    what kind of fish is this?

    Hi there,

    We have a koi pond with the standard kinds of kois. This morning we discovered some small new fish. We made a picture of these. Can anyone tell which kind this is? If this is a species which we didn't buy, how did they come in our pond?

    All suggestions are welcome!
    Thanks!

    put the baby fish in a glass container. look at it's mouth. if it has barbels (feelers) it's a koi. if not it's a gold fish.
