I collected some great Koi from Jaco on the day before xmas and I transferred them to my QT pond. They spawned in the earlier hours of Xmas morning. I thought they were fighting or stressed up due to the small pond but little did I know they were spawning.

Nie noodwendig 'n goeie ding nie.
Toets water elke dag.

Is al heeldag besig om water te vervang want sien die ammonia is geweldig hoog. Hoop nie visse het skade gekry omdat ek dit so laat raak gesien het nie. Elke sentimeter van die dam is bedek met eiers. Daar moet honderde duisende wees. Selfs die filter kamers,teen waterval, net en return pyp is vol van klein Koi.

Sy nou mooi maer soos 'n Cheetah plaasvervanger. Het fotos geneem 1 uur nadat ek hulle in dam gesit het die 24ste. Vannaand lyk hulle almal weer gelukkig want ammonia weer laag en water skoon. Het ook weer begin eet na al die stres.

Hoe kan ek van die eiers uithaal dat daar paar oorbly om te groei? Sien meeste sit vas teen dam mure.

Het sout en Bao Bio booster ingegooi, maar is daar iets anders wat ek kan / moet byvoeg om eiers te beskerm ?( dit is nou vir die eiers wat nie op geeet word nie)

What sort of Koi can you expect from a Hariwake female and Sanke males? Remember it was not planned. In fact it was a big surprise to me

Daar sal beslis 'n paar uitbroei, maar sover kwaliteit betref, baie klein kans.

Ek sien die ammonia is weer hoer vandag. Is dit die gevolg van die klomp eiers, wat ook die dooie eiers insluit?

Xmas was a great day when Koi spawned. It was ever greater because I did not even know that since I thought they did not like the small pond and were fighting because they were use to a large pond.

The Ammonia was sky-high after spawning but I only saw the eggs a day later so I did not take water out directly after spawning. The next day I did a large water change and did the same every day after the spawning. Within a few hours after the water change the ammonia went high again.( about 800 000 eggs, including the dead eggs) I was thinking to transfer the QT fish to my large pond but was worried that I might encounter health problem and left them in QT with the eggs. Sadly to say, all 6 large Koi in QT died on Wednesday evening. They were still fine at 5.30pm but found them all dead by 8pm.

So guys, make sure your Ammonia level is low, especially in a very new pond without a proper working filter system. It is true what they say, ammonia and nitrite is the number one killer in a pond.

Dis nou slegte nuus, ek dink die skade was gedoen toe hulle twee dae in die spawn water geleef het voor jy dit agter gekom het.

Dis very, very bad my vriend.

Hi Jaco

Ja, ek moes dadelik water vervang het, maar dit te laat agtergekom. Ammonia was hemelshoog en het afgekom na watervervanging maar paar ure later weer hoog. Dink die ammonia het skadu aangerig voor ek plan kon maak. Testkit het eerste keer 10mg/L gemeet en as pH van 8.2 en temp van 26* in ag geneem is was ware ammonia lesing +-1mg/L wat baie skadu dadelik kon aanrig.

So leer mens elke dag iets nuuts
