First of all my apologies that yesterday there was no report of the second day. I was honestly said to tired to select the photo's and to write a short story.
  The second day we got up again very early, and after breakfast we got into our car for a visit to Yoshinori. Yoshinori had last year an outbreak of the Herpes virus. The reason for this was the temporary placement of a Koi from a friend in one of his ponds. Luckily his parent fishes where not in this pond of unfortunate and he got out of this without all to many problems. I therefore was happy for him but also I was especially pleased because this Koi man knows what Koi breeding is all about and how labour intensive he is engaged with all this work.

Both of us with a smile on our faces we made an appointment and this smile stayed until I could shake hands with him. Friendly as always he walked towards us and before we knew it we had coffee sitting at a small table in his Koi house where we were warmly welcomed and exchanged many greetings
I told him that his Koi of the past year are very well received in the Netherland and that they developed very well with respect to body shape and growth. After that we talked for an hour or so about “khv” in general and the many steps to be taken to find appropriate methods to deal with this. Yoshinori knows from his own bad experiences how careful one should be, especially order and cleanliness play a prominent role for him. This was clearly visible by the great care given to this. I would say that Yoshinori Tanaka takes very well care about everything.

During this day I could only visit two breeders because of the long time taken for the selection at Yoshinori. This was because of many of his Tategoi where still together with the other Koi in the basins. The largest part of the day was gone before we concluded this work.

So I would say see the pictures and judge yourself. After a warm farewell I know one thing for sure; I will be back next year for a new selection of Tategoi. With this thought we took the road to Marudoh.

Marudoh is specialized in Go Sanke, thus here you can experience and see top quality Kohaku, Sanke and Showa. Not cheap but after all you get the highest quality. Here I selected some very beautiful Kohaku of approx 65 cm. Especially one of them is a Koi of world class. Also a large Showa with a superb white skin drew my special attention. I just can say enjoy the pictures and determine for yourself whether or not this quality. more...
