Just brought home 6 small 2-3 inch koi (select and butterfly) along with a 3-4 inch Shubunkin goldfish. The fish are, as to be expected, a bit shy for their new home. They are bunched together in a corner at the bottom of the pond. I have two lilies in the pond setting atop bricks that I'm hoping will be adequate for them to hide under when they are ready. The fish, when they move, tend to move to the corners of the pond and stay at the bottom. I suppose this is to be expected in the beginning. Do they eventually get comfortable in their new home and start swimming about and higher up? Perhaps its a bit unreasonable for me to deprive them of the open channels in the concrete blocks that the lillys are perched on? I'd like the kids to be able to see the fish for the first few days and I suspect if I give them more places to hide they will. About care of the lilies? They are are hardy lilies. It appears they are starting to get eaten by insects. Is there anything I can do to prevent this? About feeding the fish. I think they are so scared right now, they are not eating. I have about 20 pellets floating on the water for about an hour now with no takers. Thanks for the insights you can provide to a new fish owner.
