      Here is the link to the next Sakai Fish Farm auction. The photos tell a lot about what the breeder thinks their ideal fish should look like.

      Those will "likely" cost you an arm and a leg. Some of them maybe even cost your firstborn. LOL

      Impossible to say. It's just like any kind of auction. Abuchi is exactly right, you never know if the next guy wants it more and will pay more.

      It was fun to peruse the ones for sale. Of the Kohaku, these are my faves. Check out the beni and skin on #23. I suspect they will command a fair chunk o change.

      Most will go for 5k to 10k each unless the turnout is small.

      I think 5k to 10K would be an arm and a leg for most people. LOL. Im still wondering what $$$ was the "finger" for Abuchi. That was a great find Russ. Hope you can find some like that one for us.

      I said to look at the auction photos for free not to bid on the auction fish.

      To me, looking at auction nisai fish is more interesting. For untrained eyes, the quality is much easier to tell on nisai and older. The consistency of the fish is also valuable in learning what the breeder is looking for when culling fish. For every fish that made into the auction, thousands are discarded.

      Yes, that is what I am saying, sometimes they go for less.
