      Warm water, spawning substrate, preferably two males to one female, and it works best in shallower water.

      Are koi likely to spawn in a 300 gal tank? I would put maybe 2 males and 1 or 2 females in it. Will they be gunshy in such a small space? They usually are in 10k gals.

      What is an ideal temperature to maintain to promote a spawn?

      Ideal spawning temp is 68. Did the females go through a cold spell? They usually need that to produce eggs from what I hear. A cold spell is about 55 for a certain amount of time.

      I would like to say 68 (20c) is a minimum then 78 (25C) or higher is an ideal.....
      Fry are weak in sudden change of water temperatures so it is safe to wait till a stable weather/tempature.... May, June or even July depend on a region.
