    Surfing The Advertisers

    If you have not checked out the various advertisers linked to this site, give it a try. I ended up at the Momotaro site, which I had not visited in a long time. They have little news blurbs and such ... just finished their second spawning (9 million fry produced so far), culling of 4" fry, photos of masses of Kohaku fry. And, Nippon Nishikigoi is a dealer in U.K. whose site I'd not visited before. Wide range of offerings on the site. I get so used to the banner ads, I ignore them. But then I find that they lead to interesting places.

    Yes they do. I decided to click on one I've never been to.

    Very nice site. They have a photo gallery of their ponds. Thought it was a nice touch.

    Surfing the web is used in the UK. By the way liked the video of the Kohaku fry on the Momotaro site.

    Regards

    Dick, you got me laughing so hard. I can imagine far too many things someone doing a literal translation of "surfing the advertisers" would think I was saying. LOL. ... So often when reading old Japanese koi mags there will be sentences that just don't make sense. Same thing, I think.
