Carp, Orfe, Rudd and Tench
Shirley Aquatics have a wide range of carp, orfe, rudd and tench, available to buy online or in-store. We have gold and blue orfe, with their refined colours, perfect for mixing with other fish varieties and remaining active even during the winter.
Our small rudd are a great native fish, perfectly suited to the British weather, which will add variety to your pond. They are a smaller surface fish and therefore demand less oxygen. Golden Rudd are a smaller type of fish, which is not expected to exceed 5-6”(12-15cm).
You can also buy tench at Shirley Aquatics, perfect for still or slow-flowing water. This shy fish lives close to the pond floor and can grow up to 35cm. It’s distinguished for the deep olive-green colour, though gold varieties have started to appear in recent years.
Note: Our fish stocks do vary, especially during the winter months so we recommend calling us on 0121 744 1300 or using our contact form to confirm what we have in store before visiting.
