Looking for Inexpensive baby KOI source

aesanders(8b Alachua, FL)November 22, 2007

Does anyone have a mail order source for ordering small inexpensive Koi? I'd like to stock my pond and would like to purchase around 50 or so small 2-4 inch KOI. I don't really like the local Petsdumb(Petsmart) and it is about the only place I know locally that has small Koi for sale. I'm not looking for anything fancy at all. Just an assortment of colores.

Thanks in advance for any help..

you want 50 koi? You must have a very large pond!! Koi need at least 300 gallons of water each. I realize they are small now, but koi grow very quickly and what will you do to reduce your population when they get big?

ccoombs1,

Ponds pretty big. It measures about 80 feet by 30 feet. Deepest part is about 15 feet. I have 6 12" Koi in their now and hardly ever see them. Too much room for the 6.

Thanks for the link pafishguy. I will check them out.

Do you have a place to properly quarantine 50 new fish? You wouldn't want to introduce any parasites or Koi Herpes Virus to the new fish. That pond is certainly large enough to handle the fish load.

I was going to suggest Price's Fish Farm so I went to their site to get a link and found they are going out of business. Everything is 1/2 price. Act now if interested....their prices were pretty darn cheap to start with!!

Here is a link that might be useful: prices fish farm

Thanks for the link ccoombs. I'm in North Florida and can get next day service by UPS ground.. Good prices all around too.
I will be calling them. I don't have a good way to quarantine. I'll just take my chances. Many will get eaten by the great heron's and large turtles that frequent the surrounding area anyway (at least until the Koi get some size to them).

I'm glad I could help! I don't know if you noticed....but they are selling that koi farm. As much as I would love to buy it, I don't have $1.2 mil in my pocket right now. Still a darn good deal for someone! I have heard that they sell good, healthy fish and run a closed farm so at least KHV isn't much of a concern.

kristink...might want to edit your web site a bit. Koi are known as "koi"....not "koi fish". You don't call a shark a shark fish, or a bass a bass fish. They are just plain Koi.

I'm looking for some small koi (2" to 3"). I just recently moved from Mass to Alabama and I had a koi pond in Mass and my whole family loved it. My 9 and 2 year old daughers would sit and talk and stare at the fish and it was amazing to see a 2 year old sit still for such a long time. It was great to see them enjoy the fish and my 9 year old enjoyed watching the fish grow, that is why I'm looking for small fish so the whole family can enjoy watching them grow. If anyone is selling any koi, nothing fancy for a reasonable price and is willing to ship or if anyone knows where I can order some fish for a reasonable price, I would greatly appreciate any info.

Thank you...
