    Help please!

    Hi Im looking for some advice, my dad was a koi carp lover and has many in a pond in his garden, they were his pride and joy and so well looked after but unfortunately he has passed away, we have been trying to look after them but unfortunately have lost a few now, were not sure what were doing wrong and would have loved to keep them however we have no idea what we are doing. Ive looked online as to how to sell/rehome them but I reallly want them to go to someone who will look after them and not just anyone. Please help!

    Am really sorry for you loss our hearts go out to you and your family.

    Where abouts are you?


    If you feel getting new homes for them is the way to go there is a few on here that have massive massive ponds depending on where you are.

    Before going down that route is there any help we could give you to the care of them so you can keep them in the family

    Were Uxbridge based.. Thank you for getting back to me. They just keep dying! Weve lost maybe 5 now? In the past 7 months Weve done water changes, havent fed them everyday in the heat. We just have no idea what were supposed to be doing. And as they meant so much to my dad would really like to help them before they all die.

    Uxbridge isn't too far from me probably 45 mins to an hour I think. PM me your address if you want and I'll see if I can come and have a look for you.

    Any chance you could get some pictures up of the pond the filter and the fish so we can see what we are working with
    . Have you been doing water tests with a liquid test kit
    Have you seen any odd behaviour
