    Talking A week in heaven!

    I have just returned from a week at Momotaro Koi farm. I have had the most amazing week you could wish for. I cleaned the submerged BHM systems on the 1500 ton pond, one of the 500 ton ponds allowing me indepth knowledge of how they work and the principles behind them. I also had the chance to ask if they were to be built again what changes would be made. Observed the first and second selection Showa culls. I even assisted in the first cull of some Kohaku. I have been asking questions every day and have leanrned more in a week than I did on my past 2 trips to Nigata. There will be some awsome koi coming out of the ponds in October. I am left speechles as to the harshness of selection and all comes back to quality without compromise. Awsome!

    I look forward to returning later this year.

    I quess I can appreciate what your saying. When you see certain things the first time it's quite the revelation.

    will look forward to your thoughts on BH and any revisions thoughts.
