@LHB All of our Tonks have come from different breeders in TX. Koda, L is a champagne mink (12), and Marshall, R is blue but don’t recall the other descriptive (15).

If your pond is that new, that may be the reason the fish are having issues. There is not enough bacteria etc to deal with their waste. It takes a bit of time for a pond to cycle and be ready for a fish load.
Is there big waste load from fish that aren't being fed and are in cold water? We added low temperature beneficial bacteria to the pond before and after adding the fish.

You did WHAT now?
HAHA yes I did! I threw a blanket over them and wrestled them to the ground so my husband could cut off the net. Then I put them in a dog crate for the wildlife folks. I fail to remember that I am a very small old woman. :unsure: Yes I do all the snakes also.

I can tell by looking at him that he's probably a blue mink, but his eyes are a bit greener than Lily's were. Koda looks more like champaign point except for her eyes. Beautiful cats!

I have a thing for animals and my husband does NOT! Here's my hummingbird who comes to tell me that the feeder is empty and then stays to watch me mix it up.

Yes there is a big fine but he was badly tangled and struggling and would have been badly injured if I hadn't gotten him wrapped up and the net cut off.
