Marie,
You did very well. I think they pretty good size too.
If you get them into some big water, they will grow very fast.
I pretty much only raised Crapoi. My adults were pretty young.
NEXT YEAR!!!

You said "It was a ton of work" Do you mean you actually did the steps to successful koi-breeding ?(choose the koi, isolate the pairs, separate the eggs from the parents after, malchite green the eggs, good filter water environment, 1st cull, etc.

I'm curious because I went the "unaware way" oil-slick pond, 10's of thousands of eggs, 70 gallon rubbermaid with an air stone and minimum filter (bucket of bio-balls) , egg yolks/first feed, grounded up koi food -next. After the season ended with two koi. :cool3:

Yes from watching them spawn(I have pics:D:) to removing the spawning brushes to watching them hatch, to hatching brine shrimp(PITA) and all the culls to get to this point...We had a 100 gal. hatching tank and then split them up between a 300 gal. tank..What I kept are inside in 150 gal. and 1- 55 gal. aquarium...Live food is the best but a lot of work..They are now eating reg. high growth small pellet's..

I did choose the parents for this spawn. Also they had flow threw through until they came in..They have VERY seeded tanks but get a water change everyday!!!!!

Here are some private moments:D: If you look at pic 2 you will see a ton of tiny eggs falling from my female Kohaku:bow:

WOW

Those are some nice fish.

Most of my herd is still immature, but that doesn't mean they don't try to join the action. I don't think I have a good choice of brood stock if I were attempt a serious pass at this (next spring).
I have 2 females
Orenji & Ki Bekko

And 3 males
S. Bekko
Asagi
Kohaku

I can't envision any good stock (at least worth seriously keeping) coming from any of these combos. But for the time being, I'll give it a better effort next time. Thanks for posting this. :cool3:

There is lots of bling bling in there. I saw a couple or more that I wouldn't mind having.
I dont plan on being a breeder, but I would like to pick a pair and let them do there thing just once for the experience. I bet you are having fun watching them.

My female Kohaku Ruby:bow: was 5 years old last year and my males are 4 years old..It was a gentle spawn thank God but then I was out there the whole time telling them to be careful:rolleyes::D:
