    Yes, and with that human intervention, we can say they are man made as they do not occur naturally and, if man stopped breeding Koi they would no longer exist as we know them today.
  3. We can and, not only do we do it with Koi, we do...

    We can and, not only do we do it with Koi, we do it with the food we eat and plants we grow. Anyone can do it with Koi but the Japanese just do it better.

    Yes Timbo, that is exactly what I said...you should not be teaching about Koi to anyone.

    Yes and apparently so are you.:lmao:



    Do you think the genetics to produce a Pink Beni Showa are the same to produce a Magoi Carp? If so you should give this up.

    This was already agreed to in that it happens but is not very often

    OMG, you don't get it, humans are using existing genetics, combining them and making new genetics, then they do it again.

    It is not magic, just the facts Timbo...humans are taking genetics, that would have never occurred together, altering Koi and BAM, you have a man made fish.

    You are wrong again, Nishikigoi as they exist now, would cease to exist if the breeders stopped breeding them. The very first mutations were taken and turned into what they are today by man, not by...

    Any 'Tosai' is a Koi in it's first season. A 'Jumbo' Tosai should be a Tosai that comes from 'Jumbo' parents. Many Jumbo Tosai tend to be Tosai that are grown very large in their first season, so...

    I can not tell you where the blue, in Mr. Sarai's Beni comes from. Mr. Sakai does not discuss how he has developed any of his Beni. I understand that 'blue' can be found is some of the darker Beni...

    It would have to have something worth saving. If the conformation and quality were not there it would be discarded.
  15. It is very, very rare that an offspring gets...

    It is very, very rare that an offspring gets larger than the parent stock but the only way they have consistently gotten larger is by adding new genetics from Hirenaga or Magoi. When Hirenaga was...

    It is true, Koi are not people. Please see my response to Timbo.

    Nishikigoi, man made Koi, have never gotten bigger on their own, ever. These are not wild carp. 20 years ago a largeKoi was 22" -24". To get to this stage breeders added Hirenaga Koi to get them...

    Other than the shotgun approach, which has already been mentioned, the best thing to do is scrape and scope to try to determine if it is parasites or bacterial.
  23. The tests strip are no good for what you are...

    The tests strip are no good for what you are doing. Chances are, since it is only the Koi dying, is that they came unhealthy from where you bought them. There is also a chance that some other things...

    The only thing that should be tested, as you have done everything else is your KH. I would be surprised if they know what that is. Do not let them test your water for anything else and do not buy...

    I will keep salt at 0.06 in the pond for a couple of weeks to help with this condition. OTC is an antibiotic form the Tetracycline family.

    If they look like crap there is something wrong with them. To me it sounds bacterial in nature but a scrape and scope should show parasites if they are there.

    You are already there, this one has a raging internal infection and it will die unless you do injectables as soon as possible. You can see lifted scales on both sides as well as swelling in the body.

    Fluid is filling the areas underneath the scales and this needs to be drained. You do that by sedating the Koi and popping the tissue that is holding the fluid in then this area under the scales...

    Those areas have nothing to do with anything about the quality of the Beni. Whether they are uneven or not it does not matter.

    I wrote this article for Koi USA about a year and a half ago. There is some discussion, and confusion, on another board about "Pink Beni" so I thought I would post this again.

    Pink Beni is unsual in it’s development in that it is not always apparent, even to Mr. Sakai, at Tosai. Sometimes it is not “confirmed” that it is Pink Beni until the Koi is Nisai. Matsunosuke Pink...

    Where does Pink Beni come from? Mr. Sakai explained to me that Pink beni has been around for a long time. It was something that just occurred naturally but, at first, the Pink Beni Koi were not very...

    Mr. Sakai has many types of Beni, all breeders do, and these types include a “persimmon” type Beni, a darker “red” beni, as with most this type tends to be more of a “hard” Beni, a “yellow” type Beni...
