baby goldfish
ok i just found some baby goldfish in my pond. last time my goldfish spawned it was nearing fall,and we just put the babies in a bowl. they dint get to big until the next year when we put them back in the pond.the only reason they died was becauee a pelican came to the pond do have a little snack. i guess what im asking is should i take the babies out now and place them in a bowl? ill take the goldfish out much later when the weather turns cooler,and fall comes.

if you're worried about flying visitors
nicking the babies,then take them out.
other wise leave them a little longer.

ok i got the baby fishes in a bowl with pond water they were in. they seem happy. im starting to think they might be bristlenose minnows. they look like minnows but have a bit of orange on their bellies,and under the stripe along their bodies. what do YOU think?

You'll need pictures to have their identity confirmed or be patient while they grow.
