    Advice please

    Hello

    I am having to get rid of our pond and want to try and sell and rehouse our 9 Koi Carp.

    We've had conflicting messages from different people, some saying they're not worth anything and I'd be lucky to get £100 for all of them. Others have said that we could get upwards of £1k for them.

    I'm not really sure what to believe as I don't know much about Koi Carp but don't want to be taken for a ride.

    I have a video of them but not sure how to upload to this thread so you can see what they look like.

    Let's see if this link works:

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I see posts like this fairly regular and they tend to be started by someone who has inherited a pond they donít want.

    Without bowling each koi to photograph itís hard to really comment on the quality but looking at the video I would personally say they are low grade garden centre koi. You would be better to offer them free to a good home if you donít want them.

    Put them on gumtree with some better photos of the fish. Put there open to offers and see what you get offered.

    IMHO whoever told you £1k knows absolutely nothing about koi. As already said you need to bowl and do individual photos but from the vid I'd say pond fillers at best unfortunately.
