Koi Fish For Sale

Optimum Koi's founder & resident Koi expert, Stephen Galgoczy has had a passion for Koi since he was 8 years old. It's from this rich heritage of hands on experience that the company is not only able to breed Koi locally, but also hand pick & successfully import high-quality varieties directly from Japan.

All imported Koi fish are quarantined & KHV tested prior to being sold (Certificates are available on request).

If you are a greenhorn / first timer to Koi keeping, we recommend reading up on the art of Koi keeping to get started.
