Hey, guys! Took some more pictures of the goldfish in our pool. :)

Most of them are babies unless otherwise stated. The 'adults' are all the ones we actually purchased. :heart

This is a baby we call Asher who is just now coming to the surface and letting us get a good look at him. He is STUNNING, probably one of our top 5 babies. We can't wait to see how he turns out as he matures. :D

Fish1.jpg

Three babies including Asher. We call the one to the right 'Baby Dalmatian' because we have an adult that looks just like it.

Fish2.jpg

The big one in the center here is an adult. Her name is Creamsicle. :) She used to be a two inch feeder fish! She's about 8 inches at least now.

Fish3.jpg

Every one of these is a baby excluding the large white and red one in the bottom right whose name is Orca. :)

Check out Asher in the center, show off~ :D

Fish5.jpg

The large one here is called "White Dalmation" and is one of our huge females. :)

very nice! Are those goldfish or koi?

Goldfish. :)

They are gorgeous! I would love to have a pond some day. :) I can't believe how many babies you have!!!!! That's crazy! :yikes I love how your four-inch babies are bigger than all my fancies... :rofl

I know!! We have a couple hundred-- and the crazy thing is at that we have 6-8 inch babies that can only be 4-5 months old AND there is a little group of about 5 babies that are like an inch long that are still flitting about the pool together. It's crazy! :D We only started with about 20 adults!!! And our babies have breeding stars, EEK. :heart

How big is your pond? Your situation is why I get annoyed with people who say pond-type goldfish need 50, 100, or more gallons each in an aquarium or need to be in a pond. The only way you can keep a pond at a stocking level of more than 20 gallons per fish is to cull the babies or start with large adult fish. The bigger the adults are and the more you have, they more effective they are at eating the eggs. My front pond has about 20 gallons per fish, and in the two years in which it has had fish old enough to spawn, exactly one fry has survived. His name is Wonder, for obvious reasons.
