Koi, Goldfish & Other Pond Fish



Ponds are the pinnacle of all garden water features.  They offer a spectacular focal point in any yard.  The relaxing sound of a pond fountain or waterfall adds another dimension to the garden while fish dazzle and entertain children and adults alike.  Always busy, sometimes comical, fish are fun to watch, feed and care for.  We have many options for pond fish here at Atlantic Avenue Orchid & Garden.  We love providing our customers with top quality koi and goldfish!Fish small

Koi

Koi are one of the most popular of pond fish.  Originating from Japan, koi are ornamental varieties of domesticated carp (the word koi means “carp” in Japanese.)  Koi are colorful, glimmering pond fish that are active, inquisitive and friendly, often being trained to eat directly from their owners hands.  Their coloration and patterning is vibrant and diverse, making way for many different named varieties.  Major colors found in koi are white, black, red, yellow & blue.  New varieties are actively developed on an ongoing basis.

We carry standard koi in a variety of sizes.

Butterfly Koi

Hi Fin Banded Shark

shark_1These fish originally imported from China are not actual sharks at all.  Their unique appearance is a grand addition to the pond.  Since they are not really sharks they will not prey on your other pond fish; instead, they are voracious algae eaters! They are peaceful and play well with others.

Blue Channel Catfish

These are the sanitation engineerscatfish of the garden pond!  They are omnivorous and clean out detritus and algae like it’s their job!  A great addition to the fish pond and do just fine with other fish.
