I'm not going to deliberately try and breed my goldfish to my koi, I just keep both so its possible that I could end up with some. I know how interbreeding across the lines of species work. I just find the subjects interesting and would love to have some hybrids in addition to my koi and goldfish.

This year i had an orfe and tancho sarassa comet have babies in my 4 ft breeding tank. The babies are about two months old and doing well. It was an experiment i tried and to be honest i cant wait to see how they end up.

Welcome to the forum Koifan83 where are you from in the UK my friend?
Yes I've heard of the Orfe crossed koi before now basically nearly anything out of the cyprinid family can be crossed with koi or goldfish .

Hope some of the people who posted here are still around. I have some Hybrids, they are dark with highlights like yours( LibraKoi ). Mine are 3 this year, and I moved them to a seperate pond to see if they will breed. All are dark, but some look more like goldfish, and others more like Koi. most of the ones thst look more like koi have barbles. But only 1 small set. I read somewhere that koi are suposed to have 2 sets. I know who the parents of mine are. I only had 1 male breeding size fish at the time. He was a huge red and white long fin Goldfish. My only breeding size Female koi was a Yellow Metallic short fin. I saw eggs about 2 months ago. I'm going to clean out pond this weekend ans see if I have any little ones. I will take/post pics

I'd like to see photo's of some nice looking hybrids. Sounds interesting and hope somebody here who has koi and goldfish will do some testing.
I have had hybrids before, I've notice I have babies in my pond today. T

It's only about one and half inches long, I have some in my pond up to 3 or 4 inches. I have not noticed any barbells so far. I had some with a fancy gold fish years ago, they didn't have any either. The father is the Koi orange, black and silver, mother a pure white goldfish.

@Hybrid koigold and @Christina Whitten Hello and welcome to both of you! This is an old thread, started about 6 years ago, so not sure if anyone is still following it. Sometimes it’s better if you start a new thread.

Why don’t both of you head over to our “introductions” topic and tell us a little about yourselves and your ponds! We love hearing about and seeing pictures of ponds!
