    I'm now caring for 10 blue babies!

    My Overnight Shipment arrived today. All 10 baby asagi's arrived in good shape and are resting comfortably. Figure should get 2-3 females and rest males. 2 or 3 look like possible first place koi. maybe I'll get A picture to Dan to post for me
    on this thread. The company i work for has a great rep for UPS. He met the shipment at the regional warehouse prior to loading on a truck and ran them out to me to get a 3 hrs jump on delievery. They were really in good shape and what a relief to see those little guys, happy and zooming around. Bewteen this shipment and my wife's good dr report, the olde self is beginning to re emerge!
    Will be interesting once a pic is posted to have your thoughts on which ones appeal to you. ( I'm under restriction as to anything about them so please no follow ups on from who, where etc.)

    Nice looking asagi! How did you guess the sex, by the shape of the body?

    Is 20-30% being female typical for a spawn or just for this particular batch?

    I do have many questions, but I want to learn more!


    Thanks.

    very nice asagis - they all have very even scales on their bodies.
    Are these babies from Japan? Who is the breeder?
