    Thanks Don. It was pretty tough to bring myself to euthanize her since she was one of my personal favorite. It's even tougher thinking that I was the one that may have caused her tumor. The pond feels so empty without her presence. I know it's gonna be difficult but I hope I can find a kohaku that can come close to replacing her.

    Sorry to learn of your kohaku passing.

    Don't be to hard on yourself thinking that you may have been the cause of her tumor; Mother Nature works in mysterious ways and it is she that makes the rules.

    Bummer Lam, sorry for the loss. If you intend to keep females in the long run this is expected.

    Rough buddy, sorry.

    I didn't realize tumours could develop from un-spawned/absorbed eggs. God this hobby is tough.

    You'll find another....

    I don't think you had anything to do with it. It just happens sometimes. There are other fish in the pond and they are fine, right? It just happens.

    It's so hard when you lose one but you have to remember they're living animals and you can't control everything that happens.

    I'm very sorry, Lam.

    Lam,

    Thank you guys. This one was difficult both mentally and emotionally. All the other koi in the pond are doing great. It's just that Mother Nature had to choose this one.

    Bill, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dainichi jumbo tosai sanke. Yeah, I remembered that sanke very well. After all she was the only sanke in the jumbo tosai tank and I had an eye on her.

    If you did not find eggs in an unhealthy, decomposition-like state, I doubt it had anything to do with fasting. There would typically be bloating in the abdomen. Your description is not consistent with an egg problem.

    We do not know much about what can contribute to tumors. It's one of those things that we just have to accept. My condolences. It's tough to lose a favorite.
