    in an above ground pond, I would think 4' might not be enough depth. how far does the pond go down below the ground level?

    did you ever take temp readings at the bottom of the pond? I'm thinking it may have just gotten too hot for them.

    I have taken to running two aerator balls and the fountain to keep my going. Well and in the hot afternoons, I put in some of the 'freeze packs' in zip lock bags to give some relief. Mine is an 89 gallon patio 'pond'. So far my goldies are doing well.

    Water depth temp at bottom was around 81 degrees, so warm yes.

    I have two aerators going, large pond specific ones to keep turnover and oxygen.

    After another bizarre incident this weekend (lily's ripped off and moved, large (huge) rocks in the tank misplaced and general disturbance, we will be getting security cameras. I am growing more of the suspicion there is some third party involved messing with the pond. Either animals, or people.

    Sounds like a smart, practical idea.
