Customer Comment

 
I have a one-year-old pond koi whose gender I have yet to figure out. I was just wondering if you could tell me a means of figuring that out and is it too much trouble, if I were to order a matching fish, to assure the gender of that fish to be the opposite of the one I have? My one koi is looking sort of lonely, kind of like s/he might want to start a family or a committed long-term relationship.
 
Thank you very much,
Max S.
 
 
Reply. Here is the short answer, I can't tell the gender of Koi by looking at them. So I can't tell you how to determine the gender of your Koi, and I can't pick one of the opposite gender from those in my facility to send you. I would do it for you, if I could, but I don't know how to distinguish males from females.

At least not for Koi that are one year old and a few inches long. Professional Koi breeders can tell a lot more than I can, after they've been breeding Koi for many years. When we visit their Koi farms to buy Koi from them, they'll often say, "There is one of my best breeding females". As they point to a huge Koi, that is perhaps 16" long.

Professional fish breeders can often predict which fish are males and which are females long before the fish spawn and confirm which gender they are. When I've asked professional koi breeders how they make these accurate predictions, I've always gotten an answer that doesn't help me. Often they'll say that they cannot predict with more than about 80% accuracy anyway.

Some people have said that professional breeders really do know how to do it, and just don't want to share their knowledge, because the knowledge that they share might help other people to spawn more fish and compete with them. But most of the people that I've known that produce lots of fish are very willing to share all their secrets. But they often can't put into words how they do it.

Here is some math. If you have room in your pond for three more Koi, the probability that all three of the new Koi will be the same gender as the Koi you now have is 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8 = 12.5%. So the odds of having at least one male and one female are 87.5%. Those are pretty good odds.

Incidentally, I have a beautiful Comet Goldfish in my barrel pond by my front door. All last summer I was convinced that this Comet was a slim male. But this winter it looks like my slim male Comet has been getting plumper and filling with eggs to lay in the early spring. Click here to see my Pond Comet.

I just wanted to take the time to thank you for the black koi I ordered.I looked In every pet store within 50 miles and no one had a black koi for sale. And he looks healthier then half the fish I've purchased so far.
 
Thanks
Rick
 
 
Reply. Hello Rick. Glad to know your Black Koi arrived in good condition. Thank you for your email.

Hi, I'm Richard ... and I just rec'd my order today. It arrived at 11:30 AM EST and all the fish were in excellent shape, even though they traveled across the country last night.
 
Just wanted to let you know that the Garra Pingi Pingi (4) that I had purchased a few months back are really doing well. They have almost doubled their size and they dart around my pond and chase each other all over. They are fast becoming favorites to all most everyone who sees them.
 
Just for your info my pond is three feet deep and nine by fourteen feet. So far, besides from the Koi, Orfes, Comets and Shubunkins, all of my goldfish are doing great.
 
I have a pearl scale that has been with me for three years and is every bit of eight inches long. It is with out a doubt the prize of the pond as everyone loves it. Thanks again, and please keep me informed of anything else that becomes available for outdoor pond owners in cold climates.
 
Thanks again,
Rich
