One of my other hobbies is raising Koi fish. We have a 3,000 gallon pond. I have around 17 Koi. I've raised most from babies. It's a challenging and rewarding hobby. I even learned to give a fish a shot. Not an easy task but necessary at times of illnesses. It is a very fun hobby. The pond is also in the back yard. We are lucky to have a 10,000 square foot lot to fit all these things in my yard! We used to be country but recently we're annexed into the city. which I don't like at all! Now I have to follow city rules. But we are still working on the back yard. When it's done it should be great!
