    I think it's human nature to focus on the excitement of any hobby. In ours in the hunt for a new koi. We may go to japan for the draining or we may be standing by at our favcorite dealer's when the word is out that a shipment is expected.


    But really, the hobby is day to day improvement of existing conditions for the koi
    we have in our charges. What can we do to make a difference in their health, growth, development. can we tweak a system and get more out of it. Do we have a reliable Q tank system. Can we make a custom carrying case foir the back of our car to move koi in on that's well insulated and padded. It's the little things in detail.

    if I remember correctly the japanese word for that is kaizan, or daily improvement.
