Re: Goldfish?? #4
Do you have a temperature reading for your pond? I'm not too sure what the minimum temp for releasing fish would be but maybe Fred (ponds adviser) will be on later and could give you a more definite answer

Re: Goldfish?? #10
Think around 55 farenheit is correct sort of temp, how may celiciius is that?







is 12.7 recurring so the right temp I think.

Wait and see what Peedie finds out or wait for fred.
