filter constantly on or off? #2
hi!

the current pond I have I keep the fountain / filter running constantly, even at night - however my dad today (who knows nothing of pond keeping!) says it doesn't need to be on all the time and the pond will be filtered / aerated sufficiently during the day if the electrics are turned off at night.

Is this true? Tell me my dad knows nothing!

thanks! amey

Re: help - fish being bullied? #4
oh yeah - im due to move house in a few weeks and have been preparing the new pond and wondered how long it needs to sit before I introduce the fish.. and do I need to introduce one at a time?

well i havent seen the "big white fish" for a few months - think he's been hibernating, but now he's out hes being chased - not something ive seen before and these lot have been living together years..

Re: help - fish being bullied? #6
oooh never thought of that!

I've had them over 5 years now - they were indoors and went out to live in the pond last summer.

the pond is 175gal and there's 5 fish in there.

I think three are common goldfish and the other two (including the one being bullied) are either comet or shubunkin, i think.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your help!

help - fish being bullied? #7
hiya!

I think one of my outdoor fish may be getting bullied by the others!

The "big white one" who always seems to have health problems so is probably the weakest (fantail type) seems to be always being chased by the "big orange" fantail type and sometimes one of the smaller gold ones (non fantail).

"The big orange" one seems to swim beside him almost as if he's trying to nibble at his gills or something and "the big white one" tried to swim away.

Am I just being too sensitive? Does bullying exist in ponds!!?? Or are they just playing??

Should I separate him or let them just work out their differences?

Thanks so much for your help!

ps on another subject - how long should I leave my new outdoor pond before transferring my fish into it?

thanks!

amey
