Tried to take a few photos today but it's not easy as the fry are a bit far away and with sudden high temperatures we had a bit of algae bloom witch are already clearing up again. First selection should have started already but we decided just to get Christmas behind us. So we will start as early as possible in January. I don't like the idea because now the growth will be held back for a few days, but family is family and needs a bit of my attention now. santa santa

Some Ochiba fry 22 days old today and will be ready for first selection in about 14 days. They are between 2cm and 3cm and the bigger ones in the pond about 4cm. They started eating soaked Sakura pellets after about 7 days. The first 7 days they ate Sakura Paste. The pellets swell to 8mm - 1cm and during feeding time it looks like the soccer world cup training program. affraid Please click on enlarge image. Very Happy

Some photos of the Kohaku and Kikusui fry, what a cute bunch they are, hard to see on the photos but the patterns start to come out now. They like to play in the patches of algae. This is also the pond which had the most algae bloom, a patch of about 1.5m across when the wind gathers it in the corner. The fry is 2.5cm to 4cm and bigger ones of about 5cm to 6cm. They are a month and a half old. Very Happy Sorry for the bad photos Embarassed Embarassed
