    What about chlorine on the temp pool?

    You seriously need to sort the ammonia and nitrite in the pond!

    But as your moving the fish, that's done, short term. Be sparing with feeding and keep a close check on the figures when fish have been moved.
    The KH is fine at 10. 5 is ok but starts to be risky lower than that.

    Cool, your water in your pond hasnít got any fish in so thatís why your ammonia and nitrite are zero.
    Nitrate is similar to mine from the tap.
    PH and KH are fine.
    Watch it all go haywire when you transfer your fish lol
    Probably worth a check for chlorine if you can just in case.
    Presumably youíre hoping this up to your existing filters?
