Koi & Pond Fish Guides

A gorgeous water feature is a wonderful way to bring your landscape to life. A natural pond, water garden, or waterfall can serve as a unique focal point in your yard, as well as create a peaceful atmosphere where you can relax and rejuvenate. But if you want to bring your water feature to life too, then you’ll need fish and aquatic plants to complete it!

When you see a pond or lake in the wild, what is it that truly makes it a stunning view? It’s the colorful flowers, lush greenery, and beautiful fish swimming around that take it from just standing water to an ecosystem teeming with life. If you’re adding a pond, waterfall, or other water feature to your New Jersey landscape, Full Service Aquatics can help you choose the right aquatic life to take it to the next level.

Pond Fish & Aquatic Plant Guides

It would be nice if choosing life for your water features was as easy as deciding which plants and animals you like the most, but unfortunately this is not the case. If you want your pond or water garden to thrive, you need to select the right type of aquatic life for your conditions.

From koi fish, goldfish, and turtles, to cardinals, forget-me-nots, and water lilies (and everything in between), we go over the many options you have to populate your waters in our Koi and Pond Fish Guide and Aquatic Plant Guide. We’ll give you all the information you need to make the best choice for completing your feature, including which species we recommend, which we don’t, and what you can expect from each one.
