Well, amigos, spring is less than 6 months away so I'm already starting to make plans for my very first planned Koi spawning. I will update this thread in the months ahead, but as it stands now, below are the pairings I'm considering for this "experiment." Only one pairing will ultimately be chosen due to space limitations, so any comments, advice, and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

Potential Spawning #1 - Kohakus (Go Sanke) --> hopefully majority of fry will be kohakus / go sanke

Potential Spawning #2 - Gin Rin Sanke / Sanke / Showa (Go Sanke) --> hopefully majority of fry will be go sanke, with some gin rin among these

Potential Spawning #3 - Yamibuki Ogons --> obviously, I'm hoping for a majority of yamibuki ogons among the fry here

Not quite warm enough yet. Probably another month before the "fun" begins...

Leaning strongly towards go-sanke...

Go-Sanke it is...

Only another month or so before the Barry White music starts to play, so it's time to make a decision. I have several females full of eggs, and plenty of willing males so I've decided to spawn go-sankes this year. Yes, I know this will make culling a lot more difficult compared to my original planned spawning of yamibuki ogons, but what can I say? I'm a glutton for punishment...

Here's some updated photos of the oyegoi I'm considering for 2008...

28" Male Sanke, 24" Male Kohaku, 26" Female Kohaku (Go Sanke)...

What is the best way to tell sex of koi???
I have a single female ... I know only because she has laid eggs.
The phots show a slight body differance. However for me its hard to tell.
