There are a total of four Tiny Carp that can be fished up in Pandaria:

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.

Just got mine tonight. After about 1,340,000 casts. Seriously though, way too much time put in for this. I feel like putting it up in AH for 20k. About a week and a half, in temple water. Pandaren fishing charm. Spent a lot of time in sha waters, with no result, also....more prosperous fishing at temple, at least you can sell what you catch.

Tonight I started fishing at Niuzao Temple about 10:30pm. I had equipped a Draenor Fishing Pole and a Highfish Hat, at 1:16am with a fishing skill of 1030, on my 368 cast not including missed catches, I caught my Tiny Red Carp. I have tired for weeks, researched and tested different areas and I believe that this is the best area to get your Tiny Red Carp. It may get a little frustrating at times but don't give up. Good Luck

Many many hours spent fishing for this one carp. I've just done it at the Nizua Temple field.. I'm around 6+ hours of constant fishing. I like to fish, but wondering if I'm doing something wrong. I generally try to keep my fishing skill at 1000 - 1100+ but.. maybe that's too high? Is it possible that having my fishing too high might prevent me from catching it? Going to try lowering fishing to 780 and I'll get back to you.

 

Update - Well I'll be damned. 45 minutes with 830 fishing did it!

A guildie of mine got this pet for me on a whim on the auction house. It was already level 25, and I have to say that it's one of the most useful pets in my arsenal.  It has poison spit, which is amazing against critters, and spiked skin, which I love against moves like stampede, swarm, nut barrage, etc.  I've found it ideal when leveling my lower-level pets in Pandaria. Plus, bonus: it heals other aquatic pets on your team! I recommend this pet to anyone who's on a pet leveling streak like me.

Fished the lake in Fields of Niuzao with skill level 780.  Caught it in less than 200 casts, came up with a redbelly mandarin.  At my fishing level, I was catching a good number of golden carp as well, but that didn't seem to hinder the drop.  Of course, probably just insanely lucky.

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.

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.
