Guys,

I am slowly building my pond, but with the big show on in May, is it worth setting up a QT setup and buying then or would i be able to get equally great fish later on in the year?

Its not that i want to join the show circut although i have not ruled that out, but i would really like some awesome looking koi in my pond, something more than the run of the mill pond fish !

any thoughts?

Hi Neil
There is no reason why you cannot find good koi at the show. There is always reputable dealers at the show and you can always speak to them and give them a budget for when they go to japan.
You can be specific on what you want and size as well.

Thanks

Hi Neil

There will be a lot of dealers at the show, and you will have a very large variety to choose from, all "under one roof".

I am flying up some very decent imports from Sakai Matsunosuke bloodline, Aoki, Hiroi, Chogoro, Miyatora and Hirasawa.
