    Brian, thanks for the early info. I am going to start building up my budget for next year AJNPA. The last time I was in Japan(about 4 mths ago) I blow up my budget several times over. No matter how I restraint myself to stick to my budget, there is always those "must get koi or go home disappointed & regret if I don't buy."
    Those fellows I bought last trip are now in the care of my koi dealer till I have enough knowledges,experiences,bigger,better pond etc then I'll bring them home.
    Kindly update if there's any changes. Thanks.
