So what do we look for in kois?With my limited knowledge and according to a friend of mine whom is a koi enthusiaist, here are a few guidelines:

1)Balance, which is an important judging criteria for all fishes
2)Body shape - Like torpedo
3)Grace - Fish must swim with minimal effort and body movement.A flick of the tail and the fish glides as if it is doing ice skating
4)Colour, skin texture.Colour to be deep and border well defined, and scales edges should have a layer of shine "FUKURIN". If you look closely at the 'fukurin', it should look like a fishing net.

Here is a topic on 'Fukurin' incidentally started by yours truly:

Here are some of the results.It is impossible to tell the sizes of these fishes from the pics, but all of them have a body girth which is bigger than a man thigh!!! beg2.gif

And, try to see if you can recognise the 'fukurin' as well. biggrin.gif


The 2nd runner up,a kohaku:

1st runner up, a sanke:

And the GRAND CHAMPION, a Kohaku, which is usually the case:

Before I sign off some pics of the 'Bakki Shower'.

Using 'bacteria house' as the filter media (but at a cost of $35 per kg sad.gif ),this revolutionary product saves space,in lieu of a bulky filtration system.

Apparently this filtration method is gaining popularity with Aro keepers as well,and all Aros housed in Max Koi Farm are using this.

Here is an excellant write up on Bacteria House, by jwhtan of Arofanatics.com.

Interesting read. Has anyone tried using this as their filtration material?

Setup is similar to the wet-dry, just that the material they boost is mysterious. Looks like those coral rods selling at LFS. I have a miniature one, 6 ft 4 layers of wet dry smile.gif

CP, I know what to do liao.

Next time participation fee won't be so cheap liao.

Each participant will get a specified seat allocation for a certain number of entries.
So a table of 10 during prize presentation and probably need Brian Wong and Quan YiFeng as host and we can have a sumptous 8 course dinner at the same time.

Then some of the fish bring out for auction and donate to charity.

Oui ... 7th month har.
