New Koi release(posted: 11-05-2011)
Dear Koi Club Member
This weekend we will see the release of the tosai which will spend this summer in the 50,000gallon growing pond.
These koi include Dainichi, Seki-Guchi, Tanaka, Sakuma & Murata.
The Hoshikin kohaku's are planned to be placed into the 50k a week later now due to further parasitic control, we will inform you next week.
EVERYONE is welcome to come along and see these koi being placed into the 50k.
DON'T miss out, it is certainly an experience so see such high quality koi being placed into the growing pond and then to come along in the autumn to see them being harvested.
There are also many special tosai for sale which qualify for this service, so really last chance to view and purchase these koi if you want them to be grown in the 50,000gallon pond. After the end of MAY these NO koi will be placed into the 50,000gallon pond for growing on.
We have decided to do this to prevent short growing seasons which have happened in the past, which then gives the impression a koi hasn't grown much, yet it has only been given a few weeks to grow after spending the summer in the fish house.
There will be no further discounts on these koi unless multi-buy purchases are made, so the usual 10% members discount and points DO apply.
After this weekend the price will increase for each koi to include growing.
NO koi sold this weekend can be taken away, due to our 4 week quarantine rule, whilst only being 3 days under the 4 weeks we quite strict with the release of new koi for obvious reasons.
You will find ALL these koi on our website in the for sale section.
REMEMBER-These are TOSAI and over £550 that qualify for the 50k growing.
You can order a place in the 50k HERE
Those of you who have already purchased koi to go into the 50,000gallon pond, have a look at our Koi pages and click on the 50,000gallon icon, here you will see all the sold koi which are to be placed into the 50,000gallon pond this weekend(Excluding Hoshikins).
SMALL KOI RELEASE
For those of you interested in small koi our outside tanks will be full and on sale from the 21st May onwards.
These koi will range from £15 upwards.
No pictures will be taken of these koi, nor can any be held for a period of time.
Loyalty points are not gained nor can be used for these koi in order to keep the prices down to attract those new to the hobby.

Those tosai which are priced between £125 and £545 from the Japan pages will be released on the 21st May onwards
These will be on our website within the next few days.

KOI COLLECTIONS-OVER WINTER
We are slightly disappointed by the amount of koi still left with us in our sold pond, and ask that these are collected AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. These koi are now costing you £10 per week in overdue collection charges.
Our sold pond is still tied up with so many sold koi awaiting collection.
