Re: Sekiguchi Showa Tosai 4-18-19

Interesting! I guess you’re not worried about the “window” in Beni near dorsal? I was thinking that 12 is the best one. I’d love to find out why you picked 13 over others, but especially 12. Not sure what the etiquette is about discussing fish that are for sale or have been purchased, so maybe pm i...

There are a number of simply gorgeous koi on here but I wanted to say kudos to whoever picked up 13. You saved me begging Russ for a "just let me keep it for a while" koi. :d

I do love Murata Kohaku.
Good to see that the flag is making the rounds and that they worked out a bit of leg room for your sleeping comfort. :-BD

Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Fall 2018

I have plenty of pics of the big girl, thanks to Russ, but I won't do them on this thread. Maybe when he gets back I can do a separate thread. I did do a side by side of them at the same age. The big girl edges her in skin but the one Russ posted has the similar beni quality (see the flecking of alm...

The third one reminds me a little of the big girl. What a nice score on these! I'm excited to see them come in.

Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Fall 2018

Thank you, gentlemen. I won't be "rehoming" her as we hope to find her a forever home with someone that would be willing to show her. We'd also like to recoup some of the cost of her. I paid her initial price and Russ has been a wonderful hubby and paid for her Azukari fees. I couldn't be ...

Re: Ojiya/Hiroshima/Isawa Bound PSKoi Fall 2018

I'm pretty sure she will be included when he does his travelogue later. Here's the video he sent as a teaser. I'm so pleased to see her Sumi continues to come in. The water is a little choppy, she's a big girl and stirs the water up a bit. :YMDAYDREAM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vt2inRFBMt4&...
