Hi Al

On 1 December 2008 i spawned my 66cm Torazo female kohaku with 1 Torazo male and 1 Dainichi male.

The Torazo female was purchased from Cape Koi Aquarium and aswell as the Torazo male. The dainichi kohaku was purchased from Platinum koi.

This was my first atttempt to spawn and i think everything went off very well. The majority of the spawning turned out to full red with a few exceptions, i think that is because the parent koi was mostly full pattern. there are some Tancho's and very few patterned kohaku.

Here are some of the big ones measuring 16cm.





Sien Bobby, hulle swem reg. lol!

Is the photo taken just after you feed them?

Hi Wayne,

If the photo is taken just after feeding than i assume this is not their true body shape.

Hi Wayne,

This kohaku is not that bad, i guess when the koi grow bigger the pattern will look better.

To get better pattern you need to cull those all red and all white ones in a early stage. Because those all red and all white ones will grow faster and eat the one with better pattern.

regards,
SAS

Heres a updated picture of my home bred kohaku. Image is unaltered. The kohaku is now 1yr 3 months old (You can see it in the first photo above) - thats from when it was spawned as an egg till now. Its currently 46cm long...i think that is not bad for a home bred. What do you think?

knowing how difficult the backyard breeding thing is I think its very good. Very impressed with growth. I stand under correction that 46cm at 15 months is better than many tosai will do who get here as 1y olds of 22-25cm

Thanks Paul and Quinton. Backyard breeding is a challenge cause you cant raise all the eggs and have to dump many of them...so you might be chucking grand champions away. The remainder that i grew on turned out mostly plain red or plain white. There where very few with pattern. Even the one i gave to Eugen that has a decent pattern does not have good Ojima. The Ojima is too big in my own opinion but it did take 1st in Size 1 last year.

Yes this particular koi does not have a good pattern but i can guarentee you that it will do well on points for colour quality and body shape. The red is very intense and the white is pure white. As you guys know i dont feed any colour enhancer. This koi took 2nd place last year at the cape show.

What is really impressing me it the growth. If you read back in the thread about the growth...3 months after it was spawned i entered it into the george show at around 18-20cm. The parent koi where spawned the 1st of December 2008.

Thank you Miya Oki Koi (what is your name). i wish i could take credit for it but it is all about the bloodline in the end. I am simply doing the culling.

Im trying to get a photo of the brother and sister of this one, i gave them to my friend Eugen. He entered her into a koi show in 2009 and took size 1 kohaku - he has not shown her ever again. Turned out into a stunning fish and it has a excellent pattern. With this Kohaku spawning i had very few patterned kohakus.
