History and Physical Characteristics:
Butterfly Koi (Cyprinus carpio) are a member of the carp family. Also known as Longfin Koi and Dragon Carp, Butterfly Koi are easily recognized by their long flowing fins, which make them the stars of many ponds. Butterfly Koi are the result of a cross between Standard Koi, which provided the color, and a grey indonesian grass carp that had long, flowing fins. Butterfly Koi fry are actually grey in color at first, with the stunning colors beginning to appear as they mature. Butterfly Koi come in a variety of colors, from solid yellow to tri-color patterns.
Traditionally, Butterfly Koi fish range in size from 2.5 inches to 36 inches, but given the proper settings can grow even larger. They will look great in your pond, and their long flowing fins provide an illusion of effortless flight when viewed form above. Fin length is an indicator of age, with older fish having longer fins.
Our Butterfly Koi are of high quality and are health certified, so you can rest easy knowing your fish are coming from a clean source.

Our fish are many things, but they are certainly not coy. As a common misspelling of the word koi, coy fish sounds the same, but imparts an entirely different meaning on the fish. A coy fish would be one who is shy or modest, and our fish are anything but. They go into your pond with their colors blazing, their fins flowing, and enough spunk to liven up your otherwise dreary pond. With those characteristics, they are certainly not coy fish!
We also have goldfish for sale. Pond Comets, Sarasa Comets, and Shubunkins all make nice additions to your pond, and will add life, color, variety, and movement to your water garden. Our goldfish for sale are colorful, active, and will make your pond a well rounded habitat.
Fish play a big role in your pond's ecosystem. Koi are members of the carp family and by design forage on algae and pond debris. They convert these into amnonia, which provides food for beneficial pond bacteria and aquatic plants. Koi are also very beautiful and provide a great conversation with visitors and can also become great pets. Our Koi are of high quality and are health certified, so you can rest easy knowing your goldfish and koi are coming from a clean source. Have more questions? We have answers!

I live in an area where Koi fish are not available and apprehensive about ordering on line. I was very impressed with your service. All of my fish arrived safe and very healthy. Their colors are beautiful. I would recommend you to anyone.
Thank you for my beautiful fish.

The fish were delivered quickly and in good condition. I wish there were more different colors. Also, I ordered 20 but only received 14. I am sure the company is trustworthy.

One of the fish arrived dead, shortly there after another one was found floating. The stress started, now what kind of problem has showen up at my pond. I should have been more ready for this type of deal,but was not. I had to go out and get medication for the whole pond (4000 gal).
On a positive notes, the bag had 23 fish I only order 20 so far ended up with the right amount. (thou 23 wouldl have been nice, plus no stress on me) The rest of the fish look good, nice coloring, good fin formation, active swimmer. The package show on time like the said that it would.

My 20 butterfly koi arrived safe and healthy. Beautiful assortment. Really enjoyed talking and sharing tips with Jason. Sorry about the mistake on your end but really like the addition of the extra large koi I recieved. Great experience working these guys. I would recommend saving yourself the head ache and deal only thru these folks.

My order was for 20 butterfly koi. I didn't think deliveries would be made to NW PA in December, but they where! There are 21 in my aquarium now waiting for spring to go to the pond. The diversity in color and hardiness was outstanding! I recommend them to all!!!

Overall satisfaction for my 5" butterfly koi order is four stars, simply based on the fact that 16 of the 22 fish that were received were all basically the same color. Light yellow and white were the color of fish that dominated my order.
