I am 16 and wanting to get into the koi breeding business and was wondering what size pond should I make to breed a decent amount of koi and have enough fish and room to sell quite a few 3 to 5 inch koi and raise some koi to bigger sizes to sell later I also live in michigan and was wondering because we have very cold winters how deep should I make the pond. I was also wondering if you also had any tips on how to find people and places to sell these fish to and the average going prices for various size butterfly koi. And thank you for this wonderful article. And thank you for your time

how to breed japanese koi fish Breeding your koi is not a decision to take lightly. It is definitely not something you can accomplish in a weekend! You need to realize that breeding koi will be a long-term investment of both time and money. The prime time to breed koi is from April until July, so if it is later in the year when you are reading this, all the better. You will have plenty of time to plan and prepare for koi fish breeding.

Healthy Koi Mean Healthy Offspring
You will need healthy koi for breeding, of course. Pick your healthiest Koi for this venture, as this will assure that they are able to spawn offspring that will be of high quality. Choose koi that are around 25 cm in length. This will ensure that the fish are sexually mature. Your Koi male needs to be about three years old and no more than five years old. The female koi should be around four to six years old. Interestingly, the age of the female Koi has a lot to do with how hard the shells of her eggs will be. Thin-shelled eggs may not live, while eggs from a female older than five will have such hard shells that the sperm from the male is not able to penetrate them.

Time is of the Essence
Once you have picked out the fish you want to breed, it is best if you do not rush into breeding right away. Take some time to feed up and condition your fish so as to assure yourself of good results. Set up a tank or a pond for spawning, and then place one male and two females in this area when they are ready for best spawning results.

Signs of Spawning
The white, raised spots on the pectoral fins and on the head can help you spot males who are ready to spawn. These are called breeding tuberdes, and if you were to touch them, you would find that they feel rather rough, something like a day old growth of facial hair. The breeding tuberdes are used by the mail to try to encourage the female to spawn.How to Raise Koi – The One Thing You Really Need The most important thing you need when learning how to raise koi, and the one thing you cannot do without, is good reliable information.
