How to breed koi step by step

 How to breed koi step by step

  1. Choose high quality breeders (gwapo og gwapa) handsome and beautiful, law of nature if the parents are beautiful then absolutely the offspring would be the same.remember to choose breeders age 4 to 5 years old reason, because if breeders are too young their eggs layer membrane will be too thin and the offspring might not survive,  if too old the eggs membrane layer will be too thick that sperm will have hard time to penetrate 
  2. Keep them away from opposite sex for a month to allow optimal spawning. distance makes the heart grow fonder he he 
  3. Feed them with rich in protein foods about 30 to 40% protein and varied live foods, like mosquito larvae, daphnia, brine shrimp and blood worms. (but don't feed them at least 1 day prior to placing them to the breeding tank, reason for this is you will avoid them to shit a lot on your breeding tank that might spoil the water easily by their casting. 
  4. After a month prepare the breeding tank with fresh clean water and spawning medium with it, spawning mop or live plants, Kois tend to make nest in the wild to stick their eggs. It would be best also to let them spawn during full moon.
  5. Place two male and one female breeder early at night and check them early at 5 am if they spawn already, you will notice the males will chase the female and bump them to the wall and spawning media, the eggs will stick and fertilize in this time. 
  6. Removed the breeders after spawning since after spawning the breeders will eat their eggs. place plenty of aeration to the tanks and add mytheline blue so that the eggs wont be attack by fungus.
  7. After 4 days the eggs will be hatch 
  8. after they are free swimming feed them with brine shrimp or daphnia.
