Questions and Answers (2)
John Brent Asked:

Should Shubunkins, Sarasa Comets and Red Goldfish be quarantined before adding to the pond? If so, for how long?

We Replied:

Dear John Thank you for your question. This is down to preference, some would say to quarantine them for a week or so, others put them directly into the pool. Our fish come straight from the holding tanks where they may have been for a couple of weeks or months and are checked for any signs of sickness before they leave us. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Dan Everton

Mike Asked:

I have been doing some research about Shubunkins and, apart from your site, all others say that they originate from Japan not China. I wonder if you could clarify before I decide to buy, as I do not want to buy from somewhere which does not know that much about the fish.

We Replied:

Dear Mike Thank you for your question. We have been selling ornamental pond fish for over 50 years and are happy to answers questions like these. Goldfish originate from China and then hybrids like the shubunkins were bred in countries like Japan, from then on shubunkins have been bred in many countries and our stock comes from Israel or England. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Dan Everton
