    Nice herd you got there....Pond has a fine balance of color....not too boring. So what is the total fish load in the pond?

    too many kohaku??? have you consider making room for new additons of diferent varieties? Well, you are most wellcome to dispacht any surplus Kohaku you might have to me... I would like to get bored that way, too!!!

    BTW, could you post a pic of your favourite Kohaku plus some comments (breeder, size, sex...)
    Merry Xmas!

    IF I had to pick 3 Kohakus that stand out......hhhhmmmm

    The first one is "RP"(red pec) He is from an unknown breeder, meaning that dealer did know where he was from. He now measures 22" inches.

    The second one is "Vaio". He is from Isa(Hajime). He now measures 19".

    The third one is "Nine". Same as RP, unknown breeder. He now measures 19".

    I would show you the rest of my Kohakus but I would have to take more pics.

    They are all beautiful specimens. I have several koi from Isa. They have all proven to be quite healthy and have held their color very well.
