3/15/2013 The cameras will be off
line while we do a major spring cleaning in the pond
which will make the water very dirty and very hard to
see the fish. Check back in a couple of days.
IF you do not see the live streams
above, it is dark here in NC. I turn the cameras
off at dark and back on in the morning.

Below is a photo a customer in MI sent that she took the
photo of the wide screen TV while the underwater camera was on. Neat,
The above photo was taken by Judy of Royal Oak Michigan.
What you are seeing is a photo of her 50" TV! She
took the photo of her TV to show me how great the video
from her new camera works! Amazing quality, don't
you agree? Because Judy lives where her pond freezes in
the winter, she will never again wonder what her fish
are doing under the ice.
|The live streaming koi camera
is turned off at dark and back on in the morning so if nothing is happening check the time. I am in EST. Also check your firewall because a firewall may keep the cams from playing.|

Under Water Pond Camera to
Our 15,000 gallon waterways consist of 3 ponds and 6 major waterfalls.
We designed the pond so that the 3 ponds can run together or separately.
Some of the highlights of the fish you will see while watching the camera are the biggest fish; a Hi Utsuri (red and black) koi named "Blaze". She suffers from an acute case of Alpha Koi - believing she's the Queen Matriarch in our pond. She's 26" tail to tiara and is the star of the show, or so at least she thinks so..... sometimes a little snobbish probably in part for having impeccable manners - more so than most Koi which probably in part comes from having been born to an upper- koi-class family and then for having been shipped to an all female finishing school and trained to eat from her little table (featured on the front page).
Then there's "Utsee" she is a black and white Shiro Utsuri. She is about 24 inches and is the only fish that Rich has bought for the pond (thankfully Rich had found the way to curb Koi obsession - however he has yet to fill me in on 'that' little secret).
"Sunny", is a yellow (go figure) Yamabuki butterfly. Always positive disposition and never without a smile -- she is the first fish I ever bought and come hell and high-waters -- I have had her about 8 years. Sunny is about 26 inches long also and puts a 'bright spot' in my pond, if not my day.
There are 2 Doitsu Showa; "Flash" (because when we first got him he had this bad habit of wearing nothing under the trench coat, and "Patches", because before we got her she was a blithering barmaid prone to scrapping; cat (fish) fights - both are about 20 inches each and give adage to the old cliché - "there's someone for everybody."
"Cleopatra" is a Platinum Doitsu (white scale-less) and is about 24 inches long. Arrogant little thing liable to have a hissey fit at the drop of a misplaced Koi pellet but.... she did win 1st place at the Koi show in 2000 so we try to overlook the temper tantrums.
"Zorro" is the sexy black male (sans cape) butterfly koi in the pond. I have a waiting list of those who want a fish just like him. He is a little hard to see because he is all black and sometimes looks like a shadow swimming in the pond. Zorro is a whopping 20 fat inches.
And of course, 'lastly but not 'leastly' there is "Lucky" whose life I saved when he got sucked into a pump a few years ago.... (don't ask what he was doing!) His back was broken in 2 places so if you see a 15-inch yellow butterfly swimming a little sideways-crooked -- meet Lucky. He did make some pretty babies this past spring though.
There are about 30 other larger fish, 20 inches to 30 inches in the pond - the names and personalities we won't bore you with for now. The best viewing time of course is during the day light hours EST because that is when the fish are most active.
Thanks for stopping by.
