Default Schubunkins, next generation?

Trying to phrase this without X words.

I think one of my Schubunkins is about to have off-spring. I used to have
aquariums many years ago, so understand what is involved. Are Schubunkins
live bearers? Should I put her in quarantine, i.e. acquarium? Our pond
(bucket) is only 100 g, populated by three Schubunkin and four Koi. I
expect most will be eaten....

Koi and goldfish are egg layers. The spawn is a forcable pushing of the
female to expel the eggs, which are fertilized in the pond.

=====================
They're egg scatterers. Some may survive if you give them bushy plant
tangles to spawn in and on. I use parrots feather and hornwart placed
around the water iris and other pond plants. Goldfish also love the roots
of water lettuce and water hyacinth to spawn in.
