      Daily Dose of Koi from Japan

      I am thinking of starting a post that displays daily a fresh image of koi from Japan.

      Total fun and entertainment. In our archives we have thousands of images from Japan as I am sure other dealers have also...I will try to man this post and keep it going daily...but feel free to add a photo and share information...Gene, Matt and any other dealers, hobbyists feel free to put one up..Thanks for sharing everyone.

      First photo is: three-year-old Yamabuki Ogons from Izumiya Koi farm. IMHO best Yamabuki Ogons made period. I will show you what they look like as two-year-olds...in the third year I recall they change into the darker yellow.

      Curious Brian, What would a two year old girl like that run? Ballpark is fine. I'm sure I will never be w/o a yamabuki! Beautiful fish. I like your daily inspiration idea! Boa

      Thanks...Depends how they were bought. If a dealer bought 100 of these then they might be Relatively inexpensive but not cheap... Depends on the quality and the rating of 100. If you wanted the top one..expensive..bottom one reasonable.

      Here is what two-year-olds can look like at Izumiyas and the darker version is what most become as three-year-olds. Third photo is of the man...Mano Senichi of Izumiya Koi Farm. I also believe Mano-san is coming to the USA soon..I saw that somewhere???
