We're based in the Midlands, UK, and today I want to talk to you about the topic of pond fish. I'm going to give you a quick video, about two minutes long, and we're going to go over the different types of fish you can keep in your garden. Most people start off with an aquarium indoors because it's very inexpensive, or even a goldfish that you've had in a bowl in the kitchen or what have you. They can outgrow an aquarium very, very quickly. Then you need to think about having a pond outside in the garden. You can keep a number of different goldfish in a garden pond. There's yellow goldfish, brown goldfish, multicolored goldfish. The next sort of subspecies of goldfish is ... You've got Shubunkins, where you can have vivid blues and whites and browns and blacks, and real multicolored Shubunkins. Shubunkins, for me, are probably one of my favorite pond fish because they don't grow massive so you don't need a massive pond with carp ... We'll come on to carp in a second, but the Shubunkins are fantastic. A lot of people regard them as poor man's koi, but I don't. I think it's a case of, they're great, they're compact things. There's also golden orfe, blue orfe. There's a whole variety of different pond fish out there. Now let's talk about koi carp. You can have koi carp-dedicated koi pools. You can have koi ponds that have got plants in there. You can keep koi carp and plants together, believe it or not. It goes against the grain, but you can keep them as a little bit of design in the pond, but you can keep koi carp with plants. There's also another fish that's sold for garden ponds, and that's tench. You can have gold tench or green tench. They do grow to about two foot long, so you can't put them in a small pond, but certainly it's a case if you can still keep a whole variety of fish in a garden pond. We've not talked about sturgeon. We've not talked about catfish. There's even a small fish that's got loads of stories and I loved it as a kid, and they're weather loach. They only grow sort of like six inches long. They're not fantastic because they're brown, but it's a real scavenger. In a fresh water rock pool that I love to build, weather loach are fantastic because they can scavenge and they can clean between the rocks and bits and pieces. There's a quick video of pond fish. My name's Mark from www.anypond.com, your trusted resource for ponds and water features. We're based in the Midlands, UK, and I'll speak to you soon. Thanks for watching. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Any Pond Limited - Specialists in Residential Pond Construction, Maintenance & Repair in the Midlands, UK Call Today: 01327 878149 The Studio 11 St Anne's Close Daventry, Northamptonshire NN11 4TW Great Britain http://www.anypond.com

Hi, I have two quite big goldfish, a common and a shubunkin who are about 12cm and so I was thinking of putting them into a garden pond now. Problem is, my garden has concrete flooring that I can't dig into, and I have seen these above ground container ponds on YouTube which looks really good. My main worry with getting one is that in the winter will it still be too cold for the goldfish (because it isn't going to be buried into the ground as such, and I know the fish like to almost hibernate in the depths of the pond)? Please help me out, I don't want to buy it and move my fish in there only to have them die over the winter!

Hi Arya, thanks for the comment, most of the preformed ponds are a good size for a couple of fish. It all depends on the winter really and the fluctuating temperatures, the cold will not kill them but lots of fluctuations will. I would make sure the sides are think. I have a few clients that put insulation around the pond.


If it was me then I would recommend making a simple timber or railway sleeper wall (then the timber will insulate the water a little more) then use a liner to create the pond.


I also have tanks and plant cats that goldfish survive in each winter with out me knowing they are in there. But I guess they are hardly little guys, if you have them indoors make sure you don't wait to long before putting them outside or you will find the don't like the change in temperature from inside to outside.

I have a res turtle and looking what fish to put in kiddie pool pond no aeration?
The Pond Advisor
The Pond Advisor - 7 years ago
Yes that will help. If you don't have power close by what about just running 4mm air line from air pump close to a power supply
Ramiro Hernandez
Ramiro Hernandez - 7 years ago
OK How bout a solar floating fountain?
The Pond Advisor
The Pond Advisor - 7 years ago
OK, It will depend on the amount of waste in the water, as the bugs processing the waste can live with less oxygen, short answer to your question, its debatable with out aeration.
Ramiro Hernandez
Ramiro Hernandez - 7 years ago
Any Pond I live in Garland TX is it OK for them to be with turtle and no aeration?
The Pond Advisor
The Pond Advisor - 7 years ago
Were about are you? You will have to bring them inside if you are like us (Zone 8) in the UK. Pleco's would be ok in the summer but again inside at least in winter months
Ramiro Hernandez
Ramiro Hernandez - 7 years ago
Any Pond It's outside roughly 10 inches I was wondering if I can through a couple of plecos or some other fish that can reproduce in there with him
The Pond Advisor
The Pond Advisor - 7 years ago
Ramiro How deep is it? If it's less than 18" 45cm the water temperature will fluctuate too much.
