    Ha Ha that's a good one. But where is the solution for those who are AC/DC the metro-males and tomboys?

    Guess what? After many rounds of sake, wine and beer, an elderly breeder confessed that they can tell if a juvenile koi <20cm is female with 70% accuracy. The other 30% they overlook so that we can go hunt for bargain basement female kois!

    I pull out a hundred and put it over the tank. The ones that come running are female... LOL

    I stuck the cartoon in front of the aquarium glass and they'd not pay any attention to it. So I would Grab them by the head and force them to look
    but they would not choose....I did however feel a very beard like growth on their cheeks -----what does that mean? One seemed to be clean shaven?
