View Full Version : Culling Kohaku Question

08-17-2008, 12:24 PM
I have a question: I know that Kohaku should have white fins so if the fry at 1"+ have red on their Peck fins etc do you cull those or will the red/orange fade back?

I had a few that started out all orange and then the fins went clear/white from the distal end and faded back to the body:


This one still shows some of the color in the caudal fin, but I expect it to be gone in about a week. It is from a late May spawn and is almost 5" long now. He was spawned and grown out in the pond; heaven help me if I ever decide to catch it!!!

In a pond spawn I am not at all quick to spawn ANYTHING till it is needed so the growth rates are not slowed.
