I'm culling nine of my koi. I know that I need to reduce the population their winter home. My goal is to have a good mix in the final pond. These are largely similar fish to ones that I already have.

Here are the ones that are being culled (on Craigslist). Let me know if you see something here that I'm missing.

Similar to what I have. And I only keep one type of each.
The light gin rin I would keep to grow out and see what it'll look like. I think I see color in patches that might come up? I'd sell off the rest, don't look that special to me. But idk what your others look like.

Thanks Secuono!

I will post a pic of the keepers soon. They are quick and hard to get a good picture of in the main pond. I've gone from 36 down to 15. I hope to watch the final 15 develop for for a final pond stock of 12ish.

I realized I sawed a hole in the side all of my gopro cases to connect my external mic. I need to order a new case to get under water images.

Pretty fish! I'd have a hard time choosing!

Have we seen your pond set up? I feel like you may have mentioned a 3000 gallon pond... can your pond can support that many full grown koi? Ordinarily that would be a lot of fish for the volume, but with the right amount of filtration I'm sure it's doable!

it ain't his pond we're worried about, Lisa; it's the temp winter setup!! We're all waitin' and watchin' to see how it works out for him!
