And they're multiplying like rabbits!

Feisty - DOLPHIN SAFE!

Ok, so I'm out by the pond the other day having a "forbidden smoke" (Doctors orders and such... yeah, like I listen) and look! It's a miracle! The koi are spontaneously multiplying!

Overnight, I've managed to go from seven to fourteen of the little guys lol. Immaculate spawning? I think not. I have this suspicion that the woman-children have been making after school trips to the fish store...

So... I'm doing math in what would otherwise be classified as a marginally functional, drug washed brain, trying to figure out how many inches of fish I have in this thing now. I've read that under normal pump flow and adequate filtration, one should have no more than one inch of fish for every ten gallons of water...

Hmm.. Lets see. The pond is like 1,100 gallons right now. k. got it. There's seven of the small 2 inch guys - 14 inches. Three 3 inch fish - 9 inches... One at 5 inches and four at 7 inches - 33 total inches for the bigguns. That comes to what... 56 inches of fish. Multiply by 10... comes to 560 gallons, subtracted from 1100...

Oh man... I'm half way to full capacity. I best cut the little lady off soon lol - or have a fish fry

I got a week reprieve though. Both the women-children are off on a school trip to Spain. One of the few places in Western Europe that I haven't yet been... I just hope they don't cart home some Spanish koi in their luggage lol

    Your pond sounds lovely and you obviously have a very content family of koi there!
    Good luck with the new brood!

    Are koi offsrping termed broods?
    Batch? School? Bunch? I know it ain't a gaggle...
Well... you managed it... My interest got piqued lol

I did a little checking and it seems newly hatched koi are either referred to as a batch or a bunch. (not school?) Learn something new every day

Ok, enough already... I am started to get turned on by the term "dolphin" now in your posts... my fav personal toy is a gyrating beaded dual-headed dolphin ... pretty sure that's not the kind you mean... oooops... *blushing*

Apparently the depth of depravity here is bottomless... don't you feel right at home?
