goldfish doesnt do well outside??
i brought 5 common goldfish for my pond last week..acclimated them in my pond for over an hr in the bag adding pond water every 15mins..anyways i left them overnight..we had really bad weather (hail and bad wind) checked on them in the morning and one of them was upside at the bottom..i thought it was dead but went to net it out and it swam normally...i took it out of the pond and put it in a large 150litre container with a filter..bring it inside..left him for a day and he was fine again??..i then placed him and his container over the nest night to lower the temp so i could then put him back in the pond..came back the next day and he was upside down again??
so i brung him back indoors and he is now fine?? i cant keep him in a container forever?? and i havent got space for another tank??
any help would be appreciated

Maybe just a poor specimen but I'm concerned about the other goldfish. A large pond is indicated and so I am hopeful that you have such a set up?8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
Gouramis, barbs, rasboras, plecos, corys, tetras, fancy guppies, swordtails, ottos, rainbow shark, upside-down catfish, snails, and Max and Sparkles the bettas.
