    Update on my koi home breeding

    I try my hand at spawning every year. Have been focusing on Showa recently.
    im literally using a few plastic pools and about 10000litres of space in my additional ponds.
    ive learnt loads about the combination I'm using and how to select from it. This is the second season with this combination.
    what do you think guys?

    Nice results with those two. Are they tosai? If so, they are certainly well-fed! Sumi is certainly strong. How large are they?

    I'm hoping the sumi in the pecs retracts to form decent motoguro. If tosai, may well happen. If nisai, more likely to remain over-done... like genetic artifact reaching back to utsuri.

    thanks I'm happy with the results - getting used to selecting Showa.
    the yellow goons are actually karashigoi x ogon from a big female karashigoi. They are turning out to be jumbo monsters.
