Just sent some pictures from my old phone to my computer, found this little guy that i caught on corn and a float at a local lake. there were many different types of koi in this lake so this picture is making me want to give it another try.

There is a possibility that it could be a hybrid, but based on the photo, it looks like a goldfish.

That one must be a beautiful one while swimming. I always loved to watch goldfish swimming! So pretty!

those droopy fins are referred to as "fantail". You'll see fantail kois, and faintail common carp occassionally. They are fancy :)
