FREE SHIPPING in the contiguous USA.
These small Koi currently range from 1 - 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 100-125 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!
I have bought many different orders,never been disappointed.
I’m so thrilled by the baby koi I received! I was hesitant about making a purchase of fish online but I’m so happy I did! I’ve never seen such beautiful fish. I went to several local pet stores they had nothing like these beauties. I received 15 different varieties. After further investigation of the Blackwater creek website I found a glossary with descriptions of all the varieties. It’s going to be a lot of fun to try identifying the koi as they grow. My kids and I are looking forward to watching them grow and have already spent countless hours admiring them. If you are hesitant about ordering don’t be... just do it! Thank you Blackwater creek!
My new go-to Koi store! The Peanut Small Pack was sent overnight as advertised and delivered by UPS before the 10:30am delivery time. I was skeptical about so many young fish being alive, but upon opening the box - Zero dead! I followed instructions on floating the bag, water temp, and salt addition into an established 75 gallon quarantine tank. Two days later and all my babies are still alive and eating like piranhas with zero loss. I'd say the fish average 2" long with many beautiful colors starting to come out, including some of the metallic type. I'm not sure on the count, because when I was at the 20 minute floating point, all the fish were gasping at the surface of the bag. I ended up quickly netting them into my tank to avoid death. Bottom line - Blackwater Creek Koi Farm delivered exactly what I ordered, on time, and with an awesome selection of 2" fish. When I get the bug for some new fish, Blackwater Creek is my new supplier.
I have been a long time satisfied customer of Blackwater Creek for many years. I always purchase the large peanut packs. There were a few hiccups with this most recent order, but I always got quick responses to my questions and concerns. My fish arrived today with only 2 casualties. The remaining are beautiful and healthy (as always) with a very nice variety. My only disappointment is that I received fewer fish (139) than I have in the past for a large pack(150-250 advertised).
I rarely write reviews. I wanted to write one for these because sometimes it can be difficult buying fish online wondering how healthy they are and wondering what the heck the koi will look like when you get them. I received a very good mix of baby koi and only 1 dead on arrival. That is excellent for baby koi this size. A few days later and not another death in the QT tank. They appear to be healthy and eating well. It will be fun watching them grow over the next year. If you have hesitations on buying these, buy them. It is worth the money and you will be missing out on so much fun seeing what develops.
Great customer service! Had problems with first shipment and without asking for refund or more fish, Blackwater Creek ship more koi, and they shipped twice as many, and the majority twice as big! All other orders were great. Best service anywhere. I will not buy koi anywhere else! Thanks Cheryl you are awesome!
This place has the best customer service. Had some problems with the first batch of fish they sent so they sent me new ones.The variety of koi is amazing.Thank you
Great Fish Only problem is that you have to keep a eye out for your local carrier. To drop them off cause they sneak up and don't say anything. Besides that wish fish was shipped faster then what it do. I ordered on 4/30 and have to wait till 5/6 just to get them be besides that so far so good.
All I can say is WOW! I expected far less in every aspect when I ordered, I received extra fish, extremely healthy babys, some bigger than expected.and some clear gems. The mix was great, 8 varieties, and to my joy and amazement many butterfly. It is early yet and none have died, but if any did it would be a my bad. I wont ever by koi online anywhere else. Thank you so much
