I wouldn't worry too much, my garden pond this winter froze over with just a small gap I kept open to let air in, it was like that for the best part of a week & the three fish in there all survived fine. If it gets too cold Goldfish go into a kind of hibernation so as long as they have air they can survive very cold weather.Fish_lover313 said:
Don't want to freak you out but having the water too hot is worse that it being cold, the hotter the water the less oxygen it can hold, how deep is your pond & does it have shaded areas where the fish can shelter from the sun?Fish_lover313 said:Ok thank you so much. The pond should warm up, the weather is going to be in the high 70s for the next week.
That would probably a good one for @Goldiemom to advise on, I don't really know too much about fancy gold fish, never kept them, I have 5 decent sized commons in a 230 gallon pond & they do just fine but I don't know about an Oranda sorry. Over to you Goldiemom???Fish_lover313 said:Also, I have one more question.
Currently I have 2 feeder goldfish in the pond. Could I add one red capped Oranda? Or would that be overstocked?
