What Fish? #1
Hi

I posted on here a few weeks ago with some mystery fish having inherited a large pond in the garden of our new house.

Many thanks for the responses so far, but can anyone help me identify each one? Thanks to a father in law who is a photographer and an old fish tank I've got some much better photos of the fish I have and would welcome any advice as to what these fish might be.

1 - Mirror Carp
2 - ???
3 - ???
4 - (Blue???) Orfe
5 - ???
6 - ???
7 - ???
8 - ???
9 - (Blue???) Orfe
10 - ???
11 - Mirror Carp?
12 - Goldfish
13 - ???
14 - Shubunkin???
15 - Goldfish??? - Has it just lost it's colour?
16 - ???
17 - Goldfish
18 - (Blue???) Orfe
19 - ???

Hi Steve,

They are all Koi except...

1... Mirror Carp
4... Orfe
8... Goldfish
9... Orfe
11... Mirror Carp
12... Goldfish
15... Goldfish
17... Goldfish
19... Orfe

Most of them are very underfed, and you should try to build up some body mass this spring and summer (you will need good established filtration).

Hope this helps.
