Has anyone had this happen? In September we had a bad storm and lightning struck the utility pole next to our main pond, blowing out the transformer and cutting off power up and down the street. The next day the power company replaced the transformer and I was really worried about the koi. Sure enough my favorite and most valuable 32" female Sanke suddenly had a kinked spine. I didnt think she would survive but to my surprise she has managed to pull through although still with the kink. She swims fairly well unless startled whereas she swims quickly in a large circle. She eats well and otherwise acts normally. None of the other fish were affected by the lightning strike thankfully(but one of my German Shepherds was in the garage laying near the service entrance and was shocked and burned pretty badly on his leg, he's ok now) My question is to anyone who has had or heard of this happening and the possibilities of this koi still being able to breed? She was a great breeder.
