I was adding water to the small pond, got busy and forgot about the water. A couple hours later it started to pour down rain and I remembered the hose was still filling the pond. Running out in the rain, shut off the hose, then after the rain, bailing out the overflowing pond.

LOL Is a 100% water change good? The water is crystal clear, maybe, I should do that with the big pond.

The fish seem fine, even the babies. I will have to take a look in the morning, we have huge storms headed my way.

Haha that happened to me a month ago. I wanted to top off the pond before leaving to go to a swap meet to get some water plants. I left the water running, and four hours later, the pond was crystal clear and the fish were fine. I think that because my pond is 1500+ gallons, the circulation of the water was slow enough that the fish got used to the new water fairly easily.

Neat, we are well also, but acidic, I would wipe out our fish, therefore a hose timer used.
