      Breeding Pond Setup (questions)

      What are the minimum and recommended dimensions for koi to breed?
      Will they breed eventhough they feel there's not enough space?

      I don't know the minimum, but I can tell you that I have bred them in about 350 gallons. This was in a big round 500 gallon tub, about 2/3 full. I have not bred jumbo koi in this tub, but for koi up to 25" (64 cm) it has worked well. It probably depends on the size of the koi.

      There is a picture of the tub in post #5 of this thread: https://www.koiphen.com/forums/showt...owa-Spawn-2020

      When I bred my showa, i built a 3ft x 4 ft x 2ft high for a spawning pond. I have 300 gallon rubbermaids tank, but I didn't use it for breeding purpose. I had raccoon problem. It comes once per week, so I don't feel safe to put 24-25 inch koi in a 300 gallon rubbermaids tank.

      You can breed koi in 350 gallons of water like Matt stated above and I've also used the same method but for a novice the problem comes when you have to start addressing water quality issues with that small amount of water. So if I was you I would find the largest reservoir that you can in order to make your life easier and give those fry the best chance.
