I had perfect conditions in the pond before the spawn.
Do you think they could be left out for their first winter or do you think I should bring them in as well…separate aquarium? Just a few weeks you will likely start seeing darting little koi and goldfish fry around the edges of your pond; swimming in and out of the rockwork and plants where they will grow out until they are real deal baby fish.
Please what can I do as this chasing is becoming more aggressive. What is a spawning Mop? Will the eggs of the koi float down stream? Usually the adults deals with most of the babies.
Hi Steve. I am making an outdoor water garden with live plants floating, submerged, marginal, rooted floating. Try using a diffuser that will create very small air bubbles and does not put out too much pressure.
I would not wait to introduce them to the 30 gallon tank and leave the little guys in the 5 gallon to grow up a bit more. Hey Gary. All types of goldfish reach sexual maturity at the age of 1 year if given a proper diet and enough space to thrive.
This can be done by providing comet goldfish with a wide variety of vegetables and Spirulina based flakes or pellets. See the fish are spawning now. Start improving the diet of your goldfish.
Should I buy a new aquarium kit or just get a 5 gallon tank and an aerator? Mike we have 25 koi we have had our pond for 8 years this year we got lucky noted spawning I removed plants after we have babies… My question is they are one month old and a few of them have some visible black but the rest are completely white or cream it was a flock spawn when will I see color in them or will they stay whitish cream? Yes they will progress on their own just fine for a while.
Finely crushed flake food, or finely crushed pellets; the powder at the bottom of a food container is also good to use. They are all still brown. So, I guess any tips for training the fish to avoid the birds or should I just leave them to learn to be quick?
