    CA Koi Breeders?

    I live in caifornia, in the bay area. Does anyone know some good places to buy koi? I'm looking for small ones, like 4-8". I went to Tse Koi, saw lots of koi. Not sure if they are pure or mutts. If anybody knows any reputable breeders around here plz tell me, any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Where do you live in California. Lots of dealers sell small koi in California. There's Barstow koi farm in southern California.

    Other Sites Sale prices are our everyday prices.

    Just what is it you are looking for. I used to have a few pure mutts. But what kind of quality are you looking for? You live in an area were there are more koi dealers than anywhere else in the US. You could have gone down the road just a little bit further and stopped at Champion and Genke Koi. Are you looking for a $15.00 koi or a $1500.00. What one man's pure could be another man's mutt.lol

    Koi hobbyists who live on the West Coast are lucky.

    On the West Coast we have several (many in So Cal) Koi dealers that sell 5" - 8" imported Japanese Koi for prices that compete with domestic Koi breeders.

    And for the OP, these are dealers. There is only one or two BREEDERS in California. If you want to check out other dealers on the SF Bay Area, check out Champion Koi (champkoi.com) and Genki Koi (genkikoi.com). But, all three carry nothing but Japanese imports with a variety of quality levels. Tsekoi's fish are just slightly below grade of the other two dealers.
