Pond owners and fish lovers look away; this may be depressing to see.
Taking to Twitter, @anthraxxxx tweeted a story by Muhd Ashnur, who hired a worker to clean his pond, and after a thorough cleaning, all his fish died!
He writes, “I am furious today, to the point that I might lose my mind!”
“Today, I hired a worker to help clean my pond, and he cleaned it. All my fish died.”
That’s what a helping hand is supposed to do right when you ask them to clean a pond? Wrong! Here’s why.
Though it is not uncommon for fish to die due to water changes that take place when cleaning a tank, it is advisable never to do a full water change, leaving at least 50% of the old water and combining it with new water.
When you do a full water change, it is most likely that the change in pH or water hardness and temperature may cause your fish to go into shock and die.
Not only will you end up with a lot of dead fish, but thousands of ringgit in losses too.
Netizens commenting on the tweet was able to relate to the man’s losses.
One netizen writes, “Cleaned my dad’s fish pond once. Half of his fishes dead. He nagged me for weeks. Lesson learned: never to replace the water wholly.”
“You need to mix it with some old water and put a pump in the temporary pond while you clean the pond so the fish won’t run out of air.”
Another writes, “A crowded pond can run well with good filtration system. But improper water change technique can cause a catastrophy. Harsh lesson.”
Our condolences go out to the pond owner for the loss of his beloved fish.
