Best in the City for Koi - Water gardening.
I found River City Koi - Water Gardening last year when I was trying to stock my backyard pond and wanted to look beyond the petstore/hardware store for my fish. Much to my delight, I found much more than just "fish" at the establishment. The butterfuly Koi I purchased were not only beautiful, but hardy as they survived this last winter (2009/2010).
The staff at River City Koi were very helpful each and every time I needed assistance with any any issue from clearing up my pond, how to do things organically versus simply adding chemicals to the pond, how to best care for my fish and even giving advice on plants that would be most beneficial to my pond. What was great, is they really cared about the fish, their health and well being. They also seemed to really care about my experience as a fish owner and helping me to develop the knowledge base I need to create the pond enviorment/sanctuary I am working towards in my backyard.
Having an ornamental back yard pond is an investment of time and money. To have the assistance of River City Koi ensures that your money and time will not be wasted.
Best place for Koi ponds and watergardens in the city.
River city koi is a wonderful place for anyone who is tired of the hardware store (limited) water garden supplies and information. The person that helped me was Breeze and she truly made my shopping experience a breeze. I was learning through trial and error (mainly error) because I didn?t have an expert to go to for koi questions. I stumbled across this store and have had nothing but wonderful luck since. Most of the big stores have a very small section for ponds that might have some food and if you are lucky a fountain or two. River city koi has got everything from a wide selection of pond fish to filtration and supplies. They are people who truly care about your fish and are happy to know how you and your pond are doing.
What struck me as wonderful was how the first time I came in the store, I had a problem where I lost a 14 inch butterly koi and their response was one of sincere grief over the loss of my fish. This goes back to my earlier observation that they really care about more than just a sale.
The store is tucked away off armor road and I-35 and is a little hard to find the first time but once you do, you will never go anywhere else for your supplies, plants or fish. Also, in the event that you just want to stop by and see some beautiful fish, the have tons of them. They have everything from starter fish to some of the most beautiful fish I have seen.
In a nutshell, this is the BEST place to find supplies and information about water gardening and koi raising.
In case there is any question, they have a customer for life. I was almost ready to give up on my water garden until I found them. Now my water garden is the centerpiece of my yard and I am seriously thinking about putting in an additional pond in the spring.
