    This koi had disappeared for a few days then this morning found it in my settling chamber. I noticed the belly is large and scales are raised.

    I put it back into the regular pond and the males were right by her side and have not left her side. I'm assuming she is going to spawn and this isn't droopsy?

    I tried to get a picture the best I could.
