    A bit free over the weekend and decided to net a few koi to take portraits and measure them.

    This is my Sallymiya Yamabuki Ogon measuring 48cm. Overall, I am quite impress with the grow, skin luster and her body structure so far. The dragon's fire still remained there. I will definitely show her at SKS.

    Shiro for SKS. She is 26cm, I think I am quite sure by looking at her vent.

    That's all now, spent 1+ hour to net 3 fish....killing me, almost break my back.

    Yeah boy - that Sallymiya has bulked up so well. Must say this was an excellent breeding. I have one piece too which was kindly given to me by bro Paul - prob male but bowled it over the weekend to snap some pics (see here) and examined it with my non-expert hands and still can't determine its sex. Characteristics of a male but no milt and smooth fins, gill plates etc. Still think its male - doesn't bother me one bit and it is a great addition to my collection. Pretty enough as "he" is...if he bulks...wow.....

    Hope I can do justice to it as Paul has done.

    Ps. thanks also Sam and Sally!

    Yes. I like this ochiba too, I have been searching for years to find a good one with very reasonable price. However, I found out that he has an ulcer on the lip. Anyone know how to treat? I just transfer him to a Q-tank with S1 and salt at 0.3% and slowly increase to 0.5% by weekend. Any advise?

    Bro WSC, sounded like mouth rot turning into an ulcer. Very critical bro! Either do like what Bro M Zain suggests or alternatively inject with Ciprofloxacin. Or/and soak the fish in Interpet/Blagdon Ulcer medication (no salt please).

    Injection!! not my expert. Perhaps, soaking with Interpet/Blagdon Ulcer med sound better. Where can I get it? The quality and how long? Thank bro

    Bro you can get Blagdon from Atari but do what bro zain suggested. Mouth rot is a very serious problem if not attended early, speaking from experience here. Injection for 3 consecutive days is safer bet.

    Yup Bro Elmen,....that's my Theory....in my early days I've tried Blagdon anti Ulcer stuffs n' I find it waste of money & time.

    Injecting it with Lyncomycin is the most effective for 3 consecutive Days, you can really see the improvement after 2nd day of Injection.

    I do agree that injecting kois is the fastest and best method.. but not necessarily the easiest and safest method.. Need lots of practice or else.. you might inject in the wrong place.. or getting too deep... (drunk)

    Bro Andy, not that hard la. It is just that most Hobbyists are not familiar that's all. We can always come up with a session and share the IM and IP techniques with everyone.

    Great idea (ok)
    can take video & upload on you tube so whenever hobbyist need to do the procedure, can watch it to refresh memory.
