GoldFish In a dirty POND
« on: September 18, 2011, 09:27:51 PM »

Hey everyone.
I have recently moved into a house with a pond in it.. The old owners said there wurr 3 big goldfish in there.
I looked at this pond and it IS very very dirty and messy . Im very happy to clean it out(well iv already started) Im not an expert on Goldfish this is the first time to have ANY. But i dont wanna get in there to much I feel I might be completely disturbing them for by the look of the pond it hasnt been touched in months. Sad
The dirt and lily pads is now over taking the water. by the looks of things the person who built it .. put lily flowers in containers then dugg them into the dirt.and then filled it with water(I dont know how to make ponds?). But now the containers are at the top of the pond and i can no longer see the bottem or the fishys. And all the roots and leave and dirt are so intertwind I cant break it up or anythang.
I have culculated 2 fishyz. i belive the other one got lost under all the roots and dead flowers that have floated to the top.  I believe this is a poor condition a Goldfish to be living in.
How would i go about moving these Fishyz without trumatizing them, or hurting them . And is it okay IF i moved them outta thurr to put them into a BIG glass bowl for the mean time ??
ANy feedback would be great . Im a totaly an amature at this and feel bad for the fish i dont know whats best for them.

Don't take them out of the pond!!!
All that's needed is to put on a pair of boots, gloves and get to pond cleaning! Cheesy You might need something to siphon the sludge out, but a shovel should be just fine! They're safe and sound in the pond as it is so all you need to do is to make them some more space in there and tidy it up!

Moving them to some glass bowl will most likely kill them since they'll poison themselves (for no reason.).
