        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.

                          Good morning Paul, I'm sure this question sounds as if it is from out of left field ( an American expression) but I'm curious-- what is the meaning of the name of your company- koikit? JR

                            Morning JR

                            No problem with question mate, when i first started the company we were only selling Koi related dry goods mail order and had no intention at the time of opening a shop or selling Koi. So we just come up with the name KoiKit over here kit basically means in a slang sort of word equipment. I hope that makes sense LOL.

                            Cheers

                            Paul
