I fished a Sacramento Valley Pond from 12:00-1:45pm and caught a 14lb koi on floating bread.

Nice post. Aside from the coloration difference, is there any anatomical difference between carp and Koi? I've closely scrutinized the pictures, and I really can't see any difference. MM, is there something to look for other than color? Is the Koi just a domesticated common carp? I feel dumb for asking this, but it perked my interst.

i don't think thats a koi...as you see koi have much slimmer of a body and half way down its get skinny as the head is huge, that fish is fat all over...im pretty sure its a carp with cells that doesn't produce enough colors for it only, like the albino junk...

It is a koi, not all koi are slim. Here is another pic of him
