hey, i had my koi before in a much larger pond in another house! duh had too move. um i havent posted the measurements because i am like opposite hours to you guys, also got work and dont finish till late ill get them up today since its friday

nah they havent gotten any worse, i highly suspect starvation but that could be just me...would 2 days starve koi? since no others died either that or they were doomed from the begginning since the biggest one is still around with me :D

i have a pond of 550G and have 6 not so small koi and not had any problems
even when i had the tetrapond pfxuv5000 filter which couldnt cope with the waste load
so just had to put the work into cleaning it and water changes every other day to keep the water spot on till i bought a filter to do the job properly

im going for water quality issues not starvation koi can got for 10-14 days without food
and the fish that has died has lightned the load on the filter slightly but that my opinon

Your are of your trolley putting more fish in there, You need to get your problems sorted out first and the slowly introduce fish to let your filter get up to speed OH and you need to get a liner of some sort in there.

the pond is fine and the fish are fine. i went out to a koi farm and they said that maybe the reason that they dont come up is that they are scared and that there is not enough fish so i have bought more fish, they are now coming up to feed frenzying

im not looking for trouble but i have seen the results of my cousin, he is a fish expert, so he told me to add some salts, and add maybe a couple of fish, so now they come and feed

Oh well then if your cousin is a expert you wont be needing any advice from us now, That saves all of us typing useless advise for you eh ????? Its the fish's welfare we are all thinking about not whether you can see them eating, Your obviously not bother if you kill some more koi,,,,

rofl 100 euros aint gonna pay for it haha. the pond doesnt have any problems no more, im completely serious, unless your talking about the nitrite levels then well that will go down. im thinking of buying some concentrated bacteria from france to help kick start the filters bacteria levels what you guys think?

and please no more 5h*t, if your not here to help me then dont post

and of *!*%*! i care if my koi die, and i do care for there welfare and health. but i have noticed lately that they have been more active and that they are coming to eat, i also put in parasite stuff and medicine incase they have fin rot or something like that ike etc

I would take out the Koi and add some goldfish [:-]
Goldfish are the way forward.

i have 3 goldfish in there..well some people think they are koi idk if they are or not. i honestly wouldnt like having too many goldfish in there

i just remeasured my pond....

im so ashamed at what i got :S

i must have put the wrong unit in the calculator it ended up being
193.4 gallons
732 litres

this is unacceptable so im going to extend the pond as far as i can, god i didnt realize how small it really was

I'd like the chans ta visit you in Hong Kong and help with your pond.
I'd probably also take the opportunity of fitting your keyboard where it aint so sunny.

You be careful that a UFO don't use its IQ level beam as it floats by your reservoir, sucks you up and performs many complex surgical operations on your head before realising it was a waste of time and they swap you for a goat!

Next thing you will be saying that you keep half a dozen amazon pirahnas in a coke can!
