Buy Live Koi & Goldfish - Pricing & Availability

Information to help you buy live Koi & Goldfish:

Mid spring thru September we have Koi and Goldfish in display tanks at our facility in Richmond, IL. You are able to view the fish, and if you find one that you like, we will carefully net it out and package it up for you to take home. We put the fish in large plastic bags with oxygen, so they will be fine for multi-hour car rides. Ideally, you should bring a tub with you to put the bag in for the trip home. Rubbermaid tote tubs work great. The largest bags are about 2 feet long by 18 inches wide when full, and weigh up to 25 pounds. If you don’t have an appropriately sized tub, we can box up the bag for a small fee.

Below is an availability list that we typically update weekly during the season. You can email us at if you want to check on something before making the trip.  We would be happy to update you about the general selection, but we do not give details on specific fish in the mix, because that changes from day to day:

Update. 5-27-2023.  Larger fish and a bigger selection is slowly becoming available.  Please check back soon for updates, or follow us on Facebook.


Decorative Grade Koi

These Koi are just as healthy as their select and premium grade brothers and sisters, but they just didn’t make the cut! You will still find nice looking fish in this grade, but their colors may not be as bright.
