    Howdy guys

    Hey guys, I've been a member here for quite a while now, and finally decided to post a bit.

    My name is Eric Thomas, and I'm the owner of Kentucky Koi Farms. I've been around koi since I was just 4 or 5 years old, but I've kept a pond of my own for about 6 years now. I started Kentucky Koi Farms during the Spring of '08. I started out breeding and selling off the koi to local hobbyist, and local pet stores. In the Spring of '09 I received my first shipment of koi, containing over (100) 6-8" koi from Toshio Sakai of Isawa Nishikigoi Center. I could barely keep up with the great demand for koi in the area, so I expanded. In the spring of '10, I received yet another order from not only INC, but Shinoda, and Abe as well. I also made the trip down south to Hammock Koi Farm, and purchased over 400 koi. By mid summer I was doing so well, I was able to order another shipment from INC. This year I've already place my order of koi. This shipment contains koi from Abe, Suda, and Marusei.

    Some of you, Troy, Ethan, Jeremy, Dick, Steve, may know me as EricT on other forums.

    I look forward to sharing my knowledge on this forum, as well as gaining some. If any of you will be attending the Louisville Koi Show this upcoming May, stop by the booth. I'd be more than happy to talk to you.

    -Eric Thomas

    hello

    Welcome to "real koi" forum, this afternoon I just lost to myself when I think your "last"post will last 20 minutes but it less than that.

    Change the minutes to seconds, and take away the 0, and you would have been right. LOL

    Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Friends, Eric is a great young man who Listens (a lost art these days).

    Where's Dinh when you really want him?

    I hate to rain on your parade but no free adverts here unless you're a paid advertiser so I've read many times.

    You've been a member on KB for how long and just found yourself now advertising your business here? Did they run out of low hanging fruits for you to pick on the other forum?

    Flounder, I have already talked to both Dinh and Brian about advertising. I did not come here to advertise. I've been a member here almost a year, and I'm just not getting to where I can become a regular here. I'm not new to forums, so I know that you are trying to be polite, and understand I am as well, but what was "advertising" about this thread? My avatar? or my introduction? I'd also like to skip all talk about "other" forums.

    Thanks,
    -Eric
