    I still see no reason for it, this is a Nualgi thread, this is not a thread about what you think should work better.

    Just so you know, the term for dappled Beni is not "Kaneko", Kaneko is a breeder, and it is NOT "Kanako" either. The proper term for it is Kanoko. This Asagi is not a Kanoko Asagi but rather an Asagi...

    Last year there were quite a few breeders trying for Oyagoi. They were unsuccessful as the Koi all went for too much money.

    Yes, your fish were traumatized, and will probably continue to be until they are eaten as well. Your only hope is to cover the pond with a net or to put something in the pond they can hide in. Best...

    It is all about experience. I have a friend that buys 4" - 8" Tosai, puts them in his aquarium, and then grow them to 14" - 16" before they go into the main pond. He does this in about 3 - 4 months...

    Koi clay is a floculent and can affect meds but it just depends on the medication. If it clumps the meds and you clean your filter a lot then it is a problem.

    Actually, that is incorrect, it says 'Female parent' Momotaro Showa. The certificate does not say the Koi in the picture is a Showa.

    I do not think the head usually grows more than the body, in proportion, so it is very important to make sure the head is a good size when the Koi is small.

    The problem with that is that you will never, ever get a Koi to grow like this based on that theory. It is just impossible.
