Purdin’s Yamaguchi Showa Selection for 90,000 Gallon Grow Out Pond

On the 11th June I posted about the completion of mud pond selections of the Yamaguchi Showa at Purdin Koi Farm – http://nishikigoi.life/2018/06/11/purdin-koi-farm-yamaguchi-showa-mud-pond-selection-completed/. Quite where the interim 2 weeks or so have gone I have no idea, time simply flies by, the days all seem to roll into one. Having been inside for 2 weeks, and treated with malachite and formalin, followed by potassium permanganate, to ensure they are taking nothing with them, it was time for the selection to be made for those that would go into one of the 90,000 gallon grow out ponds for the next...

First week back at Purdin Koi Farm

There has been lots going on at Purdin Koi Farm since my return on 23rd May. First off there was the ‘short’ trip up to the Greater Louisville Koi and Goldfish Show. The show had a really good atmosphere with hobbyists travelling from all over the USA to visit.  Our journey of around 11 hours was very typical of the sort of journey made by many. On return to the farm, since Tuesday the focus has been on selection of fry from this years spawning. I covered the main 2 spawning nights here – http://nishikigoi.life/2018/04/22/purdin-koi-farm-a-new-season-about-to-begin/ and here – http://nishikigoi.life/2018/05/07/purdin-koi-farm-second-round-of-spawning/. A final...
