    Dainichi Auction, Oct 7th 2013

    Look at the eye candy at Dainichi. A dream trip would be to attend the Momotaro auction and then go up to Dainichi (dealer needed of course).

    remembered our trip in 2011 where we got to see the koi being harvested, selected and photographed for the auction. pretty cool stuff.

    Yippee! Yonsai- now we're talking! I've got my eyes sharpened and my ruler and triangles at my side. May need a loupe? Eye candy for sure!

    When Dainichi started doing an auction event with on-line posting last year, the koi were selected with caution. Looks as if they got comfortable with it. The selections I have been able to see are a major improvement. Unfortunately, it is taking a very long time to get the download. I'm going to have to wait until I'm at a computer without so much security in place to see if that improves things.

    Mike, #1, is very nice. But it has a lot of yellow- head, and shoulder. It has to be fed lots of spirulina, right? I reckon heavy spirulina is needed to keep its beni, which is relatively scarce, strong? Note the kiwa near the centerline by the shoulder, where it is thin and more orange in color. What are your thoughts on it?
