    Your largest koi

    I would like to know how large is your largest koi. I replace almost all of my koi in the last year, so I don't have any real large ones yet. Most of my koi are 18" to 22". I have only that's about 27" and that is the largest right now.

    Mine are all young, the largest maybe around 19". Hope to have my 3 largest (17-19" now) to the mid to high 20's by fall.

    Tom, my experience is similar to yours. All my biggies are down the road and the current ones i have are under 4 years of age. My sakai Asagi from magoi bloodline is up to 25 inches so I'm hopeful she'll get over 30 dispite my tiny pond.

    My koi kichi's biggest one which I help each year load up for the shows ( Nightmare) is 31 inches.

    I have to say from a moving or treatment concern 24 inches is a nice max size.

    If you never had to touch em 36 would be nice!

    the way she eats up her food, thank goodness Saki Hikari here doesn't cost what it does in the States.

    Soelistyo: I would love to see such a large Soragoi. I very much prefer them over Chagoi.

    My largest is "Junior", a low quality Hariwake hatched in my lily pond. She is now right at 28". I am hoping another will gain on her during the course of this season.
