    Yes, As A Matter Of Fact.

    Here are the Koi I took to the auction on display for preview by potential buyers.

    Update: November15, 2015

    It was time to cull all the remaining tosai from the unplanned 2014 Koi spawning.

    My wife helped me net all the remaining tosai.

    This is a link to a short video of the remaining tosai:
    remaining tosai - November 14, 2015

    The reason there were so many dark magoi looking mutts was the black ones were always the hardest to catch on previous culls because they were the hardest to see.

    I kept 6 Koi, and the remaining 15 I took to the annual Koi auction.

    These are 4 of the ones I will keep for another year or two.





    I picked the Ochiba. My wife picked the dark Chagoi. I kept the lighter Chagoi because I think it is better.

    I was shocked at how much the dark magoi mutts sold for at the auction. I did not keep a record, but I remember one bag with three, all looking the same, sold for $30.00!

    Before the auction, I gave one of my friends a tosai he was interested in.



    I thought it looked like an asagi based Koi, but I was told I was wrong because of the black eyes.

    The new owner says; I think this 20cm Kawarigoi proved that koi do not breed true or Champion do not always breed Champion.
    A Kohaku(female) and Soragoi(male) is parent of this Kawarigoi. This offspring doesn't look anything like Kohaku or Soragoi at all, it look more like it has sumi and soko sumi. It will fun to see how this fish develop to be in next couple years and we may learn something more about koi.
