i don't see many second hand koi selling or buying happening. Seems like there is no second hand koi market in SA. Or maybe it's happening but just don't notice it???

In SA good quality koi are very expensive so people take care from where and who they buy. To become a reliable koi dealer you have to provide KHV certificates and quarintene all new fish in seperate tanks per breeder for a minimum period of 4 weeks.

I personally will never risk buying a from an unknown dealer even if the koi is very cheap just because i don't want to risk the rest of my koi collection.

Second had koi sales do happen but it is mostly by word of mouth. In anycase if i was to sell some of my koi (meaning they become second hand) I would only sell my koi of lesser quality.

But as you said due to the risk of KHV second hand sales do not happen that often.

I should rephrase,
People buying cheaper koi tend to be less careful than those buying expensive koi.
To get a piece of the market I would suggest start with cheaper koi first and build a very good reputation before going expensive

I agree with Jaco. Start small, start cheap but try to keep your quarintene standards high. Make a name for yourself. If you sell sick fish the news will spread like a wild fire through the koi community and you will be without clients very quickly. Most koi keepers also check to see if a dealer is registered with SAKTA because that is suppose to give the client some guarentee and reccourse.

sas,
The date says 10/12/2005

If they are 4months old, spawning must have taken place in July/August 2005 if locally bred, outch! Still VERY cold around here in August.

Back into those day at 2005, i don't have a koi pond. But i have 1 male kohaku and 1 female sanke import from my small small private koi farm in Horishima of Japan, they were both +- 60cm.

Since i don't have a pond at that time, i kept them in a +-2000L containers, and i heat the water up to +-23C. And they spawn in that container. Than i raise those fry in a 1.2m fish tank, and i cull my fry every single day just to keep the number of fry down.

Keeping koi and breeding koi in tank rather than in a pond, is very common in Asia. (By the way, i don't speak English originally.) Since space is expensive, so we always try to breed koi in a small controlled enviroment.

I did an experiment with my friend in Japan, we can actually spwaning koi all year round. If we keep them in a heated and controlled enviroment. (Which is bad for the koi's health, so don't do it with your koi.)

But i lost both parent koi in an accident, air pump failure. Sad

I am only keeping low quality koi in SA now. Because i am only keeping koi for fun in SA, unlike in Japan we used to breed koi to make money.

Also, i am studying at the moment. And i am planning to do my MSC next year. So i would need to save money for my MSC, rather than koi.

But i am still planning to breed koi next year, just for fun. So, i think i will have +-100 good quality (i.e. But not very very high quality) home breed koi for myself.

The koi in the image looks very good.

I don't have those koi anymore, because in those day i don't have a fish pond. So, i don't have space to keep them. I gave all of them to my friends, that picture was taken before the day i gave to them. I actually don't want to give them away, but i don't have a koi pond or another conatiner in those day. Sad

But in those day, all of my friends who took the koi don't know any thing about koi keeping. So, i guess most of those koi in the picture is dead now. If i have a koi pond in those day, i would have kept all of them and they should be +-55 to 60cm now.

What a pretty.... Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

And gone again. Please note that if a photo has been edited or moved or deleted on photobucket, it will also not be available on the forum anymore. Please do not move or edit photos, as it leaves an incomplete and disconnected forum (as already requested in our introduction category)
