Sharing Is Caring.....

Recommended Posts

   The first of the year proved to be pretty tough. Lost a few to some new diseases and parasites I personally had never encountered before and some quarantined because of it. They were finally reintroduced back to the community a week ago. I was then forced to re-think my filtration system. Because my pond was made out of porous concrete I thought the good bacteria would colonized and the use of some pre filter media with uv light would be sufficient. I used this system for years and I guess did not think about over stocking and fish getting big that I would have to adjust accordingly. So I made the adjustments with the addition of a home made bio filter. I also thinned out my herd by relocating some of the smaller fish to friends and family. It seemed they were not as resilient as the bigger more established fish.  Made a vid of my goldfish community.

Hope you enjoy it. :thumbup2:

 

 

 

 

FYI: Just lost my beautiful bronze/chocolate oranda, count chocula (named by my kid). Had an on again/off again battle with an internal bacteria. He was featured in this video and will be missed.
