    Can you say Genki Koi?

    I can, and I have to say thanks guy's. Today my Marujama Kohaku came in. When I was at the shop a few weeks back she was in QT and could come home with me. But they shipped it to me today and I love her. She couldn't have came at a better time. We had to put one of our cats down this morning and it was a very sad day. Then Genki Koi called saying our koi was on the way. Boy this helped bring a smile to my wifes face. This koi is her's and she saw it in person for the first time today. She was very happy with the way the new koi looked.

    Sorry this picture isn't the best, but I will get more soon.

    Hi Tom,

    Sorry to hear about your cat. That's nice looking fish. Here is my wife's Maruyama Kohaku taken late year. We purchased it as a tosai from the Yoshida Sale in San Antonio last spring. My wife's first koi and she picked it out herself as well. It's turned out to be a female. It must be beginner's luck! I was just curious if someone can share with us the bloodline of Maruyama kohaku?

    Best Wishes,
    Sunny

    Tom - Good to see the Maruyama koi arrived in great shape. That's a very nice piece. I'm sure it will bring a lot of enjoyment to you and your wife for a long time. Sorry to hear about the cat . If I don't talk to you before Christmas; have a wonderful holiday to you and your family.

    Aquitori should be able to shed some light to the Maruyama bloodline.

    Like most modern breeders he is always bringing in new koi to add to his bloodlines.

    both the dad and the son breed koi and are quite competitive. I was very impressed with their place after visiting. All the tosai were so uniform in shape and size.

    I was there after an all japan show, and spotted a koi i was very high on from the show. eveidently the dad had purchased it to work into his bloodline. it turned out to be a male but to look at it it had the build of a female. He laughed about it after I asked about the koi.
