Interbreeding Carp

Postby archimedes82 » Tue May 15, 2012 8:17 pm

I have a pond that until last year contained only one carp (common). Last summer's hurricane brought tremendous flooding and with it a koi. It's rather large. The koi and the common carp have been getting along quite well, perhaps too well. Given the rest of the population ecology, I would rather not have any more carp in the pond.

Can these two species interbreed? Or, is the "dance" between them just a result of it being springtime?

Thank you.

Common carp and koi carp are the same species. Whether they will breed successfully is more down to the pond and its other inhabitants.

any such pairing (and they could easily pair) between a koi and a common carp gives us what's commonly called a ghost koi

Thanks for the info Duncan.

I''m very uneducated on this species. Do either of you know what kind of impact a breeding pair could have on other fish. Eg. Largemouth bass, various sunfish, and brown bullhead? Would the carp affect the breeding beds of these species? I noticed two hatches yesterday (probably bluegills) and the carp seem to do so much churning of the pond floor near the bank, that I'm worried it could. They are both very large.

Carp spawning near the top of a pond, as keepers we would use spawning brushes but if the have nothing else around the carp with use vegatatian. Carp like to look for food on the bottom and they dig around looking all the time for food so this is what will disturb the bottom and gravel. You could try using floating pellets to feed them (not sure if you do already) but even doing that they still turn the bottom over they will also distroy plants in the hunt for food, which is why you will not often see Koi ponds with plants in them.

I am sure others will give you a better answer but this is what I have experienced I hope it helps a little bit
