    Hi everyone,

    As the show just finished, I took the opportunity to make final and last fine tuning to my pond. Meaning, I have to removed all my kois to my small pond. I actually lost count the no of my kois. Finally yesterday I got the number right and many photos were taken. It's 44 kois total(not a good no to some ;-) ). Certainly too many for my 2 ponds to handle if I want to achieve my target of having jumbos. Due to this I believe that I am struggling to bulkup my big kois. I wish I can keep all of them. I think you know the price is very reasonable.

    So here are those kois for sale:

    Cont:
    The Kohaku: As you can see, I really go for skin quality and pattern for kohaku. Sashi and kiwa is something I emphasis in picking up a Kohaku.

    The Shiros:
    I have 6 Shiros and lucky me that they are all female:-)
    6 shiros are too many and I have to let go whether I like it or not. Like I said, I would love to keep all of them. I dont have the latest photo of other shiros.

    www.koianswers.com/discussion/download/4088/Omosako Shiro Utsuri 28cm-16sept10-female-email.JPGwww.koianswers.com/discussion/download/4089/Omosako Shiro Utsuri 56cm-12sept11-female-email.JPG

    1) Omosako Shiro-56cm- female- RM700
    Note: Due too bulky body, I tend to be very careful in feeding the shiros. This one has a good potential to grow big.



    www.koianswers.com/discussion/download/4091/Okawa Shiro Utsuri -7sept11-45cm email.JPG
    2) Okawa Shiro- 45cm- female- RM400
    Note: I was planning to send this shiro to the recent show but she bump into the wall. Nothing serious and she will be back as normal. Very beautiful skin quality esp the shiroji and emerging sumi. BUT, she has a short body. May not grow to grow jumbo at all unless you want to keep beautiful small to medium size shiro.


    www.koianswers.com/discussion/download/4094/Yamanakaohya Shiro Utsuri 46cm-12sept11-female-email.JPG
    3) Yamanakaohya Shiro- 46cm- female- RM600
    Note: Personally picked by the farm's owner. Very good checked board pattern. As she grows, the skin is getting much cleaner.

    Capt, wah selling like hot cakes. Good fish at good price. Noticed all your kohakus have clean sashi and kiwa, must be Seremban water and of course your water management skill. Very well done!

    Coming of age like Bro Adik ah?

    Bro Anuar,
    Thanks for your comment. Actually sashi and kiwa are important creterias when I pick a koi. The skin quality too. As a lazy hobbyist, i am very pleased that the kois are maintaining it's quality in my pond.:-)

    My pond is too crowded la bro for the new objective I am trying to achieve. So got to let go a lot actually even though I like to keep those kois.

    Bro Borman,
    In the Wakagoi Show, I noticed that the Japanese Judges emphasize heavily on Kiwa and Sashi. This I think will be bloodline and the quality traits of that individual koi. No amount of cutting will improve these two qualities.......

    Bro,
    Yup agreed. Actually the judges took longer time to pick kohaku's winners. It's easier to find kohaku without flaw not like other sanke and show a as kohaku is produced by a large scale compare to others.

    While spying on the judges conversation, very often they mentioned about sashi and kiwa. They like to pointed out on secondary hi too which I guess an obvious flaw In kohaku. I noticed this since I first volunteered in the judging team. So I pay a lot of attention to sashi and kiwa when picking up tossai. Shiroji and pattern also play an important part. The only problem is secondary hi which is very difficult to tell as it appears very much later. So I rely on the breeder or fish farm(I.e bloodline) on getting koi with low risk of secondary hi.

    Surely sashi and kiwa can be improved. Water quality will be the main contributor to maintain or improve it.

    Anyway it will never end if we discuss on koi keeping issue. It's better of over long cup of coffee session where the pond is just next to it.:-)

    Bro Captain,

    Firstly thank you for ur Nasi lemak... Taste good...

    Secondly thx for the koi which u have to let go and I very happy with that kois.
    The two koi seem not (malu) in my pond. Keep swimming and approach to surface.
    It different from the small kohaku that I bought early. I think big koi more brave ?

    Lastly I feel luckily that meet the koi sifu like Daninel , Pual and Anuar.
    Really learn a good lesson while getting koi from Captain. Hopefully I can manage to rear the kohaku well and participate coming show .

    Thank you very much again for all the koi sifu and as well as captain.

    Bro Kenny,

    I am glad that you enjoyed the kois. You and me were lucky when the sifus dropped by my house. Many topics were discussed all of us surely have learned something.

    The kois surely not malu(shy) as they were good eater. Hope they will bulk up further under your care. Hopefully the kohaku will turn out to be female as all of us can't really be sure. The fin, cheek and vent might give hope for a female:-)

    The nasi lemak was a quick fix as I got not enough time to prepare something special. Well, feel free to come over. Hope to see your new kois next year in the show.

    Thanks bro.

    Bros Kenny and Captain, many thanks for hosting us earlier today. Although it might be flattering to be ascribed terms like "sifu", I would just like to say that there are far more things I don't know about koi and koi keeping than what I know. The things that I do know, I try to share, so at times it might sound like I know a lot, but the fact is that after 6 years, the hobby continues to humble me in showing me how much I don't know. :/

    You are "sifu", at least to many of us. Of course sifu doesn't know everything but he does know a lot of things:-) Not only that, you are humble sifu who doesn't keep the knowledge to yourself.

    Thanks to you and bro Daniel for giving me your side of opinion. On very short notice, I hope you and Bro Danial are ok with the quick fix nasi lemak :-) I am planning to invite all hobbyist to my humble pond one day. Maybe not much to see but at least we have a reason to get together and exchange our tots. I surely learned a lot during pond visit as the pond and kois(no matter good or bad:-) ) are right infront of you and I hope new hobbyist can walk along the same path.

    Thank you.

    Bro Captain, we're all looking forward to your open invitation and nasi lemak/Sarawak kueh lapis! :-D We haven't organized a decent pond visit outing for a long time. Maybe during the lull after the NHA show...

    We're also waiting for Bro Kit to start a new thread on Brunei pond visits, complete with tourism photos of the place ala Bro Alan/Kuching! :-D Heard that we will have chance to meet Brunei-born Taiwan-based celebrities too! (handshake)

    Captain, thanks for hosting us. We had a good time learning new things and eating too. You have a good tosai selection skills evidenced from the quality of your collection, including those that you are culling as well. And I particularly like your pond very much!
    And we anxiously await your next batch of quality cull.

    Bro Paul, Daniel, Kenny & Yujian, it was great to have you guys as company - I learned a lot of practical lesson in koi appreciation.

    Bro Kenny, you have got yourself a good bargain given the quality of the kois. Pls keep us updated on their progress.

    Regards.

    By the way, one of the hobbyist mentioned that my kois looked skinny in the photos. I just realized that. I used to have the same problem before which is when I rotated the photo to 90 deg, the koi looked long and slim. I am just using compact digital camera and somebody has pointed out about the setting. I forgot which setting I should set. Can any photo sifu help me out? Thank you.

    For info, both Hi Utsuri and Doitsu Karashi have been sold. Sakai Showa also sold.

    No 2 Showa (Dainichi- Sakura bloodline) turned out to be female :-) She bulked up a lot when she was 30 to 40cm but growing long after that.

    Thank you.
