      Good shine. And very good coverage of ginrin on those that are ginrin.

      Here's a link to the food I'm using (been using it for several seasons). https://optimalfishfood.com/product/optimal-starter-2/
      I bought a bag of the Optimal food and have just about used up all 40#. Food is fine, but I can't see any difference in growth or interest in the food compared to any of the other big feed manufacturers I use including Purina, Cargill, Rangen, Skreeting or Hikari.

      Thanks Matt. I was planning to pull the rest of these today, but the weather didn't cooperate. I have a good number of these (probably about 150) many have very nice ginrin. Without a doubt the best outcome of the season. All the other crosses were somewhat disappointing, but I've gained knowledge and have plans moving forward.

      Hey Sean,

      On your cross of "Yamabuki Ogon (M) crossed Gin Rin Platinum Ogon (F)", do you have any updated photos or video showing how the colors are looking now?

      I always like a back-up plan in case my the A-Team that I try to spawn does not work out. One B-Team that I've considered doing this same cross, except that my male and female types are reversed from yours. I am curious what they may turn out like.

      Thanks,

      Hi Matt,

      No new pictures yet. Just based upon what I see looking into the tanks, it does not appear that the color has changed much. Some of the very small ones do seem to show a darker yellow, but the bigger and more desirable ones seem basically unchanged. I did see one of the larger ones showing a small patch of bright yellow right behind the head, but that was just one fish. I'll know more in about a month when these get moved into the main pond. I plan to use the female again this year, but haven't fully decided the male yet. I'm very pleased with the outcome from last year, but I'd like to experiment with a new crossing. If the new crossing doesn't work well, I'll go back to the previous Yamabuki Ogon male.

      Good luck this season.

      Here are a couple of pics taken today. Starting to darken from the creamy yellow to a brighter yellow.
