      Southern California hobbyists are lucky to have several Koi dealers, like Andrew's Koi International, to buy Koi from.

      It also helps to have two Koi judges in your group.

      I don't know. I assume that they all came from the same famous Japanese breeder.

      I love me some yamabuki but it’s so hard to get them jumbo. They’re not big eater as chagoi or karashigoi. Mine got to about 25” and slow down on growth
