    Fish hiding on the bottom of the pond

    Its been a long time since Ive seen my fish all hiding on the bottom of the pond
    KH 8
    Ph 7
    Ammonia 0 to 0.25
    Nitrite 0
    Its a hot sunny day today in Phuket so that might have something to do with it. Any ideas?

    Hi,
    how hot is it and what is your water temp? are the fish huddled near a return maybe its a lack of oxygen in the pond and this area for some reason is the most oxygenated or shaded ? failing that could be a predator has frightened them...

    Could have also been a predator had spooked them. That would be my bet based on them returning to normal.

    I think they just like to worry the crap out of us occasionally for no reason, they were all probably sat at the bottom together giggling
