    What would you ask?

    Around March last year, ahead of my first trip to Momotaro, I asked posters on www.koichat.com what question they would ask him.

    Thanks largely to Koi Bito mag and DVD many people know significantly more about Momotaro Koi Farm than 18 months ago.

    If you could ask Mr Maeda 3 questions what would they be?

    Just one question from me.

    Toshio Sakai set out to improve the sumi on Sanke and the growth potential of koi. In the process he has produced a fish that is instantly recognisable as his work, regardless of the breeder, the Matsonosuke hallmark is unmissable.

    Does Maeda San have similar goals and if so, what are the hallmarks we should look for?

    Yes Mark, thanks. I would ask him if his bakki shower design is modeled after aerobic trickle towers used in waste treatment plants or a modified activated sludge design? ( both organic processors)
    2) Does he believe that filamentous bacteria occupies the system?

    3) what are his thoughts on the value of water rich in keloidal particles?

    Something that I would be interested in knowing.

    Since he uses a nearby river to continually change water in his ponds through the Bakki Showers, how does he plan to change that if and when KHV infected fish are found in the river?

    What breeder(s) would you see in Nigata? Where are you getting your parent stock, if not from your own ponds?

    i think it would be hard to ask 3 questions as you would be wanting to ask more and more to get all the knowledge you could while he was answering questions, just my opinion

    I guess that doesn't translate well, does it? :?

    The more interesting question, to my mind, is the second anyhow. But another way of putting the first question is: What breeder or breeders would you visit if in Nigata?

    OR a different twist on the same sort of question: If you were buying koi for a friend's pond, which breeders or dealers would you choose from?
