QUESTION:

Hey Mike, is it ok to add new koi to the pond in the fall?

Have A Question For Mike? Ask the Expert

In areas that get cold weather and winters most fish sellers are anxious to get rid of stock toward the end of the season before it gets cold; they do not want to have to keep stock all winter if they do not have to. For that reason some good deals and great pricing can be found on koi. On the other hand the koi that are available are usually not the best koi, they are what is left from their stock.
