Vertigo – yes I can call her by first name now – swims all knowing, however also in full innocence around in the blue champions vat. The looks of this Kohaku are still sublimely. It is pleasent to meet her again after a year and I am happy to see that she’s doing so great, even while residing in a hobbyists pond. The charm is mainly based on the formidable body that looks from head to tail strong, but also streamlined and subtle. Especially the proportion between the size and form are completely correct. Take a look at the video…
When it comes to Koi, a picture is – even though its brilliant – actually not sufficient. It is about the movements of the tail through the water which gives it such a peaceful impression. In this compilation video we once more have the Major Awards of the Interkoi Show of 2013 for you. Press play and start dreaming…
‘…And of course the editing, the control of the sound and suchlike are certainly no easy tasks’
When a new Koi dealer enriches the Koi scene of course that is good news. And more so if the dealer has great ambitions and also shows these. 2012 was the year that Koifarm ND saw the light of life and together with Nico Dewulf KoiQuestion looks back on his first season as Koi dealer. And surely there’s enough to look back on.

The Dutch Koi dealers Makoi and Koicentrum van Keulen won Grand Champion on two different Koi Shows in Japan on the same day. They take home the gold from the Nagaoka Koi Show and the Ojiya Koi Show.

It seems like the weather is going to be great and although usually somewhat cliché, this year may be prominently stated. The other Koi shows this year were namely not without the wet rainwater. It’s amazing how much I’m looking forward to it, like I become 5 years old again. This is not very surprising since where KoiQuestion would normally enter the show with maximally two or three people, this weekend we will be there with an entire team with our own stand! Read More
When two men rang the bell at Remy’s house, he opened the door as always. They introduced themselves as policemen. According to their information, a cannabis farm was located at this adress and this is illegal. Remy’s innocent answer was: ‘I have no cannabis plantation, I am a Koi hobbyist’. Read More
Marion, columnist at KoiQuestion and also my (Tiebo Jacobs) better half, is pregnant with our baby! This hapiness is very special, because we did not expect this miracle of life. We are very proud and happy and of course some questions came up in our mind: will Marion and our child be allright, what will our baby look like and what kind of monkeyshine we should be aware of? One question is already answered of course, our child will be a great Koi fan ! Read More
For a moment my (Tiebo Jacobs) heart beated like crazy when I saw a picture of Jennifer Lopez smiling with a flyer of the 20th edition of the Holland Koi Show. I knew that for example rapper Eminem, boxer Oscar de la Hoya and Playboy owner Hugh Hefner have ponds with Koi…but since when does Jennifer Lopez likes Koi…..?
