    I will be there soon. Got a pump? Need to keep the water flow to oxygenate the water.

    Having dabbled in fish farming this is what I learnt.Give the pond 6 months to settle and food to accumulate naturally.The water must be changed and or aerated daily,not to provide oxygen but to get rid of the ammonia from the fish poo.Fish can not survive in ammonia. A constant flow of water is best.If you overstock the fish will not grow, as they naturally inhibit growth if there is not enough room.If fresh water cormorants discover the pond they will clean it out in days.You may need netting. Do not put in fish that are carnivorous as you will end up with one big one.
