    There are koi fry that will grow faster than their siblings they are called tobi and they are strong and fast swimmer maybe God design it to control the population of the koi fry because if their are no tobis their will be millions of kois already

    Nice video! I have had tobi goldfish that grew 10 time larger than their siblings in a short period of time. I probably had hundreds of goldfish fry this year that were no larger than an eyelash. Thank god someone ate most of them! Here is a nice article on tobis. http://www.raingarden.us/tobi.pdf

    Yeah the bigger fry are eating other fry hence the size jump. Doesn't mean that they are bad fish... In fact I would imagine that to be a sign of good health.
