Yes Ric. After a couple of water changes they are right as rain. Against Martins advice I added a third one - as an insurance policy because I’d hate to see one on its own. They are all very active and begging for food. Plan is a water change at least every fortnight. To be honest I really have the feeling that things went pear shaped due to my lack of knowledge. Feel really guilty, but it will pass eventually 😢

I know I've been told I give dodgy old advice, but I never did a waterchange on my pond in all the years I had it.

Top it up at the end of a very hot day and added pond dechlorinator. Have you use any dechlorinator? :dodgy2:
