Spring is starting to bud….

With spring upon us its important to check on your fish.  Its a critical time for them when they start coming out of dormancy.  They are more likely to become vulnerable to illness unless proper steps are taken.   When coming out of dormancy their bodies are low on the important nutrients needed to help ward of diseases.  […]

Fish Have Arrived

Our first shipment of fish from Israel has arrived. Their flight was delayed a bit, so there were some casualties. I always feel bad for the ones that don’t make it.  Fortunately, most of them did survive the trip, and are adjusting to their new environments. Pretty close quarters in our holding tanks. Although, we […]

Expecting, premium koi, butterfly koi, fantails, yellow comets, […]

How many fish in your pond?

We often get questions regarding stocking fish in ponds and thought we would give a general calculation of how many fish one can have in their water garden. You would first figure the total surface area of the water garden.  Multiple length by width to find the area surface coverage.  This will give you an idea as to how […]

Feeding Your Pond Fish

It is only natural to put fish in your pond for the enjoyment of watching them but the way we feed them depends on the weather.  During the cold winter months fish live off their stored body fat and will go into a rest period.  What you feed your fish is dependent on your water temperatures.  Give them high protein food […]
