    Here are couple dealers from East Coast: Ray Abel from Nishikigoiofniigata, Carl Forss from Keirinponds and Mark Bodycott from USAKoi. Ray and Carl supply high-end fish. If you are a newbie, try Mark from USAKoi.

    John, your new member 1001, Brian gave away a million bucks to the 1000th member.. LOL

    Closest to you I would think is Keirin Koi. Carl is an advertiser to the site as well. All I can think off the top of my head..

    Thanks for the links. I heard Ray Abell has some expensive kois, plus he grows out most of his fish in mud ponds he has at his lot. Well I compared prices with East Coast dealers and West Coast dealers. The West Coast Dealers seem to be alot cheaper, more bang for your buck I guess.

    Ehhhh, I wouldn't say cheaper, quite a few of my fish are from the East coast. Just depends what you are after as far as quality?

    John,
    Of course, you get what you pay for. Cheaper price will have less quality.
