      This is amazing. I hatched some babies for the first time this year and it wasn't nearly this many. It's really cool to watch them grow. Do you have any current pictures?

      EDIT: Didn't see page 2. They're looking great.

      Last year I sold them all, didn't do any culling. I kept about 8, 4 are looking really good.
      This year sell a few, give most away to friends, let the tobies feast....

      Group. Couldn't be bothered doing selective since I don't have room to keep any more for growout.

      Congratulations on this year's group. We'd like to see photos of your 4 favorites from 2019.

      I'm guessing 2-3 fish spawned, 20-30,000 fry right now. My largest kohaku girl didn't participate, she was really getting beaten up the next day so I stripped her and got about a cup of eggs. Would have been at least another 20,000. LOL

      Next year maybe I'll strip her and fertilize manually with a nice kohaku male. The eggs pic is in the bottom of a 17 gallon bucket (for perspective).

      Kind of hard to catch the small ones. I'll bowl them in a couple of months when they are 10+ "

      Yes, if you can sedate them and strip them fertilization rate would be at least 60% ish... natural spawning is much lower I've learned from saki fish farm videos

      I've got 5 lots right now. Day 16
      Indoor Spoiled Brats (all the live food they want) 1-1.25" pic in post #53
      Indoor Chosen Ones (as much live food as I can afford and filtration can handle) about 3/4 -1"
      Indoor Regular eaters (mostly pellet food) about 3/4"
      Indoor Green water (mostly algae) about 3/4"
      Outdoor Green water (mostly pellet) 1/2-3/4" water unusually cool for May.

      Sorry if I missed it, but what variety are these? Are these kohaku/sanke/bekko like your 2019 batch? You sure got a lot of 'em.
