New Shipment, Videos…Corona?
I usually really pre advertise when a new shipment is coming in but to honest, I didn’t want to tempt fate with all that is going on at the moment.
However, the great news is, the shipment arrives tomorrow from Japan. These are the Tosai we picked during the All Japan Koi Show trip last month. We have some excellent Koi arriving.
With all that’s going on I have been a little on edge wondering if the plane would be cancelled like many flights all over the world. It would have affected us pretty bad if we could not get these Koi in, but thankfully, they are on the way.
Obviously, they will now go straight into Quarantine and rested after their travels before they are put on sale, which we will keep you informed about on our Website, Facebook and our YouTube channel. We hope they will be in QT for around 4 weeks. This will depend on the Koi.
We have now moved the Koi over that came in last December and they are now in the retail facility ready for viewing. I will try my best to get as many on the website as I possibly can this coming weekend.
Here is a video when we moved them over. You can see some of the Koi we have moved across.
Moving new Koi at Quality Nishikigoi!!#newkoi #koiforsale #nishikigoi
Its mainly just Koi on this video, so hope it isn't too boring!
These Koi arrived from Japan last December and were in Quarantine until the end of January. Today we have started moving them over to our retail facility ready for sale.
I just thought I would show you some of the Koi we will have for sale.
We will try and add some very soon to the Koi for Sale section on the website but they always sell too fast, within an hour of moving these Koi into the retail side, 9 were sold.
We expect the new baby Koi on Wednesday, so we need the ponds to Quarantine the new Koi.
If you need any further info, let me know.
The Youtube channel has been kind of exploding over the last month or so. We only ever really used it for small video clips to post on our website. We never really did Videos on subjects. I did. A few Harvest videos etc but now we have really started pushing content so please subscribe and check out the ponds etc we have been filming. I will include the latest one here.
Moving House? Moving the Koi! THE POND MUST GO!#koipond #Koi #koicarp
I didn't plan on this video so sorry if its a bit boring just watching me catch Koi.
Its quite a common problem we deal with actually, people moving home, or in this case renting the property out. Its VERY rare you ever sell a house because of the pond and 99% of the time it will need to be filled in.
This is what is going on with this pond. It will be going on the rental market and nobody who rents a house wants the hassle of a pond, plus you cannot expect anyone to look after the pond.
We bagged the Koi up today. We didn't need to use any oxygen as the Koi were only going a few miles. They settled in perfect.
The bags we use make it so the fish can never damage themselves. It's never ideal to move the Koi in any situation but they were fine.
The Nexus 320 and other equipment will all be used on the new build. Which we will bring to you as its done.
As most of us, I am as confused as everyone. I do not know from day to day what changes will be made. We have livestock here that always need to be checked daily, we need to make sure the pumps are all working, and the Koi are in good condition. So, no matter what we will have to be here to make sure all the fish are fine.
Call outs and maybe even deliveries will probably have to come to a halt pretty soon, but we will continue to follow Government guidelines and go from there. Paul and I are doing okay, no symptoms or anything like that for now. So as long as that is the case, we will be here. If anyone is concerned about coming up to the shop, we can always take a payment over the phone and leave products in a collection container outside of the shop. I hope everyone we know are okay and managing their lives, which we understand won’t be easy!
If you are self-isolating and are local to the shop and need anything, let us know and we can see if we can drop products off, food etc. There is pretty much nothing we don’t have in stock.
