Big Koi eatting Little Koi Question

Post by Michael E. Rohd » Sun, 09 Jul 2000 04:00:00



I have had several females spawn in my pond several times now. To my
surprise I now have a bunch on one inch long Koi swimming around. My
question is:

Do the *** Koi (6"-12" long) eat these babies. If they do, how big
will they have to be to be out of danger of being eaten.

Thnaks,
Mike

Yea, lots get lost.  I lose thousands to the filter system.  It seems that
once they reach 1/2" to 1", they're pretty well safe from others eating
them.  Problem is though, over a year or two, you'll have more fish than is
healthy for your pond.  The culling is tough unless you have lots of friends
with empty ponds.
