    Hello PapaBear, I am very lucky to have Junichi san as My friend and My sensie. I have learn so much from him through these years and If you want to learn how to grow fish big and fast in a small area, He is the man to learn it from.

    We also breed in My back yard for learning purpose. Junichi san had took some babies home to care for over the winter. I was at his home over this past weeken. I kid you not !!!! About 40 of those little babies koi from
    1-2" has grown to 10-12" in a 100 gal. aquarium in six months.

    I will post some pictures of My shiro when I can upload the attachment and Thanks PapaBear.
