I spotted two angels that I thought were males cleaning the filter intake and chasing everyone off so I setup a tank and moved them last night and I awake to a slate of eggs :woohoo:

Here's some shots of my breeding setup completely full

New pair gold marble veil (M) and panda koi (F) with a slate of eggs


Another new pair dark smokey super veil (M) and red koi (F) with a slate of wigglers


About 100 3 week old free swimmers from a gold marble veil (M) and red koi (F)


Dime size gold marble ghost veils from first spawn ever

nice were you looking for certain pairings or just happy to get pairs?

the smokey and red koi should have really nice babies :)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

I would love to do same thing with bettas but I dont have room :(

Ya I'm trying to establish my genetic pool right now then hope to start building my fish room after the beginning of the year. If you can ever find a place for a small breeding setup I recommend it I'm really enjoying this

Right now I have two 20h with pairs in them and another 20h with the 100 free swimmers then the dimes are in a 10g, once I build my racks I'll have 4 20h for pairs, 4 10g to pull the eggs to and grow out the fry, and 4 55g to grow out to selling size
