a pond, it may seem that the Heron has got all the fish, only
to notice that the Koi start appearing from strange hiding places once the scare is over.

If you purposely provide a place for your Koi to hide in the event of
an attack, you greatly reduce the amount of fish that a Heron will leave with.

Do not worry about your Koi hiding from you, as they should know and trust that you will not hurt (or eat) them.

Do not restock your pond right away in the event of a Heron attack. Waiting to restock may send the Heron searching for new feeding grounds
