      Konishi Karashigoi Tosai (likely pond grade)

      Kodama Koi farm acquired 50 Konishi Karashigoi tosai and offered them at a price that I felt was worth the risk. Customers were not given the option to pick out their specific fish from the lot of 50 and the pricing reflected that. I have no show aspirations but it would sure be cool if one of these fish got to 30" long. One is doitsu and the other is not. They sure are tiny at the moment! We will see how they do--I have pretty low expectations but we will see.

      Look at the huge tail tube on that doitsu!!

      (Ok, that's a joke. I can never tell what people are talking about when they mention the tail tube. I would need to see a bunch of side-by-sides to differentiate.)

      If you put them in big water and feed them with a shovel, they might make that and more .

      One month later and they are getting bigger, especially the doitsu. Hard to tell because the fish is suspended at an angle in the water in this photo but it's nearly 10" long now.

      Photos are definitely distorting it a bit. With the tail up and nose down in the water, the Doitsu looks like it has a world of body/shape issues. Time will tell though on what you will get. Just keep the water good, feed them, and hope for the best.

      I found the photography to be a totally futile effort with these small fish. They would not sit still for an instant. I probably took 25 photos, not one of them decent.

      A few drops of clove oil will calm them easily

      That’s pretty good growth. I got 4 from them too. 2 of mine is also about 10” now and the other 2 is smaller. I’m expecting these to be around 15” by March.

      Nice. I'm assuming they will settle down as they get older. I'll re-bowl them in the spring before I put them in the main pond.
