Koi and Goldfish
Sold Out for 2019--
Buying a new pet fish for your pond is so much fun! The Japanese call koi the "jewels of the pond," and they are so right.
When you pick out a new fish to bring home, remember that you're making an important investment for your pond. You want your new fish to be healthy and to live a long time.
Over our fifteen years of selling pond fish at Cool Ponds, we've developed a procedure of quarantining and inspecting fish well before they're available to you to purchase. You can rest easy knowing the fish you buy from Cool Ponds are safe and healthy!

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.
