      Thanks, F.
      They look so different than the F1s, don't they?
      Line breeding did the trick.

      I hope you can make it in October. If I didn't kill John Clark in this last pull, going to try to talk him into a three-pond pull. Going to try!

      FIsh look fantastic this year...can't wait until you have ki oozing out of your ears

      I don't think that they'll amount to anything, but it'll be interesting to see what those yellowfin tuna turn into.
      I'd guess that the blue stays and they just get larger.

      sorry I missed the pull. Glad it went very well for you. Must look at the videos. Can't believe the algae you had.

      ----------- Thanks, Rain. Quite the word picture, isn't it?



      I don't think that they'll amount to anything,

      ------------ you mean the ones with the blue band over dorsal?



      but it'll be interesting to see what those yellowfin tuna turn into.

      ------------- I think that they will look like *Unique. I credit her with much of the ki in this spawn.



      I'd guess that the blue stays and they just get larger.
      ---------------------- ok. Good guess.



      * Unique, attached. She's F1, and was 5 y.o and loaded with eggs when she spawned last fall.

      Hi, Marg, When we get the videos cut and posted to Youtube, I'll let you know here. I tried not to cuss and I did slip and fall on my (ahem) while crossing the pond, so i hope none of that stuff makes the final cut. Will try to just show the fish!

      This fish got left out of the photo array.

      Rain, the blue band along the dorsal ridge is not as pronounced on this as on some of the others, but it's there. This big fish is one of my faves. Will try to remember to check on (her?) in Oct.

      "How're the kids doing?" Update in photos, just snapped. :)

      friends!

      It's been just over a month since we pulled the lower pond, sorted out the 750 (rounding off here.) F2 tosai and since I'm running a no-cull shelter I put the best 250 back into the nursery pond of about 130k gallons of flow through well water where they were hatched. The other 500 were split between the other two mud ponds with more competition, less food, all surviving and some are becoming ki shusui. More on them another day.


      Yesterday, I had both good light and clear water in the nursery at the same time! Imagine. Got pix. Here's a sampling of the kids who say they are now nisai. Some are ki shusui. Some have component parts that may be needed for the next generation. Some just had good personalities.

      Thank you, Mike! And thanks for asking.

      Here are the four that look most promising at 13 months.
      As another breeder of ki types told me, "Ki comes and ki goes." To which I'll add that "perfect ki gets muddy-- But NOT all the time!!

      As of now, here are the "All stars."
      The last one is a bit marginal, but it says "Give Ki A Chance."

      Five year flashback photo comparison F1 to F2 gen.

      team ki!
      Dan, remember sunshine in water?

      For comparison, this is the F1 generation exactly, I mean almost to the day, five years ago, 6-19-2013
      Parents were shusui females, doitsu yellow ogon males, and one male midori.
      F1 generation was overwhelmingly what Rain dubbed midori/shusui, mostly yellow-green fish with blue zippers. There were some blue ones with yellow markings - and four years later, the best of those became parents to the F2s.

      Next post will be F2s on 6-19-2018.
      Pls. stand by.
