The first koi to spawn in 2015 were our Kohaku. Two years ago we purchased a nisai kohaku from Maruju with the intentions of breeder her. Although she looks thin, she was able to hold a lot of eggs. We now have a large hatch. The males we used was a gosai from breeder Matsunosuke. The second male was a sansai from Yagenji and the third male was a yonsai bred here at Ushijima Nishikigoi.

A few days later our showa bred. The female (1st from the left) is from breeder Igarashi. The males (2nd 3rd and 4th from the left) came from Isa and 2 from Maruju.
Not to be left out our Chocolate Oranda bred and dropped their eggs before we could put them in the breeding tank. The Fry hatched today.
