    This is one that got away last weekend, my agent was bidding for it for me at Bangkok auction and it went for £20 over my limit , so I lost out, but he reckons if I’d carried on bidding it would have gone even higher

    I paid 6000 baht £130 depending on the exchange but I got the cheapest one they were 2more at15000 baht . It’s about 45 to the pound now . Yes they are readily available but mainly from bangkok , I use an agent in Khon Kaen he sends me photos when he’s at the fish farms in Bangkok then flys them up . There are a lot of rich Thais into koi and the fish are really good but too expensive for me . I spoke to a uk koi dealer once and he told me that when he goes to japan all the very best fish had been sold already to Thai farms . How much would that fish be in uk ?

    These are eight i bought last April as 1yr olds about 6ins originating from Ogata Japan,not show quality but decent koi so i think,i paid £100 for four or £200 for the eight which was a good price.

    They have grown well in the summer and i am looking forward to removing the covers next month to get the feed going.
    I like to buy this size and watch them develop though i bet yours grow a lot faster in your temps.

    Nice I like to do the same it’s much more fun growing a fish fro 6 inch and yes my grow so fast . When I first built 11yrs ago I only put Thai koi in at 2 inch and made all my mistakes on them and I’m glad I did they were 20 pence then I sold them all for £20 each re did my pond then started again
