Hiya, how long has the pond been set up for? Did you do anything to cycle the pond before adding the fish? I'm just a bit concerned as your readings for the water aren't as they should be. You should have 0 ammonia and 0 nitrIte and a reading of 40ppm or less for nitrAte.
I'd do a water change asap to get some clean water in there, around 50% if it's feasible but I don't know much about keeping ponds, sorry!
Is the fish that is ill one of your new fish? Did you quarantine the new fish before adding them at all?
Sorry for all the questions!
