Koi & Goldfish Pricing and Availability

Keystone Hatcheries offers Koi and Goldfish at our store in Richmond, IL for customer pickup.

 

Koi Pickup & Packaging

From mid spring until early September you can pick up Koi at Keystone Hatcheries.. We put the fish in rugged plastic bags with oxygen for the trip home.  They will last for multiple hours as long as you prevent them from warming up. Fish Boxes & Coolers are available for a small fee, or you can bring plastic tubs to hold your fish bags in to prevent punctures.  Also, bring an old blanket to throw over the bags to keep the sun off of them.  DO NOT USE ICE, because rapid temperature changes can and do kill fish.

 

Availability

Koi and Goldfish become available when ponds warm up enough for a safe transfer from Keystone Hatcheries.  We hold our fish at 70 to 80F (depending on conditions) and we recommend that you only stock them in your pond when it is within 5F of our water temperature.  Check below for current availability before you make the trip and feel free to email us to inquire about our current water temperature.

Update. April 27, 2017. We will have 4-6" and 6-8" Koi available this coming weekend, then 8-10" and 10-12" in a week or two.  However, temperatures crashed and we are holding the Koi at 70F.  We recommend that you do not stock them unless your water temperature is 65F or above
