I think I've had a fairly sucessful breeding test with my doitsu platinum male and my doitsu yama ogon female. these little guys and girls have an amazing sheen to them.

Theres also a showa pairing in this puddle.

I took these pics today during the second culling. the metallic fish are 9 weeks today and the others are 8 weeks.

Very nice....I like the color on them....I looks like you may have lots of "keepers"

Thanks, i've noticed with the ogon crossing it seems like 90% of the fish so far are "keepers" and the yearly showa pairing only has 9%

I think your ogon crossing looks great. I'm happy you got such good results.
Is this the first attempt with these two or just the one that worked out in your favor?

90 % keepers would be huge :eek1:

Thanks,

The ogon and I would call them hariwake are 3-4" and the showa offspring are 2-3"

This was the first try with these two fish and I'm really happy with the results. I've read in several places that breeding quality ogons usually gives a high percentage of offspring that look like the parents.

How are things going now?
New update would be nice. :yes: ... Is my boy still performing ?

Hey, a dad always wants to know.

Again new history and pics would be nice.

Hey Rudy, I've been lazy with the fish lately and I don't have any recent pics. I've been building a saltwater system for breeding purposes and havn't been concentrating on the koi.

They're doing great and the offspring have grown like crazy here in the house. I'd get some pics but my cam has been on the fritz so it may be awhile.
