Storing fish during pond cleaning
So either this weekend or next, now that it's warming up, I want to drain, clean, probably do some minor repairs and tweaks, and set up the pond filter and waterfall.
It'll probably take half a day.
So during this time... I need to figure out what to do about the fish. I have eight goldfish, five that are a good size, the other three still smaller. I don't have any huge storage tanks, I was thinking of getting a rubbermaid bin or two and filling them with the pond water, then add a small pump to circulate the water and give a bit of aeration. Would this be okay and safe for 4-6 hours?
