The Tiny Red Carp can be fished up from Spinefish Schools. Additionally, it can be caught by casting into the Fish of the Day in Kun-Lai Summit.

This pet has really nice abilites - not sure why no one uses it.  Any time you get two hit slots and one heal - that's a decent pet.

Tiny Red Carp is proving to be quite elusive. Can you catch it at the lake in the Fields of Niuzao even if it's not the fishing daily with the pools of Redbelly? I have no problem putting in the time, but if it's pointless without the daily It'd be nice to know.

Using Master Kalu'ak fishing pole, Batter Fishing Hat, and Heat -Treated Spinning Lures. Fishing is at 787 using all that.

After being quite lucky with the green carp I didnt really know what to expect with this one. I kept fishing @ Field of Niuzao hoping to get either this or the blue one. I think I spent at least 2 days, fishing thousands of fish and not getting any. It was really frustrating at some point. Then,today, I logged in after dinner and there it was, Tiny Red Carp after only 3 casts, and like 10 mins later I got the Sea Turtle. So,what to say: good things come to those who wait! And now to the blue one

Open water fishing at the small lake next to Niuzao Temple worked for me. (Fishing skill was at 727). Took <200 casts in duration of split fishing over two days. Good luck everyone.

Caught this bugger tonight in the Townlong Steppes (35.5, 53.8). I had fished there for several hours on different nights, and tonight for only 5 minutes. I caught it with a Golden Carp, the Fishing Guide posted suggested this shouldn't happen and should have been with the open water fish loots only, nevertheless it did drop with a Golden Carp catch (my fishing skill at the time of catch was 788). It never materialized in Southern Kun-Lai where I cast hundreds to thousands of times.

Took 593 casts before I was able to pull the Tiny Red Carp up in the little lake located at 35.7 - 53.3 in the Fields of Niuzao in Townlong Steppes.

 

All casts in open water (not in pools) with skill 790.

 

This was the last in the carp lineup I need, so I'm pretty stoked right now :)

Caught this little guy today from the lake in open water near Niauzo Temple in Townlong Steppes.

 

367 Casts over a period of several days.

 

Fishing skill of 780: Kalu'ak fishing pole and a Heat-Treated Spinning Lure.

 

So glad my Tiny Carp family is now complete!  Good luck to you Fishermen/Women on catching yours!

Over 1200 casts in Kun Lai Summit in Sha-Touched pools got nothing, took Equinox tip and moved to Townlong at the little lake by the Temple (35, 52).  With in 20 minutes of fishing in open water I got the Tiny Red Carp.

 

Thanks, Equinox

To answer Sweetdr0ps, the reason is because the Red Carp drops from Spinefish pools, and of all the useable fish in Pandaria, Spinefish are the LEAST valuable. And yet the pools (and the open water surrounding them) are in places that require the highest skill. So, if you are fishing in open water, there's more of a chance of trash fish instead of good fish, or the Red Carp. And since fewer people farm spinefish, there are fewer Red Carp on the AH, despite having the same drop rate.

Tiny Red Carp can be found in:

 

Pools of Spinefish

 

And the 'inland' open waters of Southern Kun-Lai Summit, Townlong Steppes and Sha waters of Dread Wastes.

 

Your max fishing skill is watever you can make it with rods, hats, lures and enchants. Higher skills = less junk = better odds

 

Check with Ben of the Booming Voice for fish of the day pools

The red scales on these fish are believed to be a warning to predators of the Townlong Steppes and the Dread Wastes that their flesh is toxic. Dedicated fishermen can sometimes befriend one.
