Re: Taniguchi Sanke

Thanks Marilyn, these progress look and learn threads are always very insightful. I really like this Sanke and everything seems to be moving in the right direction with her.

I am a sucker for the pattern on the third one here. I think this is going to make an awesome big fish.

Re: Ojiya/Tokyo/Hiroshima/Isawa bound PSKoi Winter 2018

After all these wonderful photos, I am ready to rip the cover off my pond and get going. Unfortunately, I have few more weeks to keep things covered. Never had been a sanke fan, but think I am officially converted now between the show and the tosai you found. Thanks for your time taking and posting ...

Re: AJKS - Congratulations Mark Corser

Congrats! Well deserved honor. The three of you are great ambassadors to the hobby, and by doing well, the rest of us have been allowed to tag along from afar.

Do you expect to find and kohaku tosai at your stops after the show? These big girls are too nice for my wallet.

Re: Ojiya/Tokyo/Hiroshima/Isawa bound PSKoi Winter 2018

"that combination of refined funky pattern and body shape "

I was thinking that, and admiring how nice those two kohaku were, but did not know that was a Murata trait. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled more, though they are usually too far ahead of my wallet.

Love my 3 Kobayashi koi :-BD though the first year they were slow to get going as opposed to some others. Patience almost got the best of me.

Re: Ojiya/Tokyo/Hiroshima/Isawa bound PSKoi Winter 2018

I swore to myself I wouldn't follow the next buying trip, but the temptation was too great lol! Those Goshiki tosai are amazing !!!


I am definitely following but don't know enough about goshiki to pull the trigger on any, going to see what else turns up
