      No one is willing to try a grow out from our esteemed U.S. growers? Maybe some Chagoi from birdmanofCo, or Lotusland koi farm, or Sundan koi.

      The new post button will show new posts from all forums, so it should still have visibility. If not, can a MOD move it to the main forums please?

      I am willing, but my main preference is Japan. If you want to possibly join in, hit USA and you may end up being the first of many.

      I tried and tried to purchase... had one picked out and waiting to send money, but never heard from him again.

      I think he's a very busy guy.

      How about some amazing koi from Purdin Koi Farm, Bill and Maureen said they would be happy to choose some really nice koi for the grow-out. We were out there a few months ago, the parent stock is un-real and the off spring is top notch. I think everyone would be super happy with the outcome in the next year with the growth that can be expected out of these. Showas, Kohaku and Sanke would be available along with a few nice Tancho's. I have attached a few pictures of the quality that is available.

      Frank, vote is heavy on the Japan side. Your going to have to sell the US option big time. You can hit the other post as well to get the US side picked as well.

      Any varieties from Japan with an established bloodline. Maybe even from a lesser known breeder for better quality tosais.

      The pictures of the Purdin koi were nice ones, just thinking a person might get more bang for their buck there.
