Here Fishie Fishie

We are new to this whole pond and fish thing……just a few months under our belt and a lot of lessons learned! Sadly, we didn’t realize our waterfall was not working properly and the fish were not getting enough oxygen so we lost 4 fish. It was so sad but no one has told us what to do and what not to do. Last weekend we went to the pond store to add to our fish family.

 We came home with 2 new Koi and 4 beautiful goldfish. And Goldfish are no longer the orange small fish we all think of. All of our goldfish are big and have beautiful colors like grey, black and even yellow!

 When you bring them home you float them in the pond for about 30 minutes to acclimate the water temperature……..floating fish!

 Then we opened them up and welcomed them to their new home! And they are fitting right in, fish get seem to get along with one another very well! I love having a pond….yup, we now realize it is costly but over time we will hopefully learn more and more and be able to navigate different situations with the pond better!

TGIF! My family gets in tonight at 10:30pm and then my Dad and Marissa are leaving Monday morning while my Mom is staying thru next Thursday. I still hope to be blogging but if I miss a day or 2 you know why!
Have a great weekend friends!
