      My accidental breeding results. Don't laugh!

      So my mom's 7,000 gallon pond's S&G filters went down last year. Before I had them fixed we got some baby koi. Fast forward to today and I finally drained the pond most of the way and netted about 200 baby koi. Nothing super impressive as far as tosai go but I did keep 50 to grow a bit further and see how they do. The other 150 of them went in the neighbor's bass pond. Here are some pictures. They are now in a 1,000 gallon holding tank with filter and will go in my 500k gallon mud pond when it is ready. I also ordered some actual professionally bred tosai to add in to the mix, about 15 of those I think. Should arrive this week.

      There are a few decent sized Ochiba (max was 10" or so, no picture of this one, it went strait in the pond since I was concerned about oxygen) I got out of the mix and a few decent colored Showa that I am interested to see how they turn out. Again don't laugh, these are the best they came out of an accident ant the mom's pond. She tried to keep them fed over the fall but 300 babies plus the adults was difficult to feed. She was also feeding large pellets. Based on the offspring I think it was the Sanke and Ochiba that bred but who knows.

      I think there are a few interesting ones as well! Unlike some people on this forum, I will post some updated pictures after I feed the crap out of them. curious how they will develop.

      This accident has really sparked my interest in koi breeding. This might be something I do yearly for fun from now on!

      Those are very good results for an accident. But I think they did it on purpose. Beautiful ochiba! Nice showa too.

      Yep..agree with Matt24
      The Ochiba (of course) is my favorite..and the showa looks promising.

      Thanks guys! I put 50 of them in a 1,000 gallon tote thing with a filter. We will see how they do! In a month or so I think I am going to take my favorite 30 or so and put them in the 400,000 gallon mud pond!
