in respect of the babies not saying you are wrong but I am trying to understand what has happened, about 10 of the baby fish are white with red/orange spots and growing very fast, the eggs were noticed after i moved 6 large Koi and one goldfish from the pond to their new home, i thought it takes two to tango is there any way a koi can fertilize goldfish or vice verse? if not then i have no idea what has happened here?
as for the large black fish in the other picture it is over a foot long closer to 14" are you saying that this is a goldfish too? it was mainly the large black fish I was interested in?
Also do goldfish change color from black when they are babies?
If you are correct then it is a bit of a relief actually as they won?t grow as big as the other 2 foot Koi in the pond consuming and stretching tons of resources from the pond itself, I also have friends that would take goldfish on but not so much koi.
