    Play-on-words in the title :)
    No but seriously...my koi is extremely pregnant and still has not spawned. It's the end of June!! She was about to spawn a couple of days ago, but she's so fussy that when she saw me, everything stopped.

    The boys should handle things quite vigorously when it is time.

    Nice play on words @Jenny ;)

    My koi have also been coy this season in the love game. My boys have their sand-papery cheeks on, the gals are plump with eggs... and no spawning yet! I've seen a few chases, but they just kind of give up and quit. I don't need the mess, nor do I need more fish (although I think it is great fun to see a few surviving "pond babies"), but I would like the girls to get their eggs out for health and comfort at least. There is still time...
