Oh my, they are a little chubby there.

Are they confined in a small area? They do need some adventure room for exercise and exploring.

Less food is necessary at this point.

But most of them do look large in length for their age. Their color and skin look good too. I have raised some that are front heavy in color and then in six months the rear color starts coming in, so you do have to wait a while to see the change. But only keep the front heavy ones if the colors are sharp and deep.

I don't know what your set up is like, but I would release the big heavy set ones into a large main pond with the big guys so they could loose some weigth. It's all a bit of work, isn't it.

Thanks for sharing. It's easier when we can learn from each other.

Well, i did the final culling today. I took some photos but they don't do the babies justice so instead i decided to take a video of each variety.

Kohaku - The kohakus turned out pretty well an i am pleased with them.


Sanke - I had very few sankes. There was 2 decent once the rest are not bad but not show quality.


Shiro Utsuri \ Bekko - The shiro and sumi on these babies are amazing. These are from a showa female and Omsako shiro male and Torazo x Dainichi male Kohaku.


Showa - I set out last year to breed a decent showa but i failed. Most had far to little beni. There are one or two that i am keeping an eye on still but to be honest most of these should be culled if they dont get red soon.

DANG!!!!

I say a job well done.

Yes you may cull a little more but I just can imagine all you culled to get to these. Any of these are better then the petshops has to offer.

Which makes it easier for the general hobbyist to have nicer koi in their ponds.

LOVE IT. Gigi

Hey gigi, there is not really any point for me to cull further. I have kept 3 kohaku, 2 sankes and 1 bekko for myself. The rest i am selling if i can. I usually have to give them away cause no one is willing to pay me for them. Yeah, sad isnt it.
