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
