    Pics of this season's spawn

    Here are some pics of this season's spawn.
    Male Kujaku and female Doitsu Hariwake.
    What do you think?
    Jaco.
    EDIT Pic three is a Sanke of the previous year and pic four is a non metalic Hariwake called an Au Lait if I am not mistaken.

    Very nice Jaco! You get very fast growth there too. What made you switch from gosanke to hariwake?

    Hi Steve,

    I spawned Metalics last year just for interest sake.
    Now I can say been there done that. I found it much less challenging than Go-Sanke.
    Greg, sory I do not ave pics of parent on hand to post.
    Here is an interesting set of pics for you guys.
    The Tobi in he middle of the net at the first culling and what it looks like now.
    Thanks for the replies.
    Jaco

    I see some nice shine to them, Jaco. ....It is curious how the doitsu scalation always varies so. I particularly stared at the one with parallel rows on each side of the dorsal. If you find a good high gloss one in the spawn with parallel rows and no surplus scales, keep it no matter the color pattern. You may not want to keep it forever, but when that sort puts on size, they truly give the impression of armored warriors. Worth taking space for a while to see the effect .... then pass on if you're not into doitsu.

    Hi Mike,

    I think that is where the problem lies for me, I do not like Doitsu fish and therefore these do not appeal to me at all. The full scalled Yamabuki's are my favorite

    Jaco, did you get a whole bunch of black looking fry with yellow noses?

    That was the result of my kujaku spawning. I have a few reasonable kujaku, but most were total junk.

    I bought new males last October from Takigawa, they are stunning and hope it helps the percentage of keepers.

    Maurice.

    Jaco, I can see many in your culling net which have the look I refer to. From your net full, you had better results than I.

    I've lost a lot of saved photos which I had planned to post, never mind life goes on. I'm still waiting for a card reader, so I can give you all an update on how things are going.

    I'm running a little late, I'd planned on starting spawning about now, but I'm a couple of weeks away. Still. I'll be nowhere near as late as last year!!

    I plan on harvesting the tategoi Hariwake pond next week, I'll post photos of a few.
    Good luck and keep up the good work.

    Maurice.
