New, 7 comments

It would seem Philadelphia's role in the school play about climate change is to play the harbinger of doom this winter. It's unfortunate for the fate of the human species but great news for people who are very serious about KOI PONDS. Many real estate listings, do, in fact, put those words in all caps, perhaps thinking that KOI POND aficionados are textually deaf. At any rate, we thought we'd grab a few good KOI POND listings and give you some options.
