Introducing Fry Into Pond

I introduced three of my koi fry back into the main pond after they had reached two inches long with disastrous results. One was eaten and then spit out. He is now missing most of his tail. Will it grow back? (they are all back in the smaller pond now) At what size should I reintroduce them to the main pond? - James

I'd wait until they were at least 4 inches long, they'll swim a lot faster. Predators will have a harder time catching them.
