Have you talked to Norm at Bridgeway?
That is a very nice koi and I'm sure they will get the price. Looking forward to seeing who is selling those for $50, sign me up.
Apparently they have been working on them for 18 years, would hope they have stabilized the colors by now.
This is from Mark Gardener's site that he has really updated and improved.511823
These Koi are a new variety that has been developed over 18 years by the Niigata Fisheries Department. Kijiro...
I think size does matter, BUT you can grow some really large koi in a relatively small pond (2000-4000 gallons) with water changes, lots of food, great filtration, limiting the number of fish, and...
What horrible news! I was unfortunately never able to meet him, but have heard nothing but great things. Condolences to the family.
You can get a fine gauge mesh net to put over the pond that you can still see the fish well and rid you of the herons. It also catches leaves,seeds, etc that can be blown off easily.
It looks like you got some really good growth this last year, after some slow growth between Nisai and sansai. Is it something you have done or is this a trait of the breeder? I have heard...
I remember the video where Russell asked " Are you sure it's male?"
Get some binder in ASAP! Check to see if you have high ammonia levels from the fertilizer.
Very nice products at reasonable prices.
I've used the exact same tool for over a year and love the results.
In the mean time do some water changes.
The problem with getting a 30 inch koi is that your getting one close to peaking and don't have as much time to enjoy their progress. One that is 30 inches and is not close to peaking is usually a...
Congrats Bill on some outstanding koi! Best wishes on the breeding program as well.
If you have a Facebook account you can go to Tomogai page and they have a 10 minute video
Did this work?
It is done all the time, the more refined kohaku adds better beni and body structure. Check out Pan Intercorps blog and they have a list of the matings at Sakai for the last two years. It's under...
I'm in, thanks for the Memorial Day excitement!
Already have the Advanced Koi Care, great book.
I hope this picture comes out ok, of note the kohaku that is oyagoi to lion Queen and monster 1&2 is the result of a sanke spawn. Notice also the line breeding, as the female oyagoi is in the...
Very impressive! Wish my pond was as nice as your basement! Do you have anything down there now or all out in the ponds?
Barbels are the key
Consider a sun sail. I got one on eBay 10' x 16' for $48
Looks like some serious diversity!:like:
I find that Chloramx to be really cost effective to bind ammonia and chlorine all at once. If you do have an ammonia spike just put in the Chloramx to bind.
For those of you that are relatively new to raising koi, Mark Gardener is a gentleman who has been making koi videos for some time. He has a new project looking at the seasons of koi production with...
Congratulations! We're you 18 when you started keeping koi?
So sorry just rounding, figured if you can afford the $100,000, the other $8,192 was chump change.
So $100,000 worth of koi in this picture
Just saw on Facebook where this Dainichi Showa brought 7 million yen ($68,200) at auction. If bought through a dealer add another20%. I think Russ is there, he might could vouch if this was correct....
Ah yes ... the one that got away
I am sure the cardiologists in Japan thank you.:bow3:
Certainly I am not a breeder, but if I was, this would be the type of male I would be looking for to pass on the conformation and pattern to my next generation. Just saying.
Beautiful male. Don't think I would have guessed male just by looking.
I think Ethan had experimented with a foam fractionator that was laying on its side. If you search you may find the post.
Gold star means special. $$$$$, first $ is not a 1!
Congratulations on raising such a beautiful koi!
I am sorry to hear that, best wishes on a speedy recovery.
I don't really treat the string algae till I'm sure my bacteria have cranked back up, when I see nitrates pop back up on my test kits. Then I will use tiny doses of algae fix. I like to think the...
You are an absolute gem!
I'm surprised you're not in prison after that steal! Congratulations and please keep posting it's progression.
Way to go Russ and congrats on supplying the GC!
Mask Kohaku is named Yamato.
Wow Russ, that show had some all-timers on display. Do you ever think back and try to judge which year had the best top end koi? top to bottom?
Same for me looks great!
Look forward to trying it.
I would be interested, I think a cubic foot would be good for my small pond.
Sorry put up post when I got up it duplicated when I deleted it deleted both495991
