Hi Clive,

Really sorry to read this ,don't know how the thieving B******* move stolen koi on maybe facebook or gumtree are worth checking.

If you have got photos I would post them on here at least then if members are offered them they will know.


Hope you catch them.


p.s. cctv systems are very sophisticated and quite inexpensive these days .They can be less than the cost of one koi, and be set to alarm or contact/view on your mobile etc.

Sorry to here this Clive , and very worrying I’m not far from you !!! The sad thing is the B*#*#*#s that stole them probably don’t know the first thing about koi or their welfare
Come over and see me and I will see if I can help you out with a few fish (FOC) to keep your pond running

What a lovely gesture on your part Baz.

Hope Clive posts some pictures and someone finds the koi and gets the B's.

Clive if you wish to post pics first resize them(MAX SIZE 640 x 480) or copy and resize if you wish to keep the original.
Then follow Jim's guide below.

"Go to edit profile (Just ABOVE Chat tab) - Picture uploader – BROWSE to Choose picture file – Double click on pic req – Upload - The picture should now be saved on your profile – If you now go to your post – or reply to any posts – click on insert pic your last 6 pics should show top left, click on the one required and it should now be in the post."

If the pic is too large it may not upload and needs to be resized to 640x480 pixels wide then it should load.

Wow that’s awful. Sorry to hear that. Some people are absolute wasters.
Yes post pictures on here and any other forum or Facebook group you can find. Make them too hot to handle. Also keep checking eBay, preloved and gumtree.

If you have problems you can email me images and I can sort them for you.

Very kind gesture from baz. Restores some of your faith in humanity.
