Question of the Day:
Pond fish in Central Pennsylvania should also establish their new eating patterns before cold weather hits, which also gives you the opportunity to observe the pond fish for any health issues. Even if they do survive, you may find you have a very unfriendly and/or skittish fish come Spring because they are not use to YOU either!
Introducing pond fish, whether it be Koi, Goldfish, Orfes, Sharks etc, to new environments with only weeks before they stop eating or even as they begin to go into torpor is not a practice that the Dreamscapes team recommends.
It could ultimately end fatally for the fish.
Proper Fish Acclimation in Central Pennsylvania
1) Float bag for 30 minutes in pond
2) Add approx. 1 cup pond water to bag
3) Float bag for 10 minutes
4) Add approx. 1 cup pond water to bag
5) Float bag for 10 minutes
6) Add approx. 1 cup pond water to bag
7) Float bag for 10 minutes
8) Individually release fish by hand into pond
