they are about 6"s

the koi were not eating them I dont think but ripped them up. I would have never thought they acted like that. They are more of a laid back type fish right? I looked up behavior and came across them spawning. The way they were acting was to the T. Maybe it was some heavy foreplay?

I went ahead and moved them to the pond. Risky but did it yesterday and they seem fine. I transferred them in their own bags with about a one and a half gallons per bag. Dripped them in the pond and let them sit in for temp change. If they are to die from shock it would have happened just shortly after the transplant right?
