Re: Momotaro Tosai

I do remember the showa now. You already had it reserved before I looked at them so I didn't pay as much attention to ones that were already sold. IMO I think you got a couple of the best ones. Very nice! I look forward to seeing how they develop.

Re: PSKoi Koi Show Banner

Very nice! I really love the simple yet beautiful koi design. On a side note, do you plan to make it out to any koi shows in the midwest this year? I missed last year so I'm not sure if you made it but I know you had to cancel the year before and that was my first koi show. I'd really like to go thi...

Re: Momotaro Tosai

Nice choices! I think most of those momotaro tosai are going to turn out really nice, Russ did an excellent job getting them for us. Is that one of the few sanke that were in the mix? I know there weren't many but that one you got looks like a sanke to me. I really like it. I actually really like th...

Re: Hiroshima Breeders Auction 2/09/17

I see more than a few I would like but I get the feeling I won't be able to afford most of them. Do they have a minimum bid? How would this work, I just give you the numbers that I like with the highest I would be willing to spend? I don't want to waste your time if all these auctions are going to g...

Re: Beni stability

Beni stability has nothing to do with lightening of color due to lack of sunlight. Unstable beni will break-up/disappear with time and/or induced by stress. Beni fading indoors is temporary most of the time. This is really what I was getting at. So basically, if the Beni is good, it will come back....
