Was cleaning pond yesterday and noticed i have 3 new additions to it. They are about 1" Shubunkins in length and was shocked seeing them swimming around.

I love my goldies but I have a special spot in my heart for the shubbies since I had the big one in my aquarium for so many yrs :cool:

Well an update on new additions. They are now around 3" in length and to my surprise today i noticed i have 4 more additions about 3/4" in size. About to get over populated now. Do you think they will last the winter here in Louisiana?

kpremo, I found a couple 3/4 inchers in my pond last fall, not only did they last the winter but they are about 3" now and we are much colder than you.

They should be fine through the winter down here if your at least 18" to 24" or deeper in the ground. If above ground it depends on where you live and how cold of a winter we have. i have had no problems with a iced over inground pond but have lost 1st year fry in above ground stock tank that iced over for a couple of days. I lost everything in the pond that year except one small koi which I still have to this day.

As i read this i can't help to think why is it when you lose fish it's always your biggest koi and not any of the little goldies.

Often it's because the largest fish have the highest oxygen requirements, and are the first to suffocate. John
