Showa fry produced from Sekiguchi parents are now 3 months old.
First selection was completed at 6 weeks old when fry were approx an inch long- selection was to remove deformities and dull coloured koi.
10,000 approx down to 500.
At 3 months the next selection takes place- deformities will be very few now body shape and potential pattern will play a bigger part in the process of growing and selecting the koi.
- to be continued.
