View Full Version : Koi spawn from Brett Raffle #3 ?

I think the fish I received from Brett spawned last night in the QT.:eek1:
Is there anyway you can tell if the eggs are fertile? They are stuck all over the inside and I have pulled a bunch out of the small settlement chamber I had made for the QT. Most of the eggs look white bust some are a yellow/orange color. I did a 50% water change since the nitrate shot up to about 30 ppm.

was there a male present? If they're fertile, you'll have fish in a couple days

All three of the fish Brett sent the Doitsu, Asagi (which I believe is a male) and I am not sure what the other one is are in the same QT. I am going to town in a minute to get some filter pads to replace the ones that are full of eggs. I will try to post some pics when I get back.

If they're pearly white they are infertile. Fertilized eggs will become opaque/translucent.
