I found this girl in my pond, I dont really want her in there, she is not too pretty.
She has small barbels, and some orange scales on her tummy, but
i am not sure what she is.

The face also looks shaped differently...

she is pretty, but not for top viewing, like in ponds.
Right now she is in a 20g with a small Hibuna, this is only temporary, I might decide to keep her.

she likes me too :3

Thanks!

how would a PURE carp get into my pond?

I am thinking a koi/goldfish hybrid, especially since the barbels are smaller than wild carp and domestic koi.

I'm pretty sure it's just a common grass carp. I have no idea how it got there. they can live out of water though of water for an extremely long time..
