Colorful and hardy, high quality goldfish and Koi bring life to your pond. Most water features will eventually contain fish. While not necessary, fish add a serene feeling to any design. At Northeast Nursery, we look forward to helping you select the correct number of fish for any size pond. We carry a large selection in many sizes
Be sure not to overstock your pond with fish, keeping in mind that they will grow and possibly reproduce. A good rule of thumb is to stock no more than one fish for about every 15-20 square feet of surface area. This will allow for mature growth, maintain fish health, and not sacrifice water quality.
Wintering Your Stock
A minimum pond depth of 2-3? feet is recommended for over wintering. A small hole should be kept open in the ice in winter with either a pond heater or by allowing your pump outflow to bubble to the surface. This will allow toxic gases to escape and needed oxygen to enter the pond.
