      Flash forward five years~ F2 gen. Ki shusui at Play

      Continuing.

      This generation was very different from the first.
      We do have some shusui/midori, but also, some actual ki shusui!
      The expectation has been for the real thing to appear in F3, so we're a bit ahead of the game.

      During the so-called cull where I kept 750 fry out of 6,750, , I selected for white skin, blue with yellow markings, and those who looked ki shusui early on. I don't have hundreds of ki shusui, something to look forward to in 2020 when many years in the making ki shusui x ki shusui cross is on the dance card.

      Here are some photos of ki shusui and cousins at play on 6-19-18.
      Think of me balancing on a rock in the water with my history of falling in!

      I take pix of these guys maybe twice a day. rain or shine. i'm learning so much about them, identifying them, finding similarities, differences, making mental decisions for the next cull. Trying not to wear you guys out with photos, honestly!!!!!
      Thanks for your feedback and support.
      I hope you're going to make it here in October.

      See what I call the perfect ki shusui before it becomes elusive~

      team ki
      The path to the elusive ki shusui is how shall i say this -- difficult.
      Ki is elusive.
      Ki is especially elusive on a white or pale blue non-metallic fish.
      This fish is my favorite F2, now about 14 months old.
      The Ki is starting to leave even as I write this.
      Bindi (another ki devotee) once told me, "Ki comes, ki goes," and I took that to mean "Ki comes again"~ but that's my byb optimism.
      I've named this fish, "Legacy." See it now before it's a white koi with a blue zip. And please pardon the sunburn. It has gone away.

      Some day let's figure out why we're doing this despite the odds.

      I love the last one. Like Matt said hopefully is holds up. I love the 2 yellow lines with the zipper in between. Some others look great as well. Photos are spot on also

      The only failures are those that stop trying! There is a very thin line between procrastination and delayed gratification. You won't be happy with what you want, if you aren't happy with what you have. It's not what you are looking at, but where you are looking from.

      Oooooooooooooooooh, Legacy is positively gorgeous! Perfect name choice too. Would you hazard a guess as to size? Is that one of your current breeders?

      I recommend you don't wait until spring but maybe into the late fall or maybe even into December. Choose the ones with the best bodies and Keep the ones with intersting and good patterns. The intresting patterns will bring a aspect to judging if you bring them to a show later on when nisai or sansai

      Bird has been sitting on the net and doing some damage. Couldn't see from house, but found a couple of corpses. I know this just goes with the hobby, but still. (!!!!!!!!!!) We've put a very attractive "dead man" at both ends of the pond to hold up the net (tall 2x4 x12' supports) -- so now, only have to worry about snake and frogs size of chickens!
      Fish I bought from you are still alive and well in the Big Pond.

      Hi, and thanks for weighing in.
      We will do a harvest in October -- three actually -- but am most interested in this nursery pond. I'm thinking along same lines as you suggest, but the goal is ki shusui.
      From a genetic standpoint, I must choose oyagoi with lateral markings.
      Otherwise, if i choose those with ki crossing the dorsal line, I am getting different genetics that come from the pied gene. This fish, with step pattern across dorsal ridge is a type called ayawakaba. A nice and similar fish, but I want yellow shusui.
      Your advice about the best bodies is on my mind all the time - and I have some that are rock stars - but not showing best markings, so its going to be hell around here in October. May have to cross males with correct genetic pattern with F1 females with superb body and skin. Thinking about it. However -- no koi shows anytime soon except virtual show here on Koiphen.
      Maybe you need a New York Koi Trips.

      Ki shusui -- the mental cull continues!

      'Morning, all.
      Since last I posted pix, I've been studying the kids, wondering where the ki went, glad when I see it!
      The ki shusui wannabees are 16 months old. They've grown. I'm still trying to mentally cull toward 6 to 12 future oyagoi.
      Required ingredients: luminous skin, strong conformation, stable ki (!!!!!), lateral ki markings, white background - because ki looks better on white. Ki that wraps the body from underneath to just before the dorsal scales, as in hi shusui or asagi, is from the lateral markings gene.

      Here's the watercolor series: what happens when couple hundred blue fish come to the surface together.
      Thanks for taking a look.
      More in a couple of weeks.
