Fish for Ponds


Mud Ponds
Blue Ridge Mud Ponds




While koi hobbyists strive to have clear water in their ponds, Blue Ridge tries just as hard to promote green water in theirs.

In order to raise healthy, fast growing fish, they need to provide the fish with an environment that is as stress free as possible. The green water helps them achieve that goal. When the baby fry are stocked into the grow-out ponds, their primary source of food is tiny zooplankton, which feeds on the phytoplankton (green water).

As the fish grow they increasingly depend on supplemental feeding. As any fish keeper should know, increased feeding results in increased waste production from the fish. Here again, the green water saves the day. The phytoplankton, along with increasing populations of bacteria, utilize the fish waste as food, controling the damaging amonia and nitrite build-up. Each pond is it's own little eco-system. Keeping those systems in balance is one of the secrets to producing a healthy, quality fish that can withstand the severe stress of harvest, sorting and shipping that is necessary to get the fish to the end user, YOU.

Shark Hi Fin Banded

7" Price $37.99


No pond is complete without a Hi Fin Banded Shark. Blue Ridge has recently started importing these fascinating, peaceful fish from China.

These fish come from the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. They like cold water and stretches of warm weather, but are happies kept cool. They have a peacefeul temperament, sometimes exhibt a playful swimming manner, and are known to change color depending on their mood. The sharks are omnivorous bottom dwellers that can be fed dried, live or frozen food (including brine shrimp, vegetables and blood worms).

They’re thought to be one of the most primitive members of the Cyprinidae family. Nothing like true sharks, these fish are voracious algae eaters, although we’ve seen them eat floating pellets as well.

They’re winter hardy and can reach 3 feet in length.
