Appreciation, what to look for
One of the most enjoyable aspects of our hobby is searching for new Koi to add to our collections. Naturally everyone is looking for something different but all the same there are many, many similarities in the Koi that we all like and strive to find. What criteria each of us applies to possible candidates for our new acquisition will depend upon our personal likes and dislikes and also will differ according to what we wish our new Koi to achieve for us. Are we looking for a Koi to grow on and to watch develop or are we looking for a Koi to enter into a show in the near or not so near future. All such requirements will affect our possible selections. However whichever requirements that we wish to meet there are, obviously some criteria that can be applied to all and any possible potential purchases.
