Apparently one of my neighbors, without my knowledge, dropped a new fish in my pond, because I can't explain where it came from. And I doubt it fell from the sky though the pond netting..
I have a 250 gal pond that came with the house when I bought it 10 years ago and I've had the same fish since then and who knows how long the previous owners had them. I've never added any more fish to the pond, and they have never had offspring. I have one monstrous Koi and three smaller goid fish.
I was none too happy to find a new fish in the pond that might introduce some new nasties to the environment, plus the pond is already crowded. I caught the little bugger ( not easy since he is just over 2 inches ) and did a water exchange just for good measure.
Now I am just a fish guy by circumstance, since they came with the house, and I know quite a bit at this point about my own fish, but I don't know much beyond that. I was wondering if someone could identify what breed this new immaculate fish is..
Thanks for the help...
