Has Anyone ever had a fancy Goldfish and Koi cross breed in pond?
The only fish that were capable of the breeding were my female Lion Head Goldfish and my male Butterfly Koi... There weren't as many babies as there usually are for a breeding but I suspected that to be because of the young age and the frogs in the pond.
They are interesting, they have the darker stripe my yellow Butterfly Koi had and a couple have grown longer fins also. They resemble the Lion head in the fact that their eyes are farther apart then the average goldfish or koi, they have a grey/silvery color to them, with white bellies.
They somewhat remind me of carp, it's crazy how they got the silver/grey coloring, it's actually turning orange on the fins but very lightly-- I'm wondering if other people have had similar things happen.... :]
