      You know I will, Steve!
      Now that John thinks we can pull the Learning Curve Pond I will be able to enter some fish that are not ki shusui!

      Is there no way to buy any of these fish? I'm jealous of anyone who can drive there! Unfortunately you live on the opposite side of the country from me... how dare you be so inconsiderate to the West Coasters! Anyways, those were some pretty cool fish and I'm sure it was a fun (but rough) time pulling all those ponds and getting to see the fish up close. Thanks for all the pictures! I'm excited for the Learning Curve pond pull.

      mes, thanks for your funny post. I'm glad you like the koi. I got huge adrenaline rush when they were all in one tub and so big! Hoping for a spawn in May.
      but I may be rushing the girls.

      Thanks, my friend.
      Well, here's an interesting thing (to me. lol) I brought a bucket of 15 faves uphill to the sunshine so I could measure and take pix and sex them for future, and get this == fourteen of the fifteen were female. (need that mouth open and close emoji here )
      This must the male.
      Now, will the random scales trait carry over? Should know in a couple of years.

      I'm not sure these are even fish anymore, they are too darn good looking for fish! They are liking live, swimming piles of gold and diamonds. Incredible work Max!!!

      I could see dark spots around the lateral line, but from the photos, I thought that was just color. I did not realize it was scales. If that is the case, if you cross it with one with no extra scales, you may get a mix among the fry.

      That's what I think, too, Matt. I've got about 90 F2s from this pond to choose from. Odds are high that I will do a 6-8 fish flock spawn, but I'll know more next may.

      Yes, another koi harvest ======= today!!!

      --------------------- ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT.----------------------
      Is the mic working?
      Good.
      Perfect day for a koi pull. Cool and sunny all day.
      We were going to skip the Learning Curve Pond but John Clark was free.
      Sean was here at six to drain the middle pond, Monty here to assist, Brendan will be in charge of pictures and Joe will pick up the pizza.

      This pond is called Learning Curve because I started with one of everything back in '06, soon found my true shusui love, then by Oct. '08, there was a new larger pond and with 27 mangoes ready to make ki shusui. The first experiment failed, but by the 2017 spawn we'd rectified mistakes and had 750 F2 ki shusui divided into three ponds.

      One of those ponds was the Learning Curve Pond which we will be seining in 45 minutes.
      I will be looking for the 250 ki shusui, any ki asagi especially my beloved Thellonia, and some long fins who have done well in comps.
      PLUS
      there was much splashy-splashy in this pond in May so we will see what this muttagoi free-for-all has produced.

      This is Brendan Duffy, my stepson, wearing his logo ki shusui hat, made by our own talented Cindy Badder.

      Pictures of fish later or tomorrow.
      Now, I'm going out to the pond!

      Thellonia and possible male ki asagi.

      Thellonia, a ki asagi is home bred from flock spawn in the learning curve pond. Makes me happy just to look at her.
      Thellonia is first three pix.
      Then, a couple of males who lean toward ki asagi, possible suitors. Also same provenance. Could be kids or sibs. and is that a male vent?
      I have no actual plans to breed Thellonia because of all of the work and another maybe 12 yrs, to perfect the line,
      but just for fun, would like your thoughts.

      Ki shusui, third cut from 2017 spawn. some surprises. ;)

      In 2017 we had a huge spawn from ki shusui oyagoi.
      There were approx 7,000 fry. Most were midori. I gave all but 750 of them to John Clark.
      Then, I split the remaining 750 into three ponds.
      These are the ones who went into the Learning Curve Pond.

      I'm sure you noticed the duckweed.
      It makes fine cover for the fish, but is a drag when pulling the pond!
      So clean water constantly needed. In the end, we separated the ki shusui.

      The best ones were captured, photographed and moved to the Lower Pond/Nursery.
      Come May 2020, we'll pull the lower pond and pick out the best 6-8 to be the oyagoi for the next gen: F3

      The kids pictured here are all of the same spawn, clearly 5 inches shorter than their siblings who've been coddled in the nursery, and a few were surprisingly adorable.
      So, we took the best of them, transported them to the Lower Pond and they now have joined their larger sibs for the winter.
      In May, we'll do our best to choose the best.


      More later!
