We were just as surprised as you probably are that there’s a Southern Colorado Koi Club (socokoi.org). The club held its first benefit auction this past Saturday at Badgers Tree Moving out east of town and we just had to go out and gawk. Fish named Golem, $40,000 collections, bear fences … it didn’t disappoint!

  1. Thanks for the great podcast of our auction. We had a very successful auction and are looking forward to providing the koi-keeping community with educational programs, koi-care help, pond and filter construction hints and anything else that will help our neighbors take good care of the wet pets.

  2. Nice job! We were so glad to have you there! This is a great group of people. And koi!
