To many fish mistake warning!

I had a 55 gal. tank split a seam last fall (2018) that was full of breeding Labidochromis Caeruleus. I didn't have any available tanks at the time so I threw them into my koi pond. I now have several hundred and it's beginning to cause a bio overload for my filter system in the 2500 gal koi pond. I live in mid-Florida and the water temps didn't get low enough to kill them. So now have to empty the entire pond, set up two holding pools and move the koi into one holding pool and the Labidochromis Caeruleus into the other. I'll have way more than I can give away to the local fish shops (yes give away). There is a cichlid farm in Lakeland, Florida I'm trying to give the rest to. Just a warning about having an extra few tanks available for emergencies.
