my 110g gf pond

Sad to say though the big red oranda and black moor died of some bacterial infection, I was only able to save Corkee (small red oranda).

I will post pics of my seven juvies later, they're getting bigger everyday with the gel food I learn to make from this forum.

Sorry about your lost fish. The pond is pretty. How is it constructed? Is it sealed concrete? I like the little trickle filter.

Interesting that one of your fish died in a pond. I've never lost any fish while I've had a pond, I find the pond environment to be much more natural and stable. Very similar to their natural environment.

I transfer a 2 week quarantined ryukin in the pond. I thought he is healthy enough to be transferred.

Excuse my total ignorance by does the Philippines stay warm year round? Those pearlies may have to be moved inside for the winter if not. If it's warm all year round I think they'll really thrive in a smaller pond like you have.

We only have sunny and rainy season. Heat will be our only problem here during summer season about 90-100 deg F. During that time my pond has full sun so i cover with tarp to shade them. :)

Are pearlscales readily available in the Philippines? I know they do better when kept in shallow ponds or tubs outdoors (weather permitting) so I'm curious!

Yes they are almost always available on most pet shop here. Mine looks happy and active in their pond. :)

Very nice! They certainly have grown quite a bit in less than half a year! :)

You know, I haven't seen much if any increase in the growth rate of long-bodied fish when I move them from an aquarium to a pond. But the fancies grow so much faster outside then inside that I notice the change every week.

Wow you're amazing! I can't get any of mine to grow :/ even after a year. They just get dropsy ugh. I'm switching to buying baby fish if I get anymore + a new tank
