      The trick to eliminating most of the reflections on the water is to get a circular polarizing filter.
      They make them that attach to phones and tablets too.

      If you ever see your pictures look normal on your phone, only to post them on the forum and they're
      upside down or sideways... check this thread for help:

      Very pretty fish. Love the Blue Cobalt Shubunkin. Your water looks so clear! Thanks for sharing your pic with us.

      How big (size/gallons) is your pond? Very cool looking fish... Sorry to hear for your loss. Seven years is a long time!

      they almost all came from Blackwater koi, the orange ones were called orenji comets, there no longer in their listings. In mid April they have the best stock, they dont last long for sale. the large oranda is one of the few that survived last year.

      Those yellow and white goldfish in the first picture caught my eye as well. Very cool. The two bigger ones in the 2nd picture almost look like butterfly koi. Great looking goldfish!

I'm trying to intoduce daphnia to the pond, so far unsuccessful (I failed because of greedy fish ) I think they might be around about 1-3 years old. Their names are Fish1, Fish2, Fish3, Fish4... Fish10, Fish11 & Strawberry & Cream (I guess you can tell which that one is in the photos) . Their size is from 1.5 inchs to 3.4 inchs

Some were adopted and some I drove a few hours to pick up (Yellow and Blue Cobalt Shubunkins). Between the wife and kids they all have names

      They are all still pretty small maxing out at only 6" for the biggest ones, but they eat as much as you feed them so I'm hoping they get bigger this summer. Most of them started as 3" fish or smaller last year.

      New here! We have what i assume is called a mud pond about the size of an inground pool.
      I have goldfish mutts from the Wal-Mart lol and a couple koi. I tossed maybe 15 goldfish in the pond in Aug 2019, when I checked on them spring of 2020 there were soooo many! A friend gave me several in Oct 2020 from their landscape pond that sprung a leak.
      I know zero things about them I just really enjoy having them!
      I'd love to figure out how to get better pictures. And also how to get my water clearer. It won't ever be sparkling I know. Name:  20210616_202756.jpg
