    Hey Duc we both know Ryan only drinks his coffee in the US.... and you know that I enjoy only KOI in Japan . We both know how Japanese celebrate after a purchase of a koi... coffee shops are not available in Japan, but they have other KOI related things to do in Japan..... right Duc .

    I second that rumor Dick, I always wonder how he does the " DUC SHAKE " without his coffee ........

"I enjoy the BODY CONFORMATION" here in San Jose along with good coffee. I sign up to have a chance for more coffee in the future." He replied....

    End of the short story.

    Not to get anybody in trouble Dinh, who's the straggler that wondered way up north to San Jose??? I would like to shake his hands and sit down to talk to him about koi and " BODY CONFROMATION "....

    I think I know whom Dinh is talking about. If you had a chance to view the pictures Dinh posted, you can spot him in multiple pictures...

    Well, I can tell you that he is so koi kichi... He switched his hotel room to the next show site so that he can view and record the koi from his room. He already reserved a tank for NorCal 2013 show. How about you Tom? How many tanks you want to reserve?

    Best,

    Dick, coffee here in San Jose is very strong, but I think you can handle it.
    We miss you here indeed. How about come down to bench for NorCal show in 2013 Dick? Then we all can go out and get some coffee with Texas Koi boys?

    they just added a few more nisai. check out photos 121-140, these were the koi in this video i posted.


    and some of them are here in Ryan's video


    both kohaku on this page were debated between us at length.

    if you can swing the $ for sansai, the 2 tanchos were solid but the standout for me would be 3024

    check out the kindai showa that was just posted in the "special" section! wow. the 2 XJr aren't shabby either. oh and the goshiki on that same page? to die for.

    Mike,

    from what i gather, the breeders seem to buy/trade koi so that is why they have other breeder's koi in the auction.

    Shigeru likes yamabuki so he has a few swimming in the greenhouse. there was a killer sansai that we harvested along with our koi from Izumiya.

    check out the goshiki in the "special" tab from Hiroi. killer koi.

    i bet you could pick out a favorite (or 2 or 3) if you were there to select from them in person.
