    Help to identify fish?

    Hello, I have a large and deep patio pond set up with some goldfish as I know it's not big enough to contain Koi. I have noticed that my apparent sarasa comet which was given to me for free from the shop as it was the runt and being bullied is now quickly catching up to the size of the other fish and has barbells which I know goldfish do not have.

    It is white with long flowing fins, almost translucent at the ends and a single orange section on its head. Is anyone able to help identify this variety? It's likely I will need to rehome it.

    Apologies, the pictures are not great bit I will try and get some better ones.

    I am no expert but with the long fins maybe a butterfly Kohaku ?

    It would make sense also as it has a poor pattern of a koi hence the give away.

    Ok thank you both, luckily I know someone with a large koi pond so I'm sure he can take it.

    Where are you dandelion?

    I rear fry and keep the freaks and misfits in my pond that no one else wants. It’s like a koi version of the cantina scene in Star Wars. So happy to take an extra koi if you struggle to find a home ..
