Q: Why are some live items, like pondfish, only available for a few months of the year?
Some live items are only available for sale at certain times of the year. Pond stock like koi and comets, for example, are only sold from about May to August or September, depending on the weather and availability.
There are also seasonal availabilities on some aquarium plants, and stock may be interrupted during those times of the year (i.e. Microsword, Rose Sword, Radican 'Marble Queen')
