Bill Layman here. I am Brady's dad and am married to his Mom Lora. We have two huskies to go along with all the Koi. I have been keeping water and Koi since the mid 90's. I say keeping water because the water is what keeps our finned friends happy and alive and without good water...well we know how that works out in the long run. Currently we have a 5000gal formal outdoor pond and a 2500gal indoor heated intex pool. My son for some reason has taken a serious liking to the Koi..and with him we have learned so much about the quality of them over the last few years.
I am on the board of the ZNA NWKG Club in Portland, Oregon. One of my varied duties is membership director. I'm also K.O.I. Certified Koi Keeper, and a K.O.I. Certified Show Water Quality Specialist.
