Hi I have a small pond where I keep my 4 goldfish. This morning when I went out to feed them I noticed one just sitting completely still on the bottom of the pond tucked away in a corner. At first I thought he was resting but normally they would jolt about once they saw I had food. He didn’t and didn’t even look to be breathing. I didn’t check to see if he was alive as I had to go to work. My water parameters are normal and he was perfectly fine last night before I went to bed. It was very cold last night and we got snow but they have survived the pond freezing over before so I don’t know why they all of a sudden would die in the cold. Is it possible he has entered hibernation? Or is he dead? If so what are the reasons for a perfectly happy healthy goldfish to go from lively to dead the next morning?
