Frequently Asked Questions

Pre-Order Koi

I missed the pre-order cutoff date. Can I still pre-order?

Unfortunately, once our pre-order window is closed, we are unable to take additional requests.

On Friday, January 21st at 5 pm PST all the available koi will be public on our website. Then on Monday, January 24th at 12 pm PST all the koi will have an “Add to Cart” button where you can purchase the koi online.

Please sign up for our newsletter on our website so that you receive our email alerts for when the koi will be available this January and also for next year’s pre-order program.

The newsletter signup is at the bottom of every webpage.

Is my pre-order refundable if I don't like the koi that you found for me?

Yes, it is 100% refundable. If you pre-order a high-end koi that is over the price of $1,500, we will personally contact you while we are buying koi in Japan and confirm that you would like to purchase the koi before we import it from Japan.

What if I pre-ordered 5 koi and I only like 3 of them that you chose?

We can apply your original $500 pre-order to the 3 koi that you would like and then you can pay the balance of the total order.

Koi Buying

When can I buy koi online?

All koi buying in recent years is done online.

On January 21st, 2022 at 5 pm PST, all the available koi will be posted online for viewing only. This allows our customers to browse through our inventory and bookmark the koi they are wanting to purchase.

On January 24th, 2022 at 12 pm PST, all koi will be available for purchase through our website. Each koi will have an “Add to Cart” button.

Can I come into your koi showroom and pick out my koi from your holding tanks?

No. We do not have a public showroom. Instead, we take high-quality videos and photographs of each koi so that you can purchase the koi with confidence from your own home.

Why do I have to wait until April 25th, 2022 to receive my koi?

Since 2018, we have started a 4-month quarantine process for koi. Please watch this video for further explanation.

Koi Pickup/Shipping

When can I pick up my koi from your Rocklin, CA location?

As April 25th, 2022 approaches, we will be contacting you to schedule a pickup day and time.

Koi pickups are done by appointment only. Unscheduled pickups may not be able to be accommodated.

If you are not ready to receive your koi, please see the section below.

I don't live near your facility. How will you ship koi to me?

We can ship koi directly to you through UPS Next Day Air. There is an additional shipping charge per koi shipment that can range from $100 – $225. Depending on the size of your koi, we can ship 3-6 koi per box.

Currently, we can only ship koi to the contiguous 48 United States.

How much does shipping cost?

We ship koi using UPS Next Day Air.

Since we are shipping from California, you can estimate the cost of shipping based on the region that you live.

Shipping to:

West Coast (PST Zone): about $100 – $125 per box

Mountain (MST Zone): about $125 – $175 per box

Central (CST Zone): about $150 – $200 per box

East Coast (EST Zone): about $175 – $225 per box

Depending on the size of your Koi, we can ship 3-6 Koi per box.

My pond is not ready to receive koi. Can you delay shipping?

Your koi is available for pickup or shipment after the quarantine process ends on April 25th, 2022. If you cannot pick up or accept shipment by June 15th, 2022, you koi will go back up for sale for anyone to purchase and you will receive a full refund.
