    I found this video to be really interesting. It's really amazing how they visit different Koi breeders in Japan and select fish.

    There is a koi dealer on Koiphen that posts excellent pictures of his trips to Japan. They're very informative and interesting. I believe he's leaving on another trip Oct. 18th, so I'll watch for his pictures and point them out to you.

    I found it interesting that only one of the places they bought Koi at spoke English. Also I liked the visit to the one breeder that invited 5 or 6 dealers to pick from the same tank and everyone had to scoop out their picks at the same time. It seemed pretty exciting. I bet they all got really good deals!

    I'm usually on "drive by" mode when I visit this Forum, I play videos but can't always play the whole thing, or give 100% of my attention
    I'll have to watch it again
