These are a very popular surface feeding fish for garden ponds. They look spectacular in a shoal. As an ornamental fish orfe are produced in 3 distinct colours - golden, blue and silver. We sell them in large numbers from 2- 8 inches. Often in late April larger sizes of surplus broodstock are available in limited numbers. Give us a call if you wish to have some reserved.
This very popular pond fish is a colour variation of the common Ide (Leuciscus idus), a fish naturally found in lakes and rivers in mainland Europe. It loves to swim in shoals and can look really spectacular darting around the surface of a garden pond
This unusual colour variant of the ide displays a striking dark blue hue. It can be readily mixed with its golden cousins. It also loves to dart around in shoals close to the surface.
The silver orfe is the natural colour of the Ide. Although these fish are mostly stocked into lakes for angling (where they can grow up to 4 lb), they will still mix happily with their cousins in a garden pond. Very suitable for those owners that prefer to keep more of a' wildlife' pond
