Pond warming but fishie is sick
Past few weeks the ice melted off the pond and it started to do the early turn to green (algae). Last week I kicked the filter back on (I only run air thru the winter) and turned the UV on, and the water is starting to clean nice.
However, tonight I found one of my 3 yo comets lying on its side. Being unsure what to do but very worried I brought it inside in a bucket of pond water, added a bubbler and began adding some salt.
Was that a mistake to take it inside to medicate and slowly warm up?
Is it common for fish to just loose it in the change of seasons?
