Tooth of koi
By chance I found this in my pond:
I've walked, I thought it was a stone, but no ... is a tooth of my koi!
For the size I think who is the owner ...
The koi is 5 years and has 3 at home.
They eat dry food especially for koi.
Is it normal for teeth fall was the koi?
Can there be a problem?
Ever be able to grow another tooth?
As you have seen, koi have pharyngeal teeth. They are like molars set back in the throat used to crush/grind food. Koi do lose and replace their teeth from time to time.
i got a shiro that loses teeth all the time(1 bet once week or ever other)
and i know it is here cause she does it right in front of me.
she still eating and doing well so nothing to drastic.
Thanks for the reply.
I know a breeder of fish for consumption. The breeder gets wet for a while before releasing the pellets.
As we all know the pellets became soften on the water and increase the size.
Possibly the dry food is not good until it softens.
It may be a storage and transport easy, but I may have to be rehydrated before use.
Do you think that might be good wet food before?
PS: sorry for my English, I hope everything is understood.
Yes, very normal.
