Buy one koi get one up to the same value FREE..
Offer ends Sunday 28th March 4pm

The same rules for this offer as before:-
NO POINTS can be used, NO POINTS will be gained
The price shown in BLACK on the website is the price you pay NOT the members discounted price.

We will keep koi for those unheated,
This offer is for our website, telephone & In-store.

Website ordering:-
If ordering via our website I have taken off the members discount for this week so it shows the price to be taken from your credit card / Paypal.
Please also indicate in the comments box your FREE same or lower priced koi to go with the koi you are purchasing.

The koi in the £125 pond are included so you get two koi for £125
(these koi have to be taken on the day!)

Please note Koi NOT included in this offer are:-

RK 313
RK 220

Grow & Show- Shiro selection times.

For those who have entered this competition selection and collection is this Saturday. If you cannot make it please contact us if you haven't already.
If you miss your time slot or are late, we will try and fit you in where we can. If you are not coming then we ask all Koi are collected by the end of April.
The time slots can be found on our forum here:-


Easter Weekend- NEW KOI & Dry Goods offer

We are releasing our new small koi stocks this weekend. We ask that these koi go to ponds above 12c so PLEASE check before you travel.

We will be releasing all stocks into our small tanks, along with over 150 new special tosai (one year old) from Hoshikin, Dainichi and Exclusive.
These will be priced at £195 and placed in pond 2 for your viewing, we cannot hold these koi sorry, so they have to be taken on the day. Nor will we be taking any pictures and placing them on the website. Loyalty points can be used with these koi but not gained as they are at a very special price and great value for Easter Weekend.

The small koi in the outside tanks will be on sale for the first time on Saturday April 3rd at 10am. We have nearly 1000 special small koi on offer. These koi are priced from £15 to £45 with multi buy options on offer. As per last year, no points can be used or gained with these small koi, this enables the best price for everyone.
Again these koi cannot be reserved or held for any time period and have to be taken on the day.

We will be offering 10% members discounts on most dry goods in store over this weekend. We also plan to have a few more special offers in store.

EASTER SATURDAY- 10am till 5pm
EASTER MONDAY- 10am till 4pm

Japan -Spring visit.

Well Japan is only a few weeks away for us again. We will let you know nearer the time.
This is certainly the most important trip for Richdon Koi of the year. Follow our travels on our Japan pages, and our now open forum.
If you are looking for that special koi this spring then let us know and we can add to our list.
If it is that special tosai you are looking for then don't forget you have the option to have it grown here at Richdon Koi Farm this summer.

50k Growing on service

This very popular service which sold out last year is now up for grabs. If you purchase a special tosai of over £400 this Spring, you have the chance to have it grown on in our 50,000gallon indoor pond. Only Tosai are allowed to go into this growing facility and those bought from Richdon koi.
For this service we charge only £195.
Last year saw 96 special tosai being grown on for customers with a near 100% success rate.
This year we are sure each koi placed into this pond will just get better and bigger.
Come along Easter weekend and see last years grown on tosai (now nisai) in there over this weekend, if we have someone to take you to see this pond and the new 120k pond, please ask. See Easter opening times above!

Don't miss out! This facility has limited space, and they are going FAST
SO to book your place please hurry to avoid being disappointed here:-

PLEASE NOTE- If you book a place for the 50k and you don't find a koi for growing on a FULL refund will be given.

120k Growing pond.

Our 120,000 gallon indoor filtered special Nisai and older growing on pond is coming along nicely. Most places are now taken for this VERY special growing pond this season, with only a few places left. We plan to place our stocks into this pond towards the end of May.

Over wintered koi

Now things are starting to warm up, when your pond is above 11c and stable we ask that you collect your over wintered koi. All of these koi will be ready for collection from Easter weekend onwards.
We Ask that ALL koi are collected by the end of April.
If you wish to have your koi delivered please email

We cannot have any collections during the week Monday to Friday, sorry our fish house is always closed during week days and only open at weekends

NOTE:- When collecting your koi please ask at our reception for a photograph of your koi. Without this you cannot collect your koi. We also ask that you be patient with our staff if they are busy with koi sales.
