Koi and Goldfish
Koi and golfish are now available. We have new shopping guidelines we need everyone to follow to keep us all safe (see below).
Our New Shopping Guidelines
To keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we've developed some new shopping guidelines which incorporate social distancing. Watch our 2min video for our procedures or read below:
First, please limit your party when selecting fish. We know it's very exciting to pick out fish with your family, but it can also be quite difficult to manage a large group safely. Consider a video call to show your loved ones our selection.
As with all shopping at Cool Ponds, we ask that everyone in your party please wear a mask.
Painted on the ground you'll notice 6' squares around the tanks. Please only one party within each square a time. You may be forming a queue to purchase fish -- especially on Saturdays!
A Cool Ponds staff member will wait outside the square while you make your selections. Once you've spotted fish you'd like to take home, describe it to us. Then we'll switch places with you within the square and net your fish out.
At this time, we cannot offer fish for online / phone ordering for curbside pickup. Fish will be available for in-person shopping only.
We know that taking a new pet home is very exciting. And we're thrilled to be a part of that process with you! Thank you in advance for being patient and for being conscientious of our health and others'.
Sizes, Prices, and Availability
You'll find a mix of goldfish sold at Cool Ponds -- sarassa, comet (usually orange but can also be brown like the one pictured), and shubunkin (the multi-colored fish pictured).
Goldfish live an average of 6- 8 years and can grow to a maximum of around 10".
4-5" Mixed Goldfish - $7.99 each
8-10" Mixed Goldfish - $13.99 each (currently out of stock)
Koi sold at Cool Ponds come in a wide range of colors, including white, yellow, and blue.
Koi are smarter than goldfish, and so are easier to train to eat from your hands. They also have a much longer life expectancy and can grow as long as 36"!
You can purchase a wide range of colors of koi from Cool Ponds. We sort koi in two color grades: Decorative and Select. Select koi have better colors -- bright whites, yellows, and blues, e.g.
4-6" Standard Fin Koi - $20.99
4-6" Butterfly Fin Koi - $26.99 (currently out of stock)
4-6" Standard Fin Koi - $32.99
4-6" Butterfly Fin Koi - $42.99 (currently out of stock)
8" Standard Koi -- $71.99
8" Butterfly Koi -- $92.99

Last Shipment Out for Sale on June 25
What to expect when buying fish.
At Cool Ponds, we sell fish exclusively from outdoor tanks (pictured) during the spring and summer months. We receive new shipments of fish every 1 - 2 weeks.
You won't be getting a "grab bag" assortment. When you pick out the fish you want, that's the one we net up for you!
Your new fish will be bagged in a plastic bag for the transport home, but please do not plan on traveling for more than 45 minutes. Battery-powered aerators can be purchased separately for travel times from 45 min to 90 min.
