In this way, do koi fish eat their eggs?

Koi are known to munch on their own eggs. Because koi fry have such small mouths, they need smaller sized food. Koi fry need to eat liquid or small suspended-particle food for their first few days of life.

Similarly, how do you take care of koi eggs? If you do want to care for the eggs and raise the fry, you will need to remove the eggs from the main tank. If you do not remove the eggs, chances are that the adult Koi fish will eat most or all of the eggs. Fish tend to do this in general, not just Koi fish. Ideally, you should gather the eggs before they hatch.

Also, how do you know if a koi egg is fertilized?

Eggs that were never fertilized will turn white and fuzzy, while fertilized eggs will become clear. With a close look, you may be able to see the two eyes developing in the baby koi.

How many eggs do koi lay?

The female is capable of carrying around 100,000 eggs for every 1kg of body weight. So a female of 10kg in weight will pass 1,000,000 eggs of which 60% will hatch.
