    How to choose Koi and What to, how to and when to feed them.

    Re: May 1st - Andrew's Koi annual growth contest and barbecue

    Today was my first time participating in this annual event.
    There was a good turn out and lots of "$100. Koi" purchased.
    See Annual Growing Contest for details.
    When the gates open for the sales area, within minutes, koi were floating in tubs to "reserve" them while people were deciding which koi they were going to buy.
    Very crowded around the Dainichi Showa tank.
    Since I entered the sales area late, my strategy was to pick from the koi already reserved in tubs that were not bought by the person who earlier netted them. This strategy worked for me, I bought one koi that I liked.
    I am sorry, but I did not take many pictures of this event.
    The first picture is a picture of a bunch of Ogons to select from. The second picture is a Tancho Sanke I almost purchased. There were plenty of reasons to not buy this fish. What attracted me to this fish was it would have gave me the most "bang for my money". I would be watching it every day to see what and where the sumi appeared.
    The third picture is the three fish my my friend Dan and I bought. Dan purchased two fish; the Izumiya Ogon and the Nogami Sanke. I purchased the Nogami Kohaku (see: Koi Dealers).
    The last picture is a picture I took when I got home of the four baby Koi I purchased in 2010 that I will be watching grow.
    The weather was perfect and it was a fun day.
