Early last week the pump died. The Grand Princess and I "watered" the fish a couple of times a day to try to keep some circulation going. But that certainly wasn't going to keep the fish alive. So we made a trip to Home Depot for a new pump/filter and my handy dandy son-in-law led the troops to
capture a couple dozen Koi,
drain the slimy pond,
refill the pond
and release the fish into a cleaner home.
Two of the little guys gave their lives for their buds. We were saddened by their passing. But thrilled their friends are in now safe.
