    81 boxes!!!

    By popular demand, here are some picture of the Genki shipment. I actually didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to because we were busy unpacking and getting all the fish into QT. Even when that was completed, I only got a chance to take pictures of one of the QT tanks. There were three QT tanks in all but this one should give you an idea of the quality of the shipment.

    Kohaku

    One of Kevin's customers met him to pick up a couple of his fish from the shipment. Here's is his kohaku. I got a couple of nice shots while it was still out in good light.

    LARGE Gin Rin Showa

    I've seen some nice small gin rin koi but never a large one. This showa was large with excellent gin rin. I'm not sure the size. Joe, Antonio, do you guys know?

    Shiro utsuris

    Kevin also brought in several nice shiro utsuris. I was amazed at how white these shiros were even though they were just unpacked and placed in QT within the last 20 minutes or so.

    Sorry about the darkness of the fish in QT. I couldn't get my flash to work right.

    Asagi for Dick

    Here's a couple of shots of the Otsuka asagi. I really like the kanoko like effect of the orange coming up for the belly.

    Marusei Kohaku

    One of my favoite fish in the QT was this Marusei koihaku. It was not the biggest or brighest fish in the tank but every time it swam by, I had to take a picture. Not sure what it was about this fish but I really liked it.

    81 boxes is a lot of back breaking work....but from the pictures an exciting time. Thank-you for posting...especiially the Asagi ( that's a real dandy ) looks like everything came thru in really good shape!
