  • Updated pictures of my Blue Babies

    It has been a while since I posted updated pictures of the Philippine Blue and Red Capped Koi fry I've been raising. They are about 5 months old now. Some are showing slight hints of blue in their ventral fins, but I do not expect to see much blue as they are all single dose. They are actually Gold Marble Ghosts het Philippine Blue (het = single dose).

          Thanks everyone. They are not much larger than quarter sized. Koi angels are very slow to grow. The only thing slower are the DD Black angels. But, once they start to grow they can triple in size in less than a month.

            I'm expecting my DD black angels to be about full grown by the time I graduate college. (I'm 17...) lol

              My two have doubled in size since I got them but have slowed down got now which is good as hopefully I'm getting my new angels Monday and if they grow faster it will stop Herschel being a pain

                Great shots Dena! Some great coloring already, and I love young angels "perma-flare" with their fins, so cute.

                    They will all grow at their own rate! I doubt you'll have aggression issues, but if you do just do a little redecorating. That always helps!

                    Thanks Matt. Yes, that perma-flare makes for some great photos if you are lucky enough to catch them in that split second where they stop moving!

                    Eventually, yes. But as I have so few survivors I am going to keep them to start a breeding program with this line. For now, I have standard Koi to move out.

                      Cute! They look extremely healthy. You're doing a great job!

                      Weird that your DDs are growing so slow. Mine grew REALLY fast.

                        Very Nice... Gold Marble Ghosts are surprisingly different.... personality wise...

                          It has only been another month, but these guys are starting to show their blue coloring. As they have a single dose of the blue gene, I did not expect to see this much blue!

                              Well, as you posted in the thread last month, I am sure you have to of seen it before...lol

                              Thank you. I am really getting anxious for them to mature and pair off. Their offspring should be even better! My goal is to be able to create a Koi Paraiba! Can you imagine a lovely orange/black/white koi with those blue patches?
