Sinker Is No Longer Sideways

Recommended Posts

I posted on the 911 thread back in early February about my Oranda "Sinker". He is a pond fish that has survived several winters just fine outside. This winter he was positioned on his side for about a month. He was still moving around but he was certainly not acting normally. The weather forecast was calling for a hard freeze for an extended time and Sinker was hovering near the top of the pond. He surely would have been iced in. I decided to bring him inside for the remainder of the winter season. He was placed in a ten gallon tank with only a few large rocks and an iris tuber. I followed the 911 thread suggestions, cooked frozen, shelled peas and special fish food. I am so happy to tell you that Sinker is once again his normal hungry self! I was very concerned that he was suffering from swim bladder problems but apparently that was not the case. Within 10 days he was back to normal. He will remain in the house until about mid-April. Then he will go back into the pond.

Next year I will take no chances and bring him in as soon as the weather gets cold.

Again, thank you for all your help advice.
