    Topics...

    How about reporting about the Big Koi Shows in Japan or even Koi Shows in the US or BK. Talk about Koi Clubs in your area (if any). Show that koi is loved all over the world, and not just in Japan.

    I think you should add how the pond maintanence is to be done, and all the uncertaincy on how a koi will develop overtime. All adds up to make large beautiful kois so hard to come by, and should enjoyed the same way picasso is enjoyed.

    As a fish keeper all my life, I bred many fish in aquariums as a teen. discus, angels, killifish, orange chromides etc


    One big deal with koi we take forgranted and would be a great ending for your report is koi get along with other koi. drop another fish in a mixed aquarium and they chase and fight! Koi just seem to get along. What a wonderful insight this time of year as we think about peace on earth and goodwill towards men. If only
    men could learn from the koi, maybe that's why we're drawn to them!

    hi.....

    I saw the title and thought "Oh good, another in depth discussion of beni".

    Koiteen, you could mention that every koi is slightly different (like people) and the likelihood of any one fish becoming the All-Japan Grand Champion show koi is similar to the odds of winning the Miss World beauty pageant. But with koi, its all about the swim suit competition and talent counts for very little.

    1. All entries are not to be feed 1 or 2 weeks before the show. Reason being is that the water in the show vat must stay ask clean as possible. Fish will foul the water if they are feed up until a couple of days before the show. In this time of feeding the koi has time to relax and destress, meaning the colors will come up more and clean up. What we say "Show Ready".

    2. Koi shows are pretty mellow, depending on who is out there. In this hobby someone would be lieing to you if they said they were doin this for fun, but there are hobbyist out there that do it for fun. Me myself, I do it for fun...yeah right!!!!

    3.Koi are judged on 4 basic things. (A) Conformation (B) Skin Quality (C) Pattern (D) Varities. It also depends on the judges individual tastes too.
    The world sleeps as the chance to learn something new passes.
