I think that picture makes it like it look like your fish is living in outer space,lol! So did you say you were gonna make a pond or just leave them in the tank? That koi is gonna get big!

Did you ever do a water test? They need a lot of water changes, the ammonia may have gotten to high for the fish. Koi poop a lot, make a ton of waste.

sorry your fish died, make sure you test the water if you get another fish.

he was not a real good swimmer when i got him he just got pushed around by the water fall and had one heck of a time getting out of the bubbles curtains and he just got pushed around by the bigger fish but he would sit on the bottem and still eat what ever fell to the bottem of the tank after he passed away i did a water changed and put my other fish in a smller tank until tomorrow when he gets back in his tank i always have a back up tank full of water and always running just for times like this u all know i don't have a test kit yet but the next one i will get will be next spring so i have all winter to read up on them thanks u all
