Shubunkin Males and Females

These are my favorite females:

And these are my favorite males:
Went to the Roseburg Koi show this past weekend and picked up a new male to add to the rescue Sarasa from a few weeks ago.

Oishi Ranchu

A friends 3 year old Japanese TVR ranchu.

Thursday, June 5, 2008

It was a busy day. Met with a water Lily grower who wants to control duck week in his greenhouses. I of course recommended goldfish and suggested that I could let some of my fish eat it for him. If all works out I might have a wonderful place to ranch my fish. If all works out grow out space/over wintering space could be virtually unlimited as there are dozens of greenhouses!

Then I met with a pond filtration customer to go watch/help remove a neighbors large koi so they could be taken to the pond shop for 4 weeks of warm quarantine for Koi herpes before they were added to her pond. It was sad to see the end of a beautiful pond. The owner passed away and his wife couldn't take care of it anymore. I'm going to remove the filters and put them to use here.

There were 8 goldfish in the pond and no one wanted them. The koi people wanted a very nice sarassa male with long white fins. When she said she wanted one I hoped she didn't want the same one I wanted.

He's a metallic red and white finned Jade Seal male. Here's an underwater (Olympus stylus 770sw) close up showing off his breading stars.

Here's a girlfriend for him how's about 2 days from spawning.
