    Home Bred Matsukawabake

    Each year I update the photos and sizes of my koi around this time of year. Here are a few I am pleased with.

    The first was bred in 2009 from a matsukawabake male and a female kohaku.

    The next is also from 2009 and is from a carp/showa cross.

    Hello Bradley,

    Thanks for posting the results of your spawns. I am always tempted to spawn my gosanke, but I don't have the facility to raise the fry. I am curious what were you trying to achieve with both parings. Do you have pictures of them(parents)? What kind of fry did you get from each group?

    Thanks,
    Sunny

    Sunny,

    The first is one of producing beni matsukawabake, with the upside of matsu with better shiroji.

    The second is a very long term project to build vigor and size into our koi. We are unable to import into Oz and our koi rarely reach over 60cm.

    Hey BB,
    With the complete outcross because it was crossed Showa did you cull for black fry early like a showa spawn or was the approach different ?

    I find the degree of similarity very interesting given the very different parentage.

    In Kuroki's book, Shiro Usurimono and Matsu have a common line, Asagi Magoi.
