    Koi Prices in Japan!

    i was just translating some youtube videos and came across this.
    the small tosai koi at the 'aquarium shop' @ 2:52 in, are priced at 500 to 1200 yen....
    thats £3.16 to £7.57

    he also PP dips the fish, and then hoofs 50kg of salt into the pond later in the video but thats something else....

    Would it come as a massive surprise if the fish we payed 500 quid for were actually 50p in japan, probably not......

    The problem with British breeders take cuttlebrook for example there starting to charge around the same price as Japanese fish for the same if not in my eyes worse examples of fish as you say that have been extensively flown half way around the world hope adam doesn't follow suit

    Their TANCHO SHOWA, which was recently introduced, is quite good even on the Japanese market in terms of quality. However, the price was controversial, but as long as there are people who want it, there is no room for us to interfere.
    More than that, the TANCHO SHOWA was one example, so they must have a lot of siblings of similar quality. If they are sold at a reasonable price, they are a good target, aren't they?

    They don't look like great fish to me, they seem ok but not one in that video I'd go out of my way to buy. The price probably reflects the quality.

    It's a good opportunity to learn if there are a lot of second- and third-choice grades available that are similar to that one. It is as we are usually exposed to famous Japanese breeders. However, I have not seen them yet.
