Jeff have you switched over to feeding your koi Wheatgerm and Garlic yet ?Ok. Thank you Dave. I have a feeling it's to much food. The lady where I bought my last 4 koi said that I should feed them at least 3 to 4 times a day to fatten them up for the winter. But I will definitely pull the big one out and have a look.
oh man this can not happen!!! It looks like the Enterprise from Star Trek going into warp drive!!! Tonight I've learned to get the garlic wheat germ food and make spawn mops this winter!! WHAT do you do with all those babies?I don't separate the females to spawn in seperate tanks. I use spawn mops and just move them to hatchery ponds.... heres a clip inside one of my hatchery / nursery ponds.
the chasing is definitely indicative of spawning, you tend to see foam on the waters surface if it was.
How many koi do you have?Survival of the fittest in my pond.
Very few of the multitude make it but the ones that do are strong. Love seeing the little babies but I know that my pond can only hold so many fish. It all seems to balance out w/ big fish eating the little ones and lots of the eggs also. Feeding my fish now till the temps go down below 50's consistently to fatten them up good for winter.
