    Stop feeding when the water is 80? That's half the summer here. I feed mine as much as they will eat when the water is 80°. I will slow down if it hits 85 and stop if it hits 90° though.

    The parent set is all Kumonryu. No beni kumonryu in there either. They were spawned artificially, so no mistakes were made....no extra fish sneaked in there. They don't have the bluish skin that...

    I have some friends that have a koi farm here in South Carolina. Last week they harvested a pond that contained their Kumonryu spawn and were surprised to find these little gems. They are white with...

    I noticed you said you are using test strips? First of all, throw them away and purchase a test kit that uses a test tube of pond water and added drops of liquid regents. Test strips go bad very...

    no, it's not normal to lose fish. low kH means unstable pH and that can kill fish. You may want to start a new thread though....this question is going to get lost in this thread.

    If he sells them for livestock tanks they MIGHT be OK for fish....it's hard to say. I'd cut the top off and pressure wash it. Then I'd treat it with a really strong batch of potassium permanganate....

    chances are in an unprotected pond, they will get eaten by a predator (heron, otter, raccoon). Sorry to say it, but your parents are mistaken. They are not limited by the size of the pond. A 50...
