Hi guys thanks for all this advice, pond been on now and running for at least a week and I have noticed there to be fish in there that the previous owner left.

Any idea what these are? Would you hold of stocking anymore with these in the pond?

Thanks again guys!!

Koi and goldfish will interbreed, too, which is ok, you just get "mutts" instead of koi OR goldfish. LOL It won't cause any problems with adding koi to them, though, as long as you have a large enough pond for the koi. Those goldfish look short and fat or it might be the way the photo was taken in the water. I thought at first they might be fantail goldfish, because of the shape. If they have a "triple" tail, they are fantails.

They do look very "stubby" indeed. Any way you could scoop one up in a net and snap a photo to see if maybe the water is distorting their shape/size?
