Wow! Lots of eggs. I'd put them in isolation and wait 7-10 days. You can tell the ones that are'nt alive because they go white.

To keep the water healthy for the fry you need to remove the unhatched eggs before they begin to decay and grow fungus. 99% of them will hatch within the same 24 hr period, so waiting 7-10 days is way too long.

the fry are 11 day old and still have the same amount 20
they are differant sizes
but know i can see they with out straining
when i do water changes i use the water from the big pond is it ok to take floating plants from there to put in tank for extra food sorce .
im confused about one thing
i always :cheer: heard the the baby koi will stay at the bottom for a while and that goldfish goto top?
mine are all over the tank
i have then in a 30 gal tank how long should they stay in that before they go in pond
