Our passion is to provide you with the best koi straight from Japan. Our koi are all hand-selected, premium-quality and ready to be shipped to your address.
We generally receive the koi 3-4 weeks after our buying trips to Japan. All koi are imported directly through our broker and quarantined by Taro Kodama.
Quarantining The Koi
The process has been refined over the years. Quarantine is the best way to ensure that we are delivering the healthiest and happiest fish to you. This process is 30 days long after receiving the koi from Japan. Each koi is separated by breeder and placed into those respective ponds. No other breeders koi will be allowed to contaminate that pond. The koi are fed and cared for while in quarantine.
Testing and Treatment
Koi that are quarantined receive regular testing for KHV virus, sometimes more than once to ensure no false negatives. Treatment for parasites are also done during this period. This helps to maintain our commitment to delivering a quality controlled product. This is also why our cost is a little higher than most.
