These small Koi currently range from 2 - 2 1/2" in size and are a result of multiple spawns from this year. These fish are mixed varieties and are a great way to have some fun watching them grow this season. Varieties vary by season however you will be sure to find a diamond in the rough with the mix. Don't worry if you cannot recognize the varieties in these small fish. The colors will begin more rapid development by the time they are 2.5" long. When the fish are small, they all look very similar.
Grow some out to give away or make a profit selling at a larger size. This includes Standard Fin & Butterfly Fin (no guarantee on ratio, could have a lot or no butterfly in the mix). There are 35-45 fish per box. Quantity will vary based on the size of the fish. If the fish are running on the smaller side in a given week, you'll receive more fish in the box. If the fish are running on the larger side, you'll receive fewer fish in the box.
Due to the fragile nature of these small Koi losses up to 20% a few days after arrival have been experienced. Adding 5 lbs non-iodized salt to each 100 gallons of water will reduce post shipping losses. Water above 70 degrees will have best results.
But What Do They Eat?
Wondering what to feed your Peanut Koi? At just 1- 2 1/2", they are too small to eat pellet food, so we formulated a finely-ground version of our Gold-N Professional Koi Diet in a size small enough for the Peanuts to eat. Add the Peanut Food to your order by checking the box above!
- 1.5 - 2.5 inches
I received my hobby pack of koi today and all the koi made it safe and sound. All of them made it safely in my inside koi pond and are very energetic. And happy when kids were feeding them. They are all gorgious. I'm very happy. I will buy again soon. Thank you
September of 2021 I had just gotten my pond back up and running. It is about 65000 gallons. I ordered a hobby pack of peanuts. I do not feed my koi. Because I am in zone 4 and the pond freezes over necessitating a heater to keep a hole open for gas release, I really did not expect many to survive the winter. Last week I counted 24 in one group. Wow, I am impressed with the survival rate under harsh conditions. I am excited to see the many different varieties as they develop this summer. Many are already 4-5 inches long.
Received my butterfly and hobby packs today. (70-90 fish) Absolutely amazed at how frisky and vibrant my peanuts appeared and acted. Not one sluggish KOI - 100% shipping survival. Blackwater Creek has WON my repeat business. Looking to add select metallic fish to complete my 18k gallon pond.
Blackwater Creek personnel were very helpful in recommending the Peanuts Hobby Pack for my FFA H.S. aquaponics project. The fish arrived overnight as promised the next day via UPS. All very healthy, with no losses and simply amazing assortment! Thank you so much for your outstanding service and product!
I bought the hobby pack to restock my pond this past Spring and I couldn't be more pleased with the mix I received. I have this wonderful extremely colorful variety of both standard and butterfly koi. A great mix of colors and as promised, I have some truly sensational fish. It has been so fun watching them grow. The fish are healthy and the initial loss was less that the 20% I was expecting. I unexpectedly received a couple of absolutely stunning Sapphire Koi, they are exceptional! I have always purchased my fish individually, but this has been such a fun experience I am now sold on peanuts.
