    Hello everyone :)
    As some of you know I have 13 baby koi and 2 baby golden orfe in my 45G long for the winter and thought I would just give everyone an update :)

    All of the koi are colouring up wonderfully :) and everyone is growing well :D

    The biggest koi is a silver ghost koi (now developing orange fins :D) and she has been spawning with the little men :D Thankfully the eggs are being eaten, ive got enough babies to deal with for now :D

    Im starting to get diatoms so I guess its time to up my water changes a little :)

    I will update this thread every now and again for those of you who are interested :)

    Thanks,
    Ben

    That's awesome to hear that your fishies are doing well :)
    I have a pond full of koi and goldfish.
    Do you regularly breed the golden orfe's?

    Ah okay, I was wondering since Orfe's are so hard to find around here.
    Can't wait for pics! :)
