Just purchased 4 new Koi for my pond! I plan on putting them in quarantine for 4 weeks. I got a baby pool that is 2 feet deep and 8 feet in diameter set up with a filter and pump. Also got a nice mesh cover for the top so the new "kids" won't jump out.

They are pretty big- range from 9-11 inches.

I'm going to rehome the Sarassas and Comets to my friend Sheree's pond where she has a huge school of fun goldfish, so they will be super happy.

That brings the total number of koi to 7 for my pond (1500 gal). I got a new Laguna pressurized filter with UV that I'm going to install in the next couple of weeks to help out filtration. Right now I have a 50 gallon skippy-type bio filter with a UV set up. I think this should be sufficient filtration to keep the fish happy.

Here's some screen shots of the fish. I'll get photos of them when they arrive.

nice fish but they will grow fast and have babies so you may be stuck building a bigger pond or another pond .i know i have given lots of babies away and guessing some were mixed but well a free fish is a free fish :)They were just happy to get fish

I really want a Tancho. I have a Sarassa Gold Fish that could pass as a small Tancho to a casual viewer.
