So I pulled fry out this year for the first time and have a few...weirdos. So I just wanted to ask yall with experience if you've ever seen any like these 2 in particular. First guy has what I call a triple tail. He has 3 separate tail fins. Two longer ones on bottom and one short one on top. Not a fan tail. His tail looks like those Spears that people use for spear fishing. Second one is just FAT. Since I pulled him out about a month ago he has been this round little ball with fins. I though maybe he was sick, constipated, dropsy something like that but he's been this way for a month. And he's so active and has a great appetite. No round bodies fish in the pond, I have comet, fancies, shibunkin, koi.

Fish tend to produce lots of anomalies. Those fry are ones that would be culled in a commercial operation. Some just don't survive because the "differences" make it hard for them to get food or swim. Yours are lucky to have been born in your pond!

Will be interesting to see what they look like when they are older.........:)
Oh yes, I'm so interested in what my little fat baby will look like. Maybe his body will be kind of like a ranchu? The picture really doesn't show how round he is!
