:hi

 

So lets start this thread about my Sakura Oranda spawn, they hatched yesterday and it is a big spawn, more than 1000 wee lill' wigglers :pease:

It has been quite busy caring for the eggs, my other fish and getting all the supplies i will need this week. But all is done and the first batch of BE is cooking!

 

Very exiting obviously, trying to keep it all manageable. Incubation took 4 days at 22C. I WC 50% 2 times per day.

 

The eggs after 48 hours.

Hatching on day 4, they are born on december 8th 2014.

Thanks all for the interest! Much appreciated!

 

 

You must have an excellent camera.  So, should I plan my fish pick-up for June? :rofl

 

Yes i can take a Nikon from work now, much better. My wife took most of the pictures though :thumb:

 

Dont know i i still have them in June, i doubt i can keep that many fish in the fishroom for that long. Youre welcome though!

 

That is so exciting.

Will they all be Sakuras too? (I have little to no idea about how goldfish traits are passed)  

 

Probably many Sakura and some Calico. Some metallic aswell, i have finished the spawn crossing to a Thai RW male.

I need to either sell them early, so have them colour up early aswell, or find more room indoors to grow them out. Probably have to do both.....

 

We will have to see how they grow and what the quality is, but i do need to cull alot of these.

 

They are getting free swimming now, so i have still some time to plan ahead and prepare.

From this video and your past Ranchu diary video and after culling its look your patch end with few high quality fish , i plan to earthen pond my patch after one month age , medium quality offspring with good price about 2$ .

Lots of fry, lots of work! Good thing i have the hollidays coming.....

 

Anyway i had some time to make a small vid of the Oranda fry this morning, hope you enjoy!

 

 

Allthough overjoyed with the fry, i feel sad because i lost one of the sakura females, the prettier not spawning one. She just went in a matter of hours, i found she had some gilldamage but i think the whole import and spawning stress may just have been too much for her. Doing my best to keep the other two sakura on the road to recovery, they at least stopped actively chasing so i hope they will get better soon!

 

The BBS hatchery is running smoothly now, and the second batch of fry has finished hatching today, so second batch is from 15 december 2014.

 

Ill try to update more often, next couple of weeks ill spend alot of time in the fishroom! :fishtank

Thank you for the kind responses,

 

The other two Sakura's seem to be OK again, even more so they even contributed a third spawn! 

 

Now to figure out how to stop their spawning spree, enough is enough! Anyone have any ideas, maybe a cold shower??? :rofl

The second spawn is eating their first BBS at this moment and the first spawn is growing fast!

 

After the other sakura died i replaced all filtermedia and cleaned everything as thorough as i could. I really hope this will be ok and whatever caused the death of the other sakura female is under controll now. 

 

Ill make a video next weekend, lots to do for christmas aswell!
