    Maybe it is beacuse they re not used to living in a fish tan. They are used to a big pond. To get your fish out of the pond try a big net like one you would use for a pool.

    1. Did you slowly acclimate the fish to the new tank water? If not, change in temperature/ph probably put them into shock and killed them. Use most of the original pond water to fill up the tank. Be sure to dechlorinate the tap water/remaining water used to fill up the tank. Put the fish in a bucket 1/2 full with pond water. Slowly, over the course of an hour add the fresh water to the bucket(dechlorinated water) so they can adjust.

    2. Use a bucket and start taking the water out of the pond, till there's only a little left. That's how I had to catch mine.

    the fish probably died from shock of being transfered. try mixing the water with pond water. Depending on where you live if the pnod is 2 ft under ground the fish will probably be ok, stop by a pet store or a pond shop and ask for help.

    Fish , cold water that is..easily adjust to temperature changes. They can live in the pond. If the pond is shallow, since it will easily freeze you might consider taking them out.

    If you do take them out remember they will go into shock if there immediatley put in a warmer water or colder water... let them adjust easily but letting them float in a bag of there pond water inside the tank about 15 min.

    1. If it was getting cold in the pond and they could still live in it they probably just got accustomed since it's their natural habitat. Why they died in your fish tank might have been because it wasn't as cold as the pond they were used to living in.

    I don't understand your second question, sorry.

  • put the pond water in the tank. if your transferring them to a tank with tap water in it from pond water.. thats why they are dying. they're used to the natural enviornment of the pond water.. thats what it sounds like. and they're going into shock from being in the new water because some tap water can have some harsh chemicals on it that the fish arent used to.

    If you live in the UK, the water company's put stuff in our water that is lethal to fish, you have to get "Tap Safe " from your local pet shop and put a capfull in the fish tank.

    they are dead because of the sudden temp change if you need to get the others out of the pond you might want a minnow Seine
