How do I tell what kind of baby fish this is?

I have a pond in my yard mixed with Koi and Gold Fish. I just noticed that there are now babies in the pond. They are very small. How can I tell if the babies are goldfish or Koi or a breed of both? Also can I leave the babies in the pond or should I remove them?

    I think you can tell only when they are older, and the fins are more visible.

    They may get eaten if left in the pond, not to mention, they will overcrowd very shortly and threaten the health of the entire pond.

    Koi and Goldfish are both types of Carp, they can cross breed, likely have, and the baby fish are OK if they have some where to hide, the adults usually will not eat them all
