Hi All

I spent Tuesday at Sakura Koi Farm with Costa and Mark. took some photos of their latest arrivals from Japan, the Koi were all very exceptional but the qualities of the showa were the best I have seen. There were GinRin Showa, Showa, Goshiki, Kohaku, Sanke and GinRin Shiro Utsuri, here are some photos any comments
Thanks once again to Costa and Mark for a wonderful day.

cheers cheers

Hi Marius,
Costa is only allowing pre paids to buy at this stage and then only after the Durban show can we approach him again. He has different sizes and the price well, not available yet, but man, exceptional fish.

oh no Joe.....you cannot show me pics of showa's...I go all moggy.

Just phoned Costa, pretty much growing them on, but for an idea the 18-28cm showa's are going from R1500 - R2000 and are from Dainichi blood line.

But as Joe said, for after the Cape\Durban shows, still pretty much in QT now
