        Those are very interesting adults how big where they and how old when you did the breeding? Were they all together in the pond and was it in your big pond from the website or how big was the pond they spawned in. I spawned some of my sakai kohaku and sanke this year I got a very small spawning. They spawned late and there were very few survivors and they have little or no color. The parents are nicely colored.
        The perfect koi is always one purchase or spawning away!

          Hi Sanke,Most of the female parents are over 70cm and between 4 and 5 years old.
          I placed all the koi in the large mud pond and let then do their thing.
          There remained a total of about 6000 fry to choose from.
          I removed all the male koi when I did the first culling to prevent a further spawning.
          Now the question remains : Who are the parents of the good offspring?
          When I spawn again I will use one male to one female and raise the fry in separate ponds like I did this year with the metalics.

            Jaco if you use only one male he may be a dud and hence you don't get a spawning but if you do you know exactly who the parents are. I will use fewer adults in my spawning this year too as they all eat eggs big time so the fewer in there the more eggs that should survive. Last year after one spawning they were all egg hunting big time. The sooner you get them out after the spawning the better.


            My main goal right now is to get the parents in good shape and to select the spawners for the coming season. When is your spawning season.

              Hi Sanke,

              Our Spring starts on 1st September and the growing season runs through to April and sometimes even May.
