Pond care

I actually have a pond in my garden. My dad raised some fishes there before. They were living fine for months; however, monsoon came and killed them. He's trying to raise some more now. Is there a way to raise the fish in the pond or do I have to buy a proper tank?

I think there are some fish that you can try to raise there, like Koi,Crucian carps,red shiner (Cyprinella lutrensis),Peppered corydoras (Corydoras paleatus)

I believe the proper place to raise fishes should be the pond than a tank.it makes the fishes developed better.koi and goldfish do better in a pond.pond water are nutrients rich water where the fishes ca
n feed on algae and other organisms easily.

Oh thank you! I know pond is more healthy but speaking from past experience, I would need to learn more about how to take care of my fishes and the pond. I dont want my fishes to go dying again

If the pond is in good shape and generally healthy to keep the fishes alive and well as you breed them, I'm very convinced that it can be effective for the job. But when it's not in proper shape, it's most likely to affect the fishes negatively which might result in mass death of the fishes.

I think the koi and carp fish are applicable fish for pond, I wish I have a place to make my own pond also.

Too bad I don't have any pond at home. I can just have my small tank for now. I think you should try raising your fish in a pond. It's a lot bigger space for them. But you must clean your pond first and equipped it with the fish needs.

If you can maintain and take care of the pond, I don't see anything wrong with it. Your fishes health matters the most, so anything that would compromise their health and survival, it's best to eliminate such factors or variables.

I never have had a pond in my garden, however, I always had this desire to build a pond in my front yard and have some fishes in the pond. Since I lived most of my life in they city where land was limited, I could not build a pond. Now that I live in a countryside I am thinking to build a pond.

You can still raise fish in the pond, clean it well and put there new and healthy fish, actually this depends on what you wish to do because you can also have the option to buy a fish tank.

That was bad to hear. Anyway you can start over again. Raising and taking care of fish is stress free and relaxing.

I feel sorry for the fishes that had been killed in monsoon. You are so lucky to have a pond in the garden only few people can have that privilege. Moving on, I think you can still raise fishes in the pond with daily maintenance and cleaning. The fishes will surely survive in a clean and
healthy environment.
