      Update on kohaku

      Hi all, been a year seen I added this kohaku to my collection. Let me know what you think if this kohaku is improving or declining. She is now 27 inches. Thanks

      I noted those are also, I can't think of any reason y other than she growing too quickly and the color can't catch up. All water in check, ammonia 0, ph in check 7.2 _7.7 day and night. Water change 10% weekly. Oxygen stay at 9_10, I use Seneye monitor so it alert me when something not right. Water temperature at 67. And she getting the best food I can get, saki hikari/FD koi food/sera/ danichi koi food. The only thing I can see is she on 3 meal per day with low protein (sera probiotics/ saki hikari all season mix. Maybe she need some color food mix in to help color catch up?

      I notice the break in your earlier post already but not real visible
      It is clearly now
      I donít think it is the right time for color food anyway or even 3 times a day
      Iím with Rain the beni does not show hoshi at all that mean the beni is not stretching
      Winter/spring is time for the koi the rebound from the previous growing period
      Not much you can do rather than be patience for now
      Check you KH level 7-8drops recommendation
      You got .5 swing in PH

      Thanks for the info, I did cut back to 2 feeding and just wait. I'm hoping bring her out to the koi show in late July.

      Her cheeks/gill plates area are too yellow for show
