GOLDFISH
Everyone loves a goldfish, and we carry all kinds.

If you want something simpler and more affordable than Koi, Goldfish may be just the answer. From Comet Goldfish to Sarasa Fantails and Shubunkins, we offer an entire line of Goldfish that will spruce up any pond.


SARASA COMET GOLDFISH These fish offer a beautiful red and white pattern on a long, slender body with a flat, single tail. The Sarasa will display a deep, cherry red contrast against a crisp, snow white background.
Sarasa Comet Goldfish are perfect for a small, planted pond where Koi are impractical. They will also mix readily with Koi, Butterfly Koi, and other types of Goldfish.
Available from 2-3 inches and up.

RED FANTAIL GOLDFISH Displaying a bright, solid red color on a short, plump body wide, graceful fan tail. Although not as large or fast as Comet Goldfish, Red Fantail Goldfish can bring an unmistakable gracefulness to any garden pond.
Red Fantail Goldfish can be kept in a pond by themselves, or with other Koi, Butterfly Koi, or Goldfish. However, take care when keeping large Koi or Butterfly Koi with small Fantail Goldfish.
Available from 1.5 - 2.5 inches and up.

SARASA FANTAIL GOLDFISH Displaying a bright red and white pattern on a short, rounded body with a wide, flowing fan tail. The reds of Sarasa Fantail Goldfish are generally deeper and more vibrant than the reds of some other goldfish, giving them a stunning appearance.
Sarasa Fantail Goldfish can be kept alone or in combination with Koi, Butterfly Koi and other types of Goldfish. However, take care when mixing large Koi and Butterfly Koi with small Sarasa Fantail Goldfish.
Available from 1.5 - 2 inches and up.

SHUBUNKIN GOLDFISH Having a sleek, streamlined body similar to the body of Comet Goldfish. However, the red patterns of Comet Goldfish are replaced with calico patterns of red, white, grey, black or blue on Shubunkin Goldfish.
Shubunkin Goldfish possess a mix of metallic and transparent scales, pearly in appearance, known as nacreous scales. The overlapping patches of red, white, grey and black (along with dark speckles) normally extend out to the fins, and create some truly interesting patterns.
Shubunkin Goldfish are a great pond fish, reaching 9-16 inches in length at adulthood. They can be mixed with Koi, Butterfly Koi, or other types of Goldfish.
Available from 2-3 inches and up.






MISCELLANEOUS CREATURES

RAINBOW DACE Also known as Red Shiner, are bright, colorful cold water fish. They are hardy and completely compatible with Koi, Butterfly Koi and Goldfish.
Rainbow Dace will grow about 3 inches in length and will readily reproduce in your pond. They thrive off mosquitoes and fish food.











BULLFROG TADPOLES If you love the sound of frogs in the night, stock baby Bullfrog Tadpoles in your pond, then watch as the Tadpoles grow legs, lose their tail, and mature into full grown Bullfrogs. They will keep your pond free of algae growing on pots, rocks, and sides of the liner while in the tadpole stage!
*Also available: Green-frog Tadpoles and Tree-frog Tadpoles.










BLACK JAPANESE TRAPDOOR POND SNAIL Some types of pond snails are egg-laying snails and will lay thousands of eggs and over-populate your pond. Trapdoor pond snails are a living-bearing snail that will not take over your pond. Trapdoor Pond Snails are hardy and can repair their shells if there are cracks or holes in them.









CHINESE HI FIN BANDED ALGAE EATING SHARK No pond is complete without a Hi Fin Banded Shark. This fascinating peaceful fish from China is thought to be one of the most primitive members of the Cyprinidae family. Nothing like true sharks, these fish are voracious algae eaters, although we've seen them eat floating pellets as well.
They are winter hardy and can reach 3 feet in length.
