    I feel terrible

    I just killed most, if not all, of my fish. Was going to do some plumbing work, set up the intex pool and filled it with pond water, threw in an airstone and transfered the fish, about a half hour later I noticed they were in distress and transfered them back to the pond. It was too late. They died an agonizing death jumping, bolting and doing death spirals. I just don't know why this happened. I've used this pool several times, it was water they had been in, they had air. I just don't know. I'm pretty disgusted with my self at the moment. Not looking forward to burying 24 fish.

    Rick,

    That is just awful. I am sorry for your loss.
    Could you have had some sort of chemical that contacted the pool in storage?

    Awful news. Sorry to hear.

    Like Bill, I wonder if some fertilizer/chemical could have been in contact with the pool during storage... ??

    Very sad for you.

    Best,

    Grant

    To happen that fast, it had to be some type of chemical.

    I'm very sorry.

    I got a new liner last year and put in all my babies from a spawn...within hours a bunch of them started doing the same and all 3-400 were dead in about 2 weeks...but, they would all start doing the same thing before they died...I'm guessing a chemical too on the liner also...

    That is awful news Rick. I can only imagine what you must be dealing with right now.
    It does seem odd that a pool you've used before could effect them this way, especially using the pond water and good air. I hope you find the cause because something had to have contaminated it and I know you never want to go down this road again.
