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...

It does look like it. Try reading this for the hybrid article.

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

Those are the most amazingly brilliant gold/bronze colored scales. I think she is gorgeous!!

I'm convinced this is a hybrid.

I think its a common carp

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..
