      Nice!!! Like the Kohak's, which we had something here to grow our fish out too.

        Wow. Looking great! How many of those ponds are you using for your koi?

          Hi Keifer,

          Great set of pictures, tells the story nicely.

          What % did you remove from the pond and roughly how many Koi was that?

          I take those 4 in the vat were not from this pond, or are they the parents???????
          Regards, Bob

            Morning Bob

            I'll guess 20 percent but wont have an acurate count until sorting tommorow.

            The Kohaku pic was uploaded into this thread accidentally, but they are some of my parent stock.

              I am fortunate to have two at my disposal. The second is used to return the better of the lot after culling.

                  Morning Gaz All the youngsters are taken inside and placed in 5 or 6 vats were they settle in for a day or two. Afterwards, they are sorted and culled. Then, the keepers are returned to a second pond for further growing.

                    Great pics! And, that pond does not seem overloaded with algae. Looking forward to your sorting.

                      Great work Kiefer! I love the pics, gives me some good ideas as to how to get my fry from the ponds, and also what type of nets that will work. Keep me some ulgy ones for some parent stock. Ill come and get them.

                            WOW Thanks Kiefer,
                            It's like watching a soap on TV just before you get to see what really happened it's over and you must tune in again tomorrow to see the pictures of the fish.
                            Do you also find that there are more people prepared to help than what you really need. I had to lie about the day of netting the ponds to prevent too many people from comming.
                            Please keep us posted, how about a closeup of the fry just before they are removed from the net.
                            Thanks again,
