We have had our pond for 3 years. This is our first year the fish have spawned. I'm unsure how old these are or what they are??

Those are fish. haha! Just kidding!

Welcome to the GPF. Someone smarter than me about pond fish will have an answer for you shortly, I'm sure!

We'd love to see some pictures of your pond!

Thanks for the reply! Do you see whiskers when they're about an inch or so big? The mouth on the biggest one looks different.

Also, no shubunkins in our pond, just goldfish and koi. I was thinking the ones with the black eyes were probably goldfish. The grayish silver ones, will they change color or stat the grayish?

Shubunkins are goldfish.

@Jackiedd I think they are goldfish and the light colored ones should stay light like that. I like the way they show up in my pond against the dark water. Some of mine are white or a pinkish white and also a slight yellowish.
