I have been feeding the fish normal pellets soaked in pond water for a few days now and i'v also done a 50% water change. How long before i start to see any improvements? p.s thanks for everyones help :)
The weather has varied. It has been dry mostly but was raining yesterday and today. The fish are about 3inches long. Could it be that the food has possibly gone out of date as i bought it around November, however i stopped feeding due to the weather. I only started feeding again when i bought new fish and have been using the same food. They dont appear to be rubbing against the sides but they do come up to the surface and bite away at bubbles formed from the filter outlet pipe. I did isolate two of my fish and appeared to be fine however when i released them back into the pond they began swimming on their sides again.
I havent got anything overhanging around the pond and i havent done any painting. The only thing i can suggest is that compost and lawn feed could have got into the pond. However i did cover the pond up when i applyed the lawn food. So it is unlikely.
The pond is about 1000litres and ive had it set up for about 3 months. It is filtered. Im currently using a pressurised Oase Biopress 6000 filter. Theres nothing else in the pond apart from the pond the pump and lighting. Ive tested the quality of the water and the results are as follows... Nitrite -0.0 PH-7.5 Ammonia-0 Nitrate-5.
They are new fish i bought them around 2 months ago in lots of 3 fish at a time over the space of about 2/3 weeks. They are still very young. I have been feeding them with Tetra pond sticks however i have been feeding them with peas for the last week or so. The fish do not appear to have any other symptoms
Hi guys, all 6 of my fish have been swimming on their sides for over a week now. They only swim on their sides for a second but they are getting progressively worse. I have read that it could be due to swim bladder disease and that feeding them peas helps, but this hasnt worked. 5 of them are kois and one is a sarasas comet. Can anyone suggest anything that could help please :)
