News from Japan - Its breeding season!
Thanks to Kensuke at Shintaro Koi Farm for sending me a few videos this morning of the Shintaro Koi being spawned.
There are 7 sets of parent Koi
3 Sanke sets
2 Kohaku sets
2 Showa sets
When the Koi spawn which will probably be anytime now. They will then be released as eggs into 28 fry ponds which Shintaro Koi Farm have just for the fry.
The Tosai we bought on the last buying trip to Japan are from exactly a year ago, so these Koi will be what we buy next March/April.
We will bring more when the fry are more advanced.
