Koi Pre-Order Program


Koi Pre-Orders are now closed, please check the dates below to see when koi will be available for purchase.

Annual Koi Release Sale

In previous years we hosted an annual event at our location in Rocklin, CA, with a “first come, first serve” koi show. While this koi show was always the highlight of the year for our local customers, customers outside of the driving distance of our location would not get the same opportunity. This year we are releasing all of the koi December 9th for anyone to purchase online. Included in the release, each koi will have a photo and a high definition video. The koi room will be closed to the general public until March 2, 2020.

Shipping Koi

If you are purchasing koi and are not available to pick up after March 2nd, 2020, we are able to ship anywhere in the United States via Southwest Air Cargo. In addition to the cost of the koi there is a shipping charge. (free shipping on orders more than $750 do not apply to live koi) Please click the button below to learn more about the cost and process.
