"A friend of my daughter's abandoned two small goldfish at my home. They ended up being put in my backyard koi pond with three large koi. One of them disappeared in about a week. The other one has been thriving for almost two years and has gotten really big. It is about ten inches long, maybe longer. We just looked at this site to identify this unusual fish and it looks like an Oranda. I live in North Carolina. It does get to freezing temperatures here and it certainly gets hot. It sounds like this fish should not have survived these conditions. I am interested in any thoughts you might have about continuing to care for him, or her. I do not feed my koi in the winter, so the goldfish hasn't been feed by me for a few months now. Should I start feeding him before spring gets here? I don't think that would be good for the koi. Thoughts appreciated."
