    I will be there for sure! I can't wait to learn from our judges and finally see some of those Purdin koi that I've heard so much about.

    I'm definately coming!! Where and when will there ever be another assembly of great judges (Ron Goforth, JR, and Junichi "Super Kindai") for you to pick their brains as well as have them give you opinion and advice about your collection.
    There are rumors that many Dainichi kois will surface and compete for all major awards. I hear there will be many big and high quality kois to see, 2 weeks seems such a long way to wait.

    For those that don't know, this show has a constant flow through system in all of the show tanks thus having no stagnant water. I guess Ray is so used to this that he didn't even think about it.

    HI Ryan,

    Thanks for the reminder. Yes pure cool (74F) well water is used to keep each tanks water clear, stable, and healthy for our koi. It is state of the art water quality for sure.

    So how is your Dallas Grand Champion winner looking? Do you plan to challenge for a sweep of the Texas Koi Shows this year?

    Is this a similar kind of flow through system that is used at Spokane Koi Show? Inland Empire Water Garden & Koi Society . I got a chance to see that system and study about that system. It is amazing that people comming with ideas like these.

    Its a great idea for clearing the water, so that the water dont look soggy. Since the water is not changed all off a sudden, it is good for the koi. And that too "pure cool well water", it should be a treat.

    Antony.

    So Ray , you are saying each tank is set up with its own pipe in flow and out flow. These tanks are not connect together on inflow, correct? That is a lot of out flow water, how do you handle that? Where does it go, canal, stream, ect?
