Koi fish are a joy to have. When I released my “little guy” into the big pond, I didn’t know if it would make it. I would have waited, but it started to get aggressive with the other fish in the tank.
This picture is my surprise the next day to see it still around. The larger Koi and Cichlids had left it alone. A week later, it’s going strong. You can see a spec of orange in the right side (that’s it).
