A lot like the Albino Sterlets the Golden Sterlets are one of the most striking fish that you can have in your pond.

At 8-10" these Gold Sterlets are strong and robust and are easy to keep provided that weed is kept to a minimum and the water quality is good.

The Sterlet is the slowest growing and smallest of the Sturgeon varieties available. It is ideal for ponds of 1000 gallons or more which would not be large enough for some of the other varieties available. The Sterlet can grow to over 1m in the wild but usually maximum size they reach in a pond is about 65cm. This is one of the easiest sturgeon to keep.

Sturgeon food is available in the Pond Food section of this website.

    I ordered two along with 20 small koi. APC (courier) delivered the fish well within the time window. Fish arrived well-packed and looked healthy.
    The sterlets looked very different from each other in a pleasant way. One is a typical golden whilst the other has a black stripe dorsally which is quite striking.
    Both are a good size and have settled in well without stress.
    I'm a Koi lover but I think Sterlet Sturgeons have become my fave fish!
    I sent a few emails with questions, Andy responded promptly and is very knowledgable.
    Would highly recommend CarpCo. I'd give them 6 stars if I could.
    I will be ordering more from them as well as plants for spring.
