I had no clue what you were talking about so I had to look it up. Ran into this: http://www.koi.jpn.com/index.php/koi-for-sale/all-koi
Please tell me there is something wrong with those prices.
Zoom25, Your eyes are not playing tricks with you. While I am not that insane or could afford some of those you see, the cheapest one I bought 4, 5 years ago when it was around 18" or so was $2k. Forward that price 5 years, add another 14" in length, you could imagine the current price. So after all, head-fiers are not that crazy in my eyes when it comes to HPs, amps and exotic cables. I am well prepared.
