Hi All,
I have just acquired a fish pond by virtue of moving into a nee property. I live in east of London. I have around 4 variety of fishes, Gold Fish, Koi, White fish and a black fish. Sorry I am not aware about their breeds. I enjoying looking after them and maintaining the pond to a greater quality. It is a hard work, but worth doing it. I have many questions on the Fish pet and definitely have many questions. Will ask all of them later.

Thanks and looking forward to interacting with you all.

Welcome! Goldfish come in white and black so the odds are the white and black ones are also goldfish. Good luck with your pond!

Hello All,
I have around 50 fishes in my pond and I can see that at least 8-10 new born fishes. What is the maximum capacity ? My tanks size is 2500ltr approx. If the quantity is high, what should I do and how to ensure that poupulatiom is just right ?

It is a motor bound filteration which is on 24 hours.... and also I have a water fountain. I also put pondclear liquid once in 15 days.
Today morning I saw few fishes dying out.... very painful experience indeed.

Don't add anything like pondclear. You might also want to add air, like a aerator.
We hear on the news that is really hot there, they may need more aeration in the pond, put more o2 in the water.
