Introductory post, I have a 18,000 Gal pond we built when we built our home. I was a pond owner
before we moved there (Peshastin WA). So wanted a big one because birds were cleaning me out.
It has problems but I keep working on it and my fish, mostly koi are growing fine. The pond freezes over in the winter and the koi sleep, at least I hope they do. I would like to ask a question about
pond oxygen problems while we fix the pump, The temp is 38 deg now and they are still eating
I don't know how long is safe for them, some are getting big. The pump repair will probably take
3-4 days, Do I need to buy an aerator to keep them alive ? Thank you for your help P. Thompson

Never heard of Peshastin, Wa. Must be on the east side of the mountains?

Hey you should post your question on a new post cuz you will get more views that way. Nice to meet you fellow Washingtonian :)

I only have goldfish in my pond so not sure about the koi aeration problem for them.

You don't indicate how many fish you have? Typically in a moderately stocked Koi pond, as water temperatures drop less demand is placed on the Dissolved Oxygen. I would think that there should not be any issues with adequate Oxygen levels for a few days.

Welcome and oxygen also depends on how many plants are in the pond also .Can you buy a sall in pond pump as it would be a good investment or like you said an aerator because more air means less problems
