      Hi Nguyen365,
      Thanks for your interest in my fish.
      We usually harvest in may and in october.
      It's a lotta work and i'm not sure if I need to do it in May 2019 since we just thinned the herds in oct. 2018
      When the fish thaw out, i'll take a look and see if they need more room.

      of course, you know that i'm holding onto the best of them for the next spawn which may not be until next year. a lot of these kids are just taking up room, but as my old friend bindi once said, "Ki comes. Ki goes." LOL
      this is what a pile of them look like
      Sorting them is hard!

      Still toooo cold here to see fish, but I hope soon and then I can start updating the thread!
      Will probably only harvest in Oct. this year and can't wait to see how the F2 ki shusui look at the start of their second year.
      more soon.

      :Yo: team ki and all koiphriends :) Back cross project begins 5-14-19

      team ki and all koiphriends, it's almost spawning time again.

      Last May 2018, I had about 750 F2 ki shusui and ki shusui wannabees. They all had blue skins, dark blue zips and some had yellow markings. Not that they were all perfect, but I had a lot of fish with the right genes to choose from when they were of reproduction age.

      We (my friend and silent partner John Clark) split the group into 3 groups, roughly a third in each of the three mud ponds, and the ones we thought had the best prospects, went into the lower pond.

      In October, we sorted the fish in the lower pond again, leaving about 100 (approx ) where they had the most water and air per fish and zero competition from larger fish.

      In April I got to see the selected lower pond with the potential oyagoi growing toward an F3 spawn in 2020 or 2021

      The F2s doubled in size over the last year and were much bigger than their siblings in the other two ponds.
      Here they are in April 2019.

      Orlando suggested that rather than wait another year or two, I "back cross" a female F1 oyagoi to the pool of F2 kids and the boys would know what they were supposed to do. Pick a female with good body and skin. Orlando "Then, you're cooking with hot oil."

      Went back and forth on this idea. Pro: Skip over a couple of years.
      Con: What to do with another batch of kids. Pretty sure John is worn out from taking 6,000 little fish off my hands in 2017.

      Was muttering to myself at the cash register of a local diner, saying something like, "Back cross, or not."
      The gent behind the cash register said, "Definitely do it."
      What?
      Then I remembered. Dale used to breed cattle. And as a young man worked around race horses. Hmmm. Decision made.

      So flash foward to last Monday, May 13th, time to seine the Big Pond, retrieve, the oyagoi. Monday was hectic. I turned over the job of opening the gates to the agridrain to a helper who has done this before. That evening, at dusk, I went out to see how much more water we would have to remove in the morning before John arrived.

      This is what I saw:

      Okay, that was scary.
      I don't blame helper. He was working without supervision. I'm glad I checked. It was raining. So I opened the two wells and started refilling the pond. Historically, I leave too much water in the pond because don't want to freak out poor fishies. On the morning of the pull, in this case, Tuesday May 14th, we would pull out a number of gates until we could just see the top of the standpipe. This is all very awkward for john when he pulls the nets because the standpipe is an obstacle and the deep end is thick with gloppy mud.
      And that's not all.

      As I was investigating on the floor of the pond, I found two 12" youngsters caught in nets at the top edge of the pond!
      I'm talking four or five feet in the air, netting around their little bodies.
      But wait.
      They were alive!
      Four or five hours exposed to light rain, completely our of the water, high and moist.
      my DH got me scissors and I released them into probably a foot and a half of water with several hundred other fish.
      They weren't happy, but they were not, apparently, mortally wounded.
      Sorry, no pictures. It was a miracle to find scissors.

      Next up.
      Pull of the Big Pond!

      Best of the fish in the Big Pond.

      With Orlando's suggestion to pick out an F1 female with good body, good skin, I went looking for Sweet Cheeks and Beyonce who have been my faves since they were juveniles.
      Uh-oh, Sweet Cheeks starting to crap out. Cannot believe it. Last year her skin was gorgeous. Still (she rationalizes) she's eggy. She's about five and her eggs should be mature. Thumbs up. John throws her into the basket.

      Next, Beyonce. We find her easily in teacup of water and into the basket she goes.
      Next -- a really good surprise. Lyra. (Picture 1) She is an F1. She was not used in the 2014 spawn, but hey she has the same (probably) genes and she's spotless. Into the net. Eurtyh, did you name her? I think so..

      So, now we have 3 F1 females. I don't know if I'm cooking with hot oil or just fooling myself, but i figure worst case, still have the F2s and they may be ready next year.

      So females selected I'm showing you some others of the denizens of the Big Pond.
      We have Candy (Pic. 2)
      We have Mr. Rainblood in fish form. (pic 3) thanks mdf.
      We have one of the original doitsu lemon ogons, oyagoi from Japan. Really holding his color and skin qual.
      We have a home grown shusui and a ki shusui possible sibling!
      We have a ki shusui (maybe) with kuchi ki.
      We have a small litter of ki asagi, all random spawned. The largest is an F1, one of few in that spawn with scales, and he has "kado gin."
      Next, we have Beyonce.
      And then, we have poor Sweet Cheeks, losing her looks at five. But, heck, can happen to anyone
      We have miscellaneous kiddos that are clearly smaller than their sibs in the lower, out of order. ;x
      And that's my happy face after we've emptied the three girls into the lower with their sons and nephews.


      Last thing John said to me as he got into his truck. "Temperatures are going up. Watch the cattail section of the pond."

      So what do you guys think?
      Spawn?
      Brilliant back-cross? or zzzzzzzz?

      I for one, dunno But always optimistic!

      Cindy,
      the angle wasn't good on the jacket, but that's the one you gave me with a ki shusui applique!
      It kept me toasty at 38F and rainy!!!
