    I lost about 4 small Rudd. Happened just after feeding. Was like knocked themselves out. Been spreading feed now & not using floating food.
    Wondering if any one else had similar happen. I did wonder if been chocked by pellet. But they would just lie on sides , half swim away the find them dead later.

    Wasn’t your pond about 200 gallons (or am I miss remembering)? And you had a good many fish in there. Maybe you’re over feeding them.

    @Alanbutt You have posted this in the “general chat” topic. I have asked admin. to move it to another topic, more appropriate for your problem.

    I agree with @Jhn , first sign of illness/death I'd test the water
