As some know, I am in the middle of a pondbuild. Nothing fancy. Above ground 550. A friend who keeps a retail pond here offered me some fish as she knew I was building. 7 fancy tails from 3 to 5” plus tail. Nice assortment. These were in their wintering tub. I quickly set up a larger tub on the porch with good filtration, cover (water lettuce and hyacinth), some hogwort and brought them home. With 1/3 water changes every other day, they seem very happy in there temporary home. I have them eating out of my hand. They have been there 3 weeks. What I am wondering ,is there anything to watch out for specific to these fish that I don’t already deal with concerning other species? Advice very much appreciated. Can’t wait to get them in their new summer home!
