Our Koi are imported from top breeders of the Niigata and Hiroshima Prefectures.
Koi or Nishikigoi come in many colors not to mention many varieties can have a separate distinction of being Doitsu (mostly scale less), Ginrin (scales that have a diamond reflection) and many can come with a Hikari sheen (metallic). This is one of the great things about the Nishikigoi hobby.
Not only do we carry quality pond grade koi, you can find show winning nishikigoi in our store as well. We also carry certified Jumbo Tosai Showa from Dianichi and certified Shiro Utsuri from Omosako.
Maybe you’re looking for quality Kawarigoi to have a great presence in your pond. This is where our Akame Kigoi, Chagoi and Ochiba Shigure from breeder Marusei would be for you.
Once a year after the breeders fall harvest has taken place we get a limited supply of high quality harder to find koi. These are mostly Nisai and varieties such as Beni Kumonryu, Matsukawabake, Ki Utsuri , Kin Ki Utsuri, Beni Kikokuryu, Soragoi, Benigoi, Gin Shiro Utsuri, Budo Goromo and Goshiki Showa.
Gosanke being Kohaku, Sanke and Showa are produced by many breeders such as Sakai Fish Farms in Hiroshima, Yamamatsu Koi Farm (Toshiyuki Sakai) in Niigata, Hoshikin and others.
Our fish go through strict quarantine process after they have been acclimated to their new environment. We perform over a five week period two treatments of Proform-C, Praziquantel and or Supaverm. Once this process has been performed we scrape and scope for parasites. We then start a feeding regiment to help determine whether the koi are able to be move to the store tanks. The koi in water of 68 degrees must eat aggressively to show us they are healthy before going into the store.
Shipping koi across the country is another task we take seriously. Before we ship, the koi purchased are separated from others and are not fed for a 48 hour period. On the day of shipping we prepare the bags, water and boxes then pack accordingly. This means we don’t just fill a bag with pure oxygen we have to take into consideration the time of year, is it hot or cold weather, how long of a flight the koi will be on. All these things help us determine how to pack a box so your koi arrive healthy and as little stressed as possible. >> More about Koi from Japan
