      Koi spawning female out numbered

      Need advice. On my botton pond i have 6 medium to large koi. Only 1 is femal about 18 to 22" she is 9utnumbered by the boys mostly equal to her size. They have been on her relentlessly all day about 18 hours at least maybe longer. She is now laying on bottom of pond almost lifeless as they still harass her. When i went to net her she started movjng around again and seemed fine. Maybe just resting. Need advice

      Should i net her and move her to upper pond with smaller koi for a couple days

      I may be able to seperate her in her current environment by making up a block from the boys but worried that seperating her may stress her more...

      Or leave her and hope for the best.....

      I seperated her for a bit in the pond to let her rest. She broke out sometime in middle of the night and continued spawning until the next day. All is back to normal in the pond with just some minor bumps and bruises to the herd. The female actually looks the best compared to the boys
