Very pretty! I quit feeding in the summer, that way they inhale some of the eggs they drop. Helps keep the population under control.

I wondered why I saw Japanese Maple leaves in the pond but no tree in the landscaping around it. Are those from before you cut down the trees, or is the plant you have growing in there growing maple-shaped leaves? The trees probably provided it with some helpful shade. You will have to be more aware of the temperature and algae growth with the additional sun after cutting down shading trees.

Not all Koi have barbels. Take a closer look at the mouth area. Koi have a lower mouth because they are such big bottom feeders.
