Thanks CometKeith! I want to keep these 5 for decades!Hi Liz. I totally agree with all the advice you received. The only chemical you should ever add to a pond is declor. If you want to cut down on ammonia and algae stop feeding until the pond has properly cycled. They will not starve. Also you are not the first person that ever lost fish when they first started. My first pond was about 10 years ago. I lost all my goldfish except one when I first started. I felt bad because he was so lonely and I did not add any more fish until all my readings were perfect. I still have that fish and it is a pretty as ever! Good luck!
Thanks for the suggestion. I think my ammonia number is okay, and I obviously would love to see the nitr go up...I will quit feeding them and allow the green machine to do its thing.
