Too Many Fish, Need To Re-arrange

Recommended Posts

The fish load in my outdoor horse trough is too high. I'm having trouble keeping the Nitrates down and the KH has been dropping along with the ph. It holds about 275 gallons and currently has 10 'fancy' goldfish in it. Some have grown to be pretty good size and I believe they are getting to be too much for the tank so I'm looking for options on how to reduce the load. One thing I could do is move a few into my pond which could easily accomodate them space-wise but it is currently home to some bigger Commons, Comets, Wakin and such. It's also got much stronger currents is pretty deep (about 4.5 feet). The two Frogheads are pretty robust and not quite as 'fancy' as some others so they might be good candidates? Anyone have experience keeping their 'fancy' fish with more traditional pond fish?

My froghead, Kermit, would probably eat the comets and commons. He is a tough thug.

Thanks ya'll! That is enouraging and I'll probably give it a try. I just need some re-assurance that it will work out first. And I'm really worried that I've overloaded the horse trough. Not sure what to do if moving them doesn't address the water quality issues. :(
