    24c, 850 gallons, feeding 16g of Queni Koi Tosai Grower 16 times a day. Now have 32 fish in there ranging from 18cm to roughly 30cm. The smaller ones came in at about 10cm at the beginning of March, just 10 each mix for a bit of fun, but they have almost doubled in size, in fact a Chag and a Kujaku have almost trebled.

    EDIT: It's 12g not 16g, I was looking at the wrong notes.

    Thats excellent progress, I would love a grow on myself but unfortunately not at the cost of castration! Maybe if/when we move house to hopefully a bigger place with a lot more space and land I will sneak a grow on shed in and have a little system in place. I would assume that because your fish are Nisai they would grow slower than Tosai too?

    Yes, tosais growing at a faster rate but I'm pretty pleased with the Nisai growth I got from the 4 above.

    Every single one of them looks to have improved. You must have a good eye for choosing them.

    I like the doitsu Sanke in particular.
