    Asagi

    As was mentioned in the 'Where is Dick' thread, perhaps we should have a seaprate thread devoted to picutures and talk of Asagi, labeled as such.



    So here it is, I would love to see photos of any asagi any of you keep, plus here more about the diferent varieties and bloodlines and breeding/culling strategies.



    I'm thinking it might be cool to have a separate ongoing thread for each koi variety. Considering my pond is 90% asagi and budo-goromo I will start a koromo thread too.

    Here is another Asagi. Female 30 inches and even better in person (Dick has already seen this one). The only thing wrong with her is that she isn't mine!!!

    Hi Dick,



    None of these were mine, unfortunately, but one belonged to a couple from Washington (I think that is where they are from). The breeder was Marudo. All are close to 80 cm.



    Best regards,



    Bob Winkler

    Here's an exceptional asagi that was on display at the San Diego show this year



    Unfortunately I don't know who owns it or who the breeder is.

    Some stunning asagis above!



    I was just wondering: How do you cull small asagi fry? The hi could hardly be out yet and the blue...? Do they go for single coloured pale grey or white or what?



    Regards,

    Per

    Per,

    In simbetsu for asagi, the amount of red showing is used as a gauge.

    basically what your looking at is a whiteish koi. the older they get the more red begins to display. in most cases of QUALITY asagi ,the blue asagi han does not show until the third year.

    In a perfect candidate, as tosai...the koi would have motoaka (showa like pecs with one third red (instead of black). An extremely high quality white face (about i/3rd of the head in the mouth nose area). the koi that look like the posters of all japan show winners at this age will never make it as an adult.

    Like many color varieties of koi, the secret is the longer it takes to get to where it needs to be, the longer it will stay there. that's why tategoi are so expensive and because you don't see the end in sight, the more difficult it is to part with your money!

    I will be breeding them this year. I was down checking on mom and dad in the wintering ponds two days ago. dad stays there till spring but mom, i will bring in and warm up in February and beginning feeding to increase egg production. Of the 60,000 fry I expect to get I'll have about

    60 koi to work with next fall with some potential! By the third year I should have 2 or 3 of each variety. Mom is narumi and dad is reverse. I have looked forward to this year for a long time.
