Such excitement in my pond because my 1&1/2 year old Koi unexpectedly spawned this summer - I thought they weren’t mature enough but apparently I know nothing about Koi! I have at least a dozen baby fish. Now, suddenly, I have a little green frog in my pond. I expect that the fish will continue to spawn for the rest of the summer, which would mean lots more baby koi to sell in the fall (I cannot keep them because I don’t have room in my indoor pond). Should I take the frog out and move it to a body of water? I am concerned that it will eat the eggs.

If you are anywhere close to a body of water, forget about keeping frogs out of your pond. I setup two covered 35 gallon quarantine tanks for two weeks and they collected a total of three frogs. I had frogs in my main pond before I had fish or anything else.

They will eat the eggs (maybe) and the fry, but you'll probably still have more than you want.

Now I have just trapped a raccoon. I was trying to trap cats and had no idea we had raccoons in our area. I know a person whose entire koi pond was decimated by raccoons a few years ago - a family of them ate her 15 very very large koi.
