Old Charlotte Rescue

On a nice and hot sunny Sunday, six adventurers set out with one goal in mind, rescue some fish (and have fun).  We succeeded in both.  A gentleman contacted Koi Netters and asked for help.  He was unable to care for his fish any longer and wanted them to go to a good home.  This is where we came in.  According to the owner, there were many large fish in the pond which included koi, goldfish and brim.  After pumping the pond down to a level where we could see the fish and better catch them, the rescue commenced.  The pond was about five feet deep in areas with a few different levels.  Of course, algae covered the entire liner and everyone prepared to watch fellow members slip and fall as they got into the pond.  Luckily,  from lessons learned from previous rescues, a few of the members brought waiters.  All total, nineteen fish were rescued.  This included nine large koi.  These were loaded into a mobile tank complete with air stones for the ride back to the quarantine tank.  As of this writing, many of the fish have already found good homes.
