    A Beautiful Gift from Brother David

    Koi Brothers and Sisters,

    Just want to share with you a beautiful gift from Brother David, a Momotaro Sanke, Sansai 68cm. Getting excited when she arrived. So i skipped lunch, went to the airport and picked her up around noon today.

    Here's the picture taken by Devin (Koi Acres) before shipping. Thanks Devin for shipping her here.




    Here's a short video of her just out of the bag (and went back to work.)




    Brother David,

    She looks even bigger than Kisaki Sanke (66cm). Beautifully developed compared to her nisai. Thank you so much for letting me share a part of your precious collection, brother. Thanking would never be enough to express my immerse gratitude to you. Thus I'll take very good care of them, treasure them and feed them well. Hopefully one day, they'll reach jumbo size, a common dream from all of us.

    A super beautiful Gift, Brother David!

    Cheers,
    Victor

    Good Day Brother Victor

    Sure glad to know this Sanke arrived safely .. I'm glad you like her too .
    I believe under your good care and new pond , she would simply bulk-up and looks better than what she looks like in a matter of months . She had been without food for more than a month while preparing her to be shipped to Koi Acres , and I would like to commend Brother Devin for his professional handling in this shipment to your place .... sure did a good job ... She still looks good .
    Brother Vic , I always believe you went through great extend to be saving up some monies for the freighting and handling charges .Freighting and handling had never been cheap from Japan to the States , and I do feel bad for imposing such expenses ....

    BTW , did brother Larry's Sanke arrived safely too ??

    I Wished All Well .

    Happy to see the joy you generate with your gifts. the sanke is beautiful......

    last night i sent one of my trickle towers home with a new koi fanatic, who i visited the day before to review his filtration and found it lacking in the bio department. All this to say, while it is nice to see others so appreciative of the gift, to be honest it is the giver that receives the most joy!

    isn't that right, david?

    In most cases but in this case I would prefer to be the receiver.

    Brother David,

    I like her very much. Both of the Sanke arrived in the States safely. Brother Larry's Sanke is still @Devin's place.

    She has not been fed for over 2 months now. Will feed her some FD which will come in town in 1-2 wks. For now, let her enjoy the oyster cookies.

    For shipping costs, those are minor, brother David. I'm able to take care of these small expenses. Please don't feel bad, brother!

    I'll make a video with all of your Koi in it later when water gets clearer.

    Cheers,
    Vic.

    Thank you, brother Bobby! Now while in town, Koi brothers and sisters can stop by and see a little collection of brother David's Koi on this side of the globe even though my pond is not big and not so nice. I feel so fortunate to receive these high end toys. Brother David's sharing is really beyond generosity.

    Cheers,
    Vic.
