    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 might look cloudy, but it isn't. It is just because I took some of the the pictures looking through the plastic. I am using some of my old tetra filters on the tubs.

    What should I do with them when they get big? Once it gets warm, should I set up a stock tank pond outside and keep them in that?

    My 1500 gallon koi pond if 4 feet deep, so I don't have to worry about raccoons in that. Maybe I could use netting on the stock tank.

    In my outdoor pond it is a never ending trip to the fish store just to keep the local cats and coons fed. I thought about putting a shark in there to eat some of the local free loaders :)

    That explains it. As long as your pond is deep, you won't have a problem.

    You know you actually can't keep a Great White in an Aquarium? They just die for an unknown reason. Sometimes because they just bruise themselves so much from hitting the glass and sometimes starving but some cases they just die.

    Thats good to know, trust me some idiot would try, just like the people that buy red tailed cats at 2 inches long and put them in a 10 gal. aquarium.

    Yeah, that is why you should *ALWAYS* research before buying fish.

    It happens trust me. i saw a petco employee tell a guy once that it would be perfectly fine to keep a red tail at home.
    what he failed to tell the guy was that he would soon need a 1000 gal. tank.

    I am going to move the fish into my 1500 gallon pond, once I install my DIY mechanical filtration basket.
