      Thanks Delbert, Max, and Hope. I had never spawned a female ginrin before. I had heard the ginrin gene was a dominant, and it sure looks like it. One of the two males being ginrin may be adding to the percentage.

      Everything I've read says Gin Rin is dominant as well. It's so exciting watching them grow! I can't wait until mine are old enough to spawn!

      Yeah Hope, I've had my eye on that one. It has only a little white, on the face. But that's okay. Mom does not have much white either.

      In my previous 4 showa spawns, the females had a lot of shiro, and I got a good many shiro utsuri and very few hi utsuri. In this year's spawn, the female has a lot more orange (more butterscotch actually) than white, and I am getting a lot more hi utsuri than shiro utsuri. Not really surprising, but confirming what one might expect.

      With this group narrowed to about 35, a few days ago I moved them from the tub to the 1800 gallon pond. So they have a lot more room now. But it is getting cold, and growing season it pretty much over.

      Thanks for the encouragement Hope, Delbert, and Orlando.

      Figuring the little ones were about through eating much for the season, and knowing a cold front was coming, last weekend I replaced the orchard netting that was over the pond with a double layer of plastic sheeting.

      Then winter sent its first strong volley with a 15 F temperature yesterday morning (not wind chill, but actual) and the sustained wind was ~20 MPH with gusts over 40 MPH. It's warming back up a little now. Hopefully that was a head-fake and not just a small sample of what is coming later.
