Parrot Feather DEAD & Gold Fish won't eat ??
Hi, My Parrot Feather died!
I have a pre-formed pond about 125 gal. I am NEW to this but have read many posts. I have a pump that circulates the water, no filter (yet), the water is clear, and the pond is mostly shaded. My house is new to me - it came with a dead pond. I cleaned the pond out about 2 months ago. I filled it and got 5 goldfish.
I put two plants in it. Hyacinth and Parrot Feather. During the last week, the Parrot Feather has slowly died. A few tips are green, but it is basically dead. I just put them in the water loosely. Any idea why it died and if I should be concerned?
The Hyacinth is doing great, growing well and appear happy.
I would like to get more plants but want to figure out why my parrot feather died first...
The fish seem happy, but don't appear to eat. I throw the feed pellets down to the pond from a window far above (hoping I don't scare the fish-they stay at the bottom of the pond). They never come up to eat. Hmmm...
