fish to add to Central TX pond?
Hi all. Just recently started adding fish to my 5000 gallon pond (about 20'x10'x40 inches). Added 3 shebunkin goldfish and 3 comet goldfish. They seem to be doing pretty well right now. Looking for more fish to add.
Anybody ever add Golden Orfe to their pond? They seem like a really cool pond fish, but may not do well in the extreme heat of Texas.
What are the pros/cons of mosquito fish (gambrese?) / minnows? Any other fish people add to ponds (besides koi).
Not interested in koi due to the extra maintenance needed. I would like the goldfish to be able to survive on their own for the most part, maybe get fed supplementally once a week or so.
For filtering I have a Savio Skimmer, Atlantic Filter Falls (filled with Savio Springflo, lava rocks, stainless steel sponges), and will be adding a 7'x3' bog soon.
