Wow! This is amazing. Thanks for sharing. I didn't know you can fertilize the eggs dry.

A few questions:
1. May I know why you were wiping the ranchu's stomach? To clear the shit or to stimulate the laying of the eggs and milt?
2. I saw you using a litmus paper or some piece of paper to do something to the male. But I couldn't see it as it was beyond the video shot. Were you trying to absorb the milt, and then mixed it with the eggs?
3. You were using your hand to mix the eggs after adding water I assume you were trying to spread out the eggs. But you did it very violently. Won't most of the eggs be crushed? But I saw many of the fries survived. Interesting

Sorry for all the questioning. Very curious.

Congrats!

Thanks bros,
many information about dry spawning online. I also learn from here.
wiping the tail and it's anal is to remove water, this is important to keep the eggs 'fresh' for much longer time while extracting the milts from the male.
I used fine nylon mesh to collect the milts and mixed to the eggs.
add water and stir vigorously is to separate the eggs apart and fertilize the eggs, shell are quite tough, no worry crushing them.
cheers

beautifully done.
thanks for sharing and ur amazing fertilised rate .

btw, how do u know they can have eggs to be milked out , or there is a "triggering" factor first ?

just a suggestion, for the milt , perhaps good to get a small plastic pipette like thing to get it easier and then drip it onto the eggs.
I see them being sold in lfs or maybe daiso.

This is the IMPOSTER who copied the Japanese breeder video and uploaded as though he is the one doing the dry handspawning...

thanks bro,
if a pair is ready to spawn, the male will chase the female from behind, mostly happen early in the morning during spring/raining season.
i find it is much easier to collect milts using the nylon mesh, my fish very small so milts also very little and i worry pipette might hurt the fish if they struggle...

Hi bro Richard,
i learnt from that video clip also, well done!
you should report the imposter to youtube not AF...
cheers

A complain was made to youtube Admin few years back....I think he changed his name to NBO Aquatic and reposted the videos again.

Anyway the idea of sharing is to show that youtube videos can be copied and if used ethically can helps one further our knowledge on goldfish keeping. I used to copy videos onto thumb drives and keep them for reviews.

On rare occasions and knowing especially the owner of the youtube videos will delete the videos especially if the fishes are for sale and once sold, the videos will be taken down....if it is a very good fish, I will copy the video using youtube downloader like YTD and tag video as private or unlisted so that it is accessible only through private viewing. For example Master Suzuki kazuo uses his youtube channel to post fishes for sale and once sales done, the video is deleted. Some of the fishes he put up for sale are very good grade fishes so I like keep a copy for learning.
