dead fish

I took a look at the pond yesterday and was pleased to see a couple of larger goldfish swimming near the surface (I don’t know how this happens, but the fish always look bigger after the winter). I noticed that the netting needed adjusted so I went out back to take care of that only to find that there were two dead fish–one small goldfish and my rather large koi. Bummer. It has been quite some time since I’ve had a dead fish, so I wonder what happened. At any rate, I don’t plan on getting another koi–they get so big and the pond is pretty small. But, depending on how many fish are in there, I might pick up a few goldfish in the spring.
