That's what we had to do last time, as we'd already stocked the local school ponds, etc. I'd check first that they will take them too, not all will because of the risk of introducing disease into...

I'd move them out, they'll probably grow quicker and healthier than confined to a tank. Our adults eat normal pellets meant for koi, but the youngsters survive on whatever bugs are in the pond....

I second this, tell them what you'd pay online and ask if they can do you a deal. You'll get an even better one if you shop there regularly. It's also worth asking if they don't have what you want, a...
