I have a pond that is doing well, but I have a friend that needs help. I have tried everything I can think of. She has a small approx 250 gallon pond, one of the premade kidney shaped ones. She has tried several times to put small goldfish in 2 or 3 at a time but they all die pretty quick. She had a pump only and it was right under the waterfall so we added a second pump, this one with a filter box, that is attached to a spitter. So now she has 2 pumps and 2 areas feeding into the pond, one on each end. We also added plants, parrots feather and hyacinth. Went and got 2 small goldfish today and they only made it a couple hours. They seemed to be air hungry...but I don't know how because the pumps should be circulating the pond volume in less than an hour. Any ideas on what the issue is?
