And on that bombshell... Damn Keith, you never said anything about that. I'm glad she's better though.

Well this year isn't really turning out much better. Found a leak in the Koi pond today, so I figured we'd put the fish in a kiddie pool then put in a new pond...Well F#%K ME I am pretty sure we just killed all the fish...we've lost 3 of them so far and the other 2 don't seem to be doing very well....

Did the kiddie pool have a pump for more air?

Tap water? That chlorine may be your issue.
You would be surprised how pretty fantail gold fish get, and big too. I'd switch to them and save the cash

Chlorine levels were fine, I tested the water prior to putting them in. The wife wants Koi that's what she will get, after all it is her garden I just do all the labor.

no still young fish....i honestly believe it was shock, i mean we allowed the water to oxygenate(sp?) and as i said tested it. we allowed them to sit in bags until they adjusted to the temp in the new pond...In any case I am going to build a bigger pond this summer anyway....after all its for the wife and she is my world.

I got my gf a bata fish and I was puting it into the new tank and lets just say I had the water a little warm. It started hitting its head on the bottom on the bowl. An I was like oh he must really like the new tank. Then it died had to run out and get her another one.
