We have a couple thousand baby koi fish in our pond from last year. We are going to pump our pond out this spring to get them out before our koi spawn again.
What do you guys and gals do with all the babies??
We had about a dozen koi fry make it to a decent size last summer. Some of them are black and blend right in with the rocks, so it was difficult to get an exact count--the best we could do was try to count when they were feeding in one spot, but they move fast. Our pond is about 750 gallons, so I don't want the pond overcrowded. We gave about half of them to a friend of mine who has a pond too, and so far two have died this winter.
They are not only hard to see but harder to catch .I caught a couple of hiding ones in December and they are already spoken for .I may keep the ones still in the pond .I was at 13 fish and now have 16 unless aggie or bert get hungry before they start getting fed again
