About Me


Thanks for taking the time to visit my goldfish blog. My name is Jamie Boyle and I have been involved in the goldfish and koi hobby now for over 18 years now. It all started off as a hobby just like it did for you. I remember having my first aquarium that my grandfather gave us which we had bought some Angel fish. We had those for years and after tropical fish we decided to move right into the coldwater fish.

I remember buying my first goldfish, then another and then another. After this I wanted to build a pond at my parents house and start raising goldfish and koi. With the help of my father we started breeding and raising thousands of fish. We have spawned everything from regular goldfish, shubunkins, orandas, sarassa comets, koi and butterfly koi.

After being successful in breeding goldfish I decided that I was going to start my own business supplying pet stores across Atlantic Canada. I started up my business called Country Koi Fish Farm and sold aquarium fish and pond fish to the general public and wholesale as well. We then introduced pond plants to our inventory and started selling many different varities of water lililes, marginals and floating aquatic plants. I really enjoy what I do and I don’t even think of it as a job. A dream job if you wanna call it….

I started up this goldfish blog to offer help to people starting in the goldfish hobby for the first time. Through this blog I hope that I am able to show how to treat goldfish diseases and parasites when they occur and hope that you learn a thing or two while your here. I look forward to answering all your goldfish and pond related questions.

I wish you all best of luck in your new hobby and for those just seeking help and advice I’ll be more than happy to lend a hand. Enjoy my goldfish blog and look forward to seeing reading your comments and questions.

    Thank You! Thank you for having this website. I am a pet sitter in Orlando, Florida and a mom of two boys, 2 and 4. As a pet sitter I do not have much experience with fish, but as a mommy we have 2 goldfish. Each of the kids got a goldfish when they turned 2 and could help care for them. This week we noticed black on their tails, the boys were beside themselves, after reading on your website how to treat this, I was able to get them to bed with no more worries. What a releif and what great info. Thanks, Ashley

    You are a good genius man when it comes to Gold Fishes

  3. % days ago I purchased 2 redcap oranda’s 2 days later one died and now the other one does not look so good. It is not eating stays towards the bottom of the tank and when it does move it’s movements seem jerky. I changed about 20% of the water and have been testing the water but levels seem okay. I’m hoping to save this fish because they were a gift to my 6 year old daughter who got baptized. Any ideas???
