    looks like you are going to have your hands full. They look like they are growing good to,maybe they are a least 3 inches or better.

    Hey Judy

    1 to four inches......The sizes are all over the board. Just cant get these kind of results at home. Its all in the mud I guess. How has everything been going?
    Been out of touch for a while.

    Hola Diego

    Am not sure of the dimensions but it is apprx 7 feet deep. Here is a photo that might give u a better idea of the size. Feeding three times a day with a high prtein mini pellet and large quantities of brine shrimp flaked food which I buy from the local tropical fish coop.

    Hi trying to get my ponds ready like these you have posted. Been a few set backs but will soon get everything worked out I hope.

    Yep you cant beat growth rates in a mud pond, there are just plenty of live food for them in the water and I dont care what we do in a lined pond we just can get whats grows in mud ponds in the lined ones. The only thing I like about a lined pond for these guys are they way you tame so many of them at one time. I got to hand it to you, you do a very good job of taming the beast.

    Have a great time culling these koi, and watching them grow.

    Hi Kiefer,

    Great update as always.
    I am really getting very frustrated now it being Winter here and I have to wait another 5 months before I get another shot at breeding again.
    At least it helps when I get to see what you guys are doing now.
    Thanks for the clip,

    You must be very excited to raise the fry in a mud pond this season and I believe the size they are now and what they would have been if raised in a concrete pond must be significant.
