so my test kits say that the water is…

….. .Pond water
Amonia 0
Nitrite 1.0
Kh 5
PH 8
Nitrate 20

Tap Water
Amonia 0
Nitrite 0
Kh 4
GH 10
Ph 7
Nitrate 5

I bought kh up and added it to the pond so hopefully it will stabilize… My pond guy is hopefully going to come out before the weekend to take a look at the fish, will keep you informed thanks everyone.



So no other way of testing for ammonia until friday now, my nitrite has gone down to 0.5 though. Although still seen one fish flick tonight. Ph is at 7.5 which it has never been before, always 7 or a 8, so that is better with the ph buffer. I will get some more of that also on friday. I am in work 10 – 6 tomorrow, and no where will be open. I will do another water change regardless in the morning, or at least as much as I can. Then again tomorrow night, with no food. I just hope my sturgeon will survive, as they must be starving by now, and I know they don’t fair well without food.

Pond is almost full now, so will be turning tap off for tonight.

Will message you as soon as anything changes.
