if they are docile it could be water temp. shock .The water going in should be the same temp as the water in it or close .You should really have an aerator to help them with the struggle

I'd put in an aerator just to be safe as @sissy stated.What is an eazy pod? Since you have had the pond for 7 yrs I assume you would know about chlorine in the water and the remover you need if you have chlorine in there? Otherwise maybe they are just freaked out about all the work going on in there home.

I looked it up to and had a feeling it was a filter .Not good for koi and as koi get bigger they need more oxygen and more filtering .That is why I finished my new second filter

Hi Ricki. it looks like you asked the same question on two different threads. I would pick the one you want to continue with and mention on the other thread that the discussion moved over to the other one.
