Very interesting pen. I would love to see more detail on fish skin portion of the pen. I REALLY like your pond. It is beautiful with a very nice shape and lots of nice plants. THanks for sharing.

Louie,

Where did you really get the skin? I know you are joking on catching one of your fish and skinning it! No pond owner would do such a thing! I also know what Koi skin looks like since I have shot many of them while bowfishing and have skinned them hoping for a nice color but they were very plain once the scales were off.

Louie,

Nice lighting. Where did you buy that big main light you lit the pen with? Just kidding. Really nice pen and good photos. Oh, yes, the pond is not just any ol' puddle either. Way good!

Louie even enlarged there isn't a lot of scale detail like with a snake skin, but the pen is very pretty, and your Koi Pond is awesome, I'll bet it requires a lot of upkeep.

Ken thanks for your comments, actually pond at first was tough to balance now not that bad. It has 24,000 gallons, 70 koi fish bull frogs jumbo size tons of Tad pole.lizard frogs 50ftx36 ft
The fish skin on koi fish is kinda smooth with some texture.

curtis I didn't think koi fish were down in Texas. Are you saying you shoot bow in a pond?You must have one heck cement pond. Maybe you are getting it mix with southern fish.Have you try to glue fish skin? If so what did you use?

The pen is beautiful and your pond is awesome. Where do you find all the time to keep things up? I'm sure the pond is a lot of work.
