Hello,
Has anyone here ever seen these in your Koi pond? I put in a new pond last year, but these have been showing up on and off for several years in my older pond. If I'm in the wrong place to ask this please just let me know. Thanks for any help in identifying these white non moving wormish looking things.

Bill

No clue! They look like a koi delicacy though... do your fish eat them?
I've never seen them eating these, but they just disappear after a while. I'm not even sure at this point what gets rid of them. But now that I'm thinking about it these pics were taken after I moved the Koi to the new pond so I can't really say for sure if they eat them.

sissy.... these pictures were taken in Dec. I don't know if they're still there under the ice and snow that now covers that area. For some reason I didnt think of them of really being some kind of worm, just worm looking.

BlueOrca... while there are birds in the area, I've never seen them hanging around the pond. Plus they just seem to similarly formed and to densely accumulated.That was one of my first thoughts but also....when these appear in the summer they are an algae green color which is also something I thought it might have been, a strange type of (algae).

Supposed to be in the 50's tomorrow maybe I can see what they look like now if still there.

Mitch..... Great observation and suggestion. We do have snails and frogs still in that pond so that's a definite possibility, Guess I'll be searching the net for pics of snail and frog poop. Thanks!!
