      Please Don't Use this Forum to Sell Koi

      I had not considered the issue of professionals asking for their koi to be critiqued in this forum when I created it. I think it would be a bad idea if we started doing that.

      I apologize to the vendors for not thinking of that before and making that decision up front. My bad.

      what about...

      asking for opinions on fish we are thinking of buying? I did it once, but I won't anymore if that's not what this is for.

      Were they all oval?



      Seriously, I liked that koi, and although everyone here hates it, my bet is that you would get good money for it on eBay with the right ad copy
