This is my “pond” in the front garden, I’ve had this old water feature for many years, it’s half an oak barrel. I always like to have goldfish in it, but I thought that my remaining single goldfish had not over-wintered because I’d not seen him for many months, so I purchased a bag of ten goldfish today from Pets R Wright, Hull. On checking the bag later, I had eleven!
I always like to quarantine any fish I introduce, and if you check the water feature picture above, you’ll notice that my single goldfish did survive the winter! So the gold fish remained in this small tank for a week before I introduced them into the “pond”.
