Breeding Koi

Postby cheech » Sun Oct 25, 2009 8:16 pm

Hi All,

Some of my koi spawned this year, but I was not expecting it.

I was wondering if anybody can recommend any books, articles about breading koi that I can read up over the winter ?

We have some spare land so I am thinking of digging a mud pond. Nothing serious, just for the fun of it, It may stop me hankering after purchasing more and more koi.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Duncan,

Many thanks, excellent imformation.

I've seen mud ponds treated with lime to kill off any nasties before they are refilled and also read that spawning ponds are treated with chickrn sh-t, fertiliser, etc, just wondered if you could overdose with these items ? Or should I say what doseage is recommended ?
One last question, why chicken manure ?, would well rotted horse manure do the same job ?

Sorry if these are obscure questions, but I fancy digging a small mud pond, just in case I can catch some spawning next year.

Many Thanks

Gary

hi gary
yes they use lime i would think no explination would be needed for this but i have no idea how much they use

yes chicken s**t is spread around the edges it helps the pond form narural water fleas etc which is good for the fry

i used cow s**t once it did work i would think horse would as well

i had an old pond up the top of the garden once it has filled with rain water and then with leaves believe it or not this would as well it was teaming with pond life

or i know a place where you can buy rotifier cultures to start your own get that blanket weed going it great for this purpose

in fact i can tell you a placew where to get really high protein fry powder in set micron sizes dependant on age of fry

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for the info, I presume the lime is to kill of any nasties before filling.

I'd be interested to know where you can get rotifyers and fry food, please?

Thanks
