    hoshikin is a heterogeneous place with a novel western sensibility, even within the traditional Nigata region.
    Why do you insist on hoshikin?

    Its strange they only seem to advertise through certain avenues, i/e FB / Instagram / Youtube etc. I was aware of the Adam Byer one because I watch Andrew's videos.

    But generally Dealers never put this stuff on their websites so surely a lot of people miss out and subsequently demand falls short?.

    I went to a KWB one once, took me 30 mins of walking around to get to grips with what I needed to do to get my name down, and when I asked to add my name and pay the deposits against 2 koi in separate vats I was told I'd missed the 1pm deadline. (It was 12 minutes past 1). I accepted this as it was my error. However I then noticed names getting added to the lists, happened to be people from the "in crowd" who are always hanging around at KWB. Annoyed me quite a lot.

    Anyway, at the end of the day 1 of the 2 koi I wanted hadn't been allocated to anyone so they lost out.

    I emailed a complaint about how it was managed to Keith, and in all fairness he said if I wanted the Koi I could still buy it but not as part of the grow and show, and he also offered me a 50 credit note as an apology. I chose not to accept it as I was still pretty fuming.

    that would really get my goat too,
    all you want is a fair crack of the whip...

    but koi dealers are the most 'clicky' shops i've ever been to...

    Facebook, Whatsapp............ I get all my fish from Exclusive anyway (apart from a few from Queni) so get all the social media posts announcing what they are doing. Also I follow dealers on Youtube.

    I actually picked up on this event a bit late but still feel I've managed to get a couple of decent fish.

    I'm also in the Adam Byer one, both fish arrived 8th August at 24cm, Mukashi Ogon now 39cm, Kohaku 36cm.

    I don't really use FB (but do have a fake account on there for occasional browsing), but it seems strange these dealers advertise various events on that platform but don't mention on their own websites.

    I thought the whole idea of businesses using social media and various platforms was to drive business to their own websites.

    I learned very early on with an eBay business that the platform doesn't exist for the benefit of my, or any other business, and a simple rule change can ruin your business.

    Anyway those kohaku look like nice choices.

    As for Exclusively Koi, he's a nice bloke, genuine, not far from me, and he supplied my Kase Showa.

    I was personally looking forward to seeing the results of this GROW & SHOW...

    ●The reason for this is that the period of time set is almost the same as the one in Japan.
    ●How will each of the little Tosai, which are supposed to have already been fed with colour enhancers, retain their colour or will they return to their original colour?
    ●Also, there was a similar contest held in Hawaii where Mr. Sekiguchi gave a critique on the results of their growing and raising, how will he react to your results? etc...


    I couldn't find it on YouTube or on their website.
    How did these results turn out?
