So after weeks of trying to convince myself that I can set up 30 extra tanks and keep them all. I decided to keep this one!!! He reminds me so much of Tiger (dad) pattern and personality. He is now living happily in my 10 gallon nano planted tank. As you can see he is slowly turning yellow just like dad.



And just FYI, I believe they are ready to go to their forever homes. This week I will be taken new photos and videos of all of the available ones to make a thread on the Sale section of the forum. I’ll post a link here once I do.

You have to factor in the fact that I have 4 tanks. 1 in the bathroom, 2 in my bedroom (literally have no place to put it) and one in my living room. I am at maxed capacity. I really might try though

I love this thread.

While we may not agree on everything, I do enjoy the babies and watching this as they have grown. Good job!

I wish I could capture in camera how beautiful this metallic boy is. He looks purple when the light hits! And he is HUGE! They are all 5 months today and he is already as big if not bigger than dad.

Btw he was blowing a bubble when I took the photo. So funny

You are on to something....my kitchen is so small I can't make multiple things at once. So unless I put the fish next to the coffee machine I don't think I'll be able to squeeze it. Maybe if I land a new job

Jealous!!! Can’t find a koI female anywhere. And I’m personally not gunna spend 50 plus on one to be shipped.
So I’m breeding mine with a HM female that’s the same color, and I’m hoping to get some cool results. These are Gorgeous!
Do you sell n ship? Lol.

Its been a while since I updated this thread. New job and have been extremely busy but here is a quick update on some of the boys:

The B-# on the photo is for me to identify them in the cups.

One of my females is turning into a yellow koI pattern just like Tiger. And if you look at (B-3) he is also turning into a yellow koi. So that might be my next breeding pair.





b-2 and 5 - are identical!

I think B1 is my favorite. Pretty sure it's the same one from some other pics that I thought was cool, since the eye looks like it's 1/2 blue, 1/2 black.

lovely girl! one of tiger's daughter and son looked just like him, the same yellow and black koI pattern. I might use them for my next breeding project.

Quick Update: I know a lot of you were wanting to buy some but with my new job I have been so busy that I haven't had much time to update this thread and set up a new thread selling the fish.

Now I only have a few left, must have been sold already to people locally.
