Your water temperatures shouldn't be fluctuating that rapidly, even with a shallower pond. Where are you measuring the water temperature and what are you using to measure?

The biggest issue is the stress on the fish. They are able to adapt to the temperature shifts when they happen slowly. But you're reporting some really fast shifts.

I hope I’m just misunderstanding....... You “take water from the center.” Are you measuring the temperature of the water when it’s in the pond, or are you removing water in order to get a reading?
