    You asked for "Any Comments"


    So I'll tell ya...
    FEWER fish in a shot...and we do not need to see a bunch of koi splashing in a bowl ruining the perspective of every fish in the bowl.
    Settle the fish down before shooting pics
    have very few fish in each picture

    Imagine our perspective...we don't deal in Numbers of fish
    We deal in very few fish
    You see your fish as a group because you see them as a Whole Spawn and measure your success in terms of the Whole Spawn
    We do not want to see a buncha fish splashing in a bowl.

    Show us your top ten fish...show them in 5 pics of 1-3 fish in each shot...give them a little more water to swim in so they aren't splashing and ruining the perspective of their body shapes.

    Dan, I'll echo Eugene's comment. These are an improvement. You are improving your eye for selection. Maybe in a year or so it will be time to upgrade the parent fish. Of course, that means having to decide what variety you most enjoy raising, what grows best for you and is worth the investment. You're obviously having fun 'playing in the mud'.

    thanks for advise Luke. Trying to do better with pictures. Have 75 pieces of shiro utsuri so its hard to just pick several.

    Yep, Now you understand your point of veiw, and our perspective. On your Koishack thread you post some good examples of "group shots" of fish for sale by a Japanese breeder...try and copy that

    I have been upgrade parent koi for last 2 years, just takes time to see result. Omosaka shiro utsuri, Toshio Sakai kohaku, showa, sanke, ginrin kohaku, Shinoda doitsu showa and sanke.

    Look what visited my mud ponds!

    Did you know Mike you can go to #1 oriental super market on west 50, look in frozen section for a product called Dak Dae. It is frozen, fresh silkworm pupae at $2 a pound! Believe it or not, the Koreans stir fry it for the high protein content. If it is good enough for human consumption, good enough for my koi. Stand back when feeding this food. Just be sure not to feed below 75 water temp. Be sure to save me some.

    Dan, what kind of bird are those? They're beautiful but probably deadly.
