    New butterfly koi

    On Tuesday I went to pets and such and got a new Butterfly Koi for my 1500 gallon koi pond. I'll try to take some pictures of him soon.

    Koi with cloudy eyes

    Pictures of Baby Goldfish & Koi

    Here are some pictures of my baby goldfish and koi. They are the ones that I found outside in the tubs that I keep pond plants in. At first I thought that all of them were goldfish, but at least one of them has barbels, so it is a koi. They are currently in two clear plastic tubs. The water...

    Since we have an official cichlid photo thread, I thought I would create an official Goldfish & Koi photo thread. Feel free to post photos of your goldfish and koi here.
