Congratulations! You'll probably find more over the next few days. They look to be about half an inch long?

:rofl Thanks, This one is about 1/4 of a inch, Kids said they spotted two more. Mom's a pretty little pond Comet that has white tail fringe and Dads are two shebunkins. So they could be pretty colorful. :D I'm out to try to round up the other two so I can get the pond cleaned up and the fish kids back in! :) I'll try to get pics of Mom & Dads later on!

Sounds like they are going to be pretty. 1/4 inch! Your family must have good eyes to have spotted them. ;) B)

:rofl I wear bi-focals Fish! We found 6 more today, looks like the two biggest are several weeks old, the others are even smaller......... :o All I saw was tiny shapes, mostly eyeballs and tails. The kids where out spotting with me. The water was down to about 3" or so.

Here's a batch of pics I took today. The white background is a 5 gl bucket, I zoomed in on these. You can see the difference though in the bigger older fry compared to the smaller ones though. And the bigger one is a bit smaller then the one we found last night. So Fish is probably right, the two bigger ones are closer to the 1/2" including the tails. Still tiny..... :o

:D Hey Kathy,Congrats on your Fry find!!! One thing I've learned from Heather and Erika ,is that it's amazing how much bigger some fry are than other's! They probably are one whole batch. My daughter's fry babies had a shub for a Daddy,and out of thirty seven fry,I think only 4 turned out looking like shubs. Good luck with them all,and of course, Post more Pics!!!! :lol:

Congrats on the goldie fry...raising some myself now. It is truly amazing to watch them grow and see some develop a lot faster than others. I agree with manini that you are a great photographer...I have problems trying to get a good shot of them cause mines are very active and are barely a centimeter. Thanx for sharing the pics with us...*hug* :D

:D Thanks Devs,Fish,Man & Tazz.

The babies are doing fine so far. Eating good too! On the camera, I have a Sony Mavica, goes up to a 16 x zoom and I run the pics through Paint Shop Pro 7. Makes it nice to clean up any fuzzy's or do corrections, make a kewl framed pic etc. I love that program and the camera. Easiest to use I have found and very versatile, takes floppy and/or MS. Takes good pics right off Never much to muck with. :heart

I have the parents in my Stock tank now to keep it running in case I need the tank for hosp tank. They will keep the filter going & established. Plus I suppose the koi will spawn soon, at least by fall and I didn't want the two boy's joining in on that fun,lol!

Well, at least the pond is clean for the summer now. Everyone is happy! :D

:rofl No, I moved the baby's inside to a tank. They are going to be moved up into the 35 in a week they are growing so fast now! I've to move my stock tank though into the garage for winter. Seems the shebunkins had a few more in the stock tank and I have fry coming out my ears now! :blink:

My koi also spawned after I did the clean down. I thought they hadn't until a couple of weeks ago a saw something moving, you know the look. The triple take jaw drop........

So far I have around 20 baby butterfly koi I have seen and looking good! :)

Thanks CU....

I'll take a new pic this week and post it up. I've been so hectic here with hubby ill and tests going on and worry's I'd almost forgot this thread. :(

Posted up new pics in a new thread. I just discovered another set of new fry with the koi kids too. Too small for pics though and will be next summer before I can get photo's! Darn sneaky these koi kids are! <_<

Yup, they are! Hard to believe a set of eyeballs and a tail gets up to 32" or better from something so small. My first set of fry are two weeks older then the butterflys and the butterfly koi are already bigger then the shebs.
