This behaviour has been the whole of this summer. I can't honestly remember if she was the same last year, but I don't think so.
Nothing has changed that I can think of.
The fish seems generally fine apart from being at the top all of the time. She eats like a pig and yes, swims away if touched.
She can swim under the water but it looks a bit of an effort initially to get below the surface and she does seems very "buoyant".
I haven't tested the water for a while to be honest, but we have another carp which is fine and about 30 other fish who are all totally happy.
The pond is approx 8.5' long x 4.5' wide and 3' deep all the way through.
