Pond Temps?

Post by Admin on Mon Jun 13, 2011 11:48 pm

Both Pond/Vat and WLP have been heated over Winter to an average of 20C affraid which I reduced to 17C once the ambient temp maintained 20C in all the systems last month.

My South facing QT and Vat have dipped to 17&18C respectively but the WLP is maintaining 20.6C facing North scratch

What are your Pond temps doing Guys?

well in the recent heat we have had my pond crept up to 26c Shocked but now sitting at 22c i guess i'll need to drop the temps down this week as over the next two weeks im showing at the cambridge show then the Essex show the week after.
Then temps up to 22c again and feed up to 10 times a day.... that combined with a turn over of nearly 5 times an hour i'll hopefully get some growth on these little babies

Mine peaked to 22C during the two weeks of `Summer` the Welsh Tundra has had thus far this year.


I can`t believe how much mine have grown whilst heating over Winter Lau Shocked

The usual trend unheated is that they lose all they have gained during the previous growing season Sad poor loves.

I won`t be able to continue the Winter Heating regime unless I win the lottery Rolling Eyes so it`s back to the feast/famine Summer Winter norm for me very sadly.

I really wish I could afford to do otherwise Sad Rolling Eyes

Hi All

Pond temp already down to 16 degs and that is with heating. Dread to think what it would be without. Current maximum temp for today by local forcast 14 degs and minimum tonight 8 degs C. Looks like winter is coming early.

Best Regards Dave

Mine would be 14C Dave without heat Twisted Evil I`m maintaining 20C in the Koi Vat and 25C in the `Tropical` WLP due to the `Silver Dollar` still being out there Rolling Eyes

Both look like `Sauna`s` first thing in the morning but I don`t want to cover either this early .

The way i constructed the fry ponds mainly has helped keep temps stable through winter but also seems to warm them up well plus they arent as effected by colder overnight temps the fry ponds are currently at 19 degrees even with 5<8 at night.



My main pond is currently at 16 degrees but due to ts water volume i would expect it to warm slower.



On side note with the shower indoors it seemed to have no ill efferct on water temps through winter . it is still the only form of filtraton on the pond other than the fines filters.

Indian Summer ?

Post by Admin on Fri Sep 16, 2011 3:24 am

Two days of Glorious Sunshine sunny here in the Welsh Tundra Rolling Eyes since the tail end of Hurricane Katia last week when I lost both Koi Crying or Very sad which I`m still reeling from given I have lost none since 08 Crying or Very sad

The Weather is phabulous and the Koi have stopped sulking since the loss of their Vat Mates ... hopefully life is on the up for us all. Very Happy

Hi Mio

Temps currently @16 deg with a little heat. Sorry to hear of your losses. This is one of the down side of keeping koi, just when you think you have it cracked. My new koi this year, a small yellow Ogon had damaged itself and therefore after a couple of days without improvement I lifted he/she and removed a couple of infected scales. Fortunately only one treatment was required without the use of anibiotics. I was amazed at how quickly the wounds healed over even with temps being at 16 degs. Unlike when treatment to koi in spring when immune systems are at a low even with temps at 18 Degs C( remember the kohaku which require several injection of Amiken to aid recovery)Apart from the obvious of having excelent water quality to aid recovery , I have always found it harder for wounds to heal after a long cold winter.

Best Regards Dave

The Tumour Koi Babe had never spawned Dave and she was kept heated over Winter ....

Possibly there was an inherent genetic defect preventing her spawning which led to the Tumour.

Her Gills were in excellent condition which was a huge relief given I had PP Dipped them all prior to sterilizing the system last year.

The Gin Chag was gorgeous ... how he leapt through the only two inch gap at the edge of the show vat during the freak storm beggars belief ...I was gutted truly Crying or Very sad

I have only ever resorted to AB`s once ... Ozone Gel will take care of injuries and ulcers I have found ... once the wound has been debrided.

Pond temps have dropped to 14.3 overnight. The highest I achieved (without heat) was 20 on August 4th for two days. My pond has a pergola with Nick Grays opaque polycarb serving as a roof. It does too much of a good job acting as shade so the pond gets very little sun.

Nice Pond and Garden Sweetie Very Happy

I was looking at Nick`s Polycarb Sheeting yesterday on his ebay site Alan Very Happy

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10mm-Clear-Polycarbonate-Roofing-Sheet-610mm-Wide-/230669329016?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item35b4f6a278#ht_2748wt_905

I wanted the `clear` polycarbonate which he only has in 10 mm thicknesses .. when 25 mm is usually recommended for covering over Winter.

My Koi Babes are at 17.5C ... but so is the heater which was on most of the night affraid and the Silver Dollar in the Tropical WLP refuses to be captured and brought back in Rolling Eyes so his heater stays on for now ....

I will have to maintain some heat since disconnecting the Sand Filter..

Hopefully the work can go ahead once all the parts have arrived this weekend.....

Shocked

How about a `Poly Tunnel`

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_kw=uv&_kw=poly&_kw=polythene&_sop=15.. or Solar Cover of say 500 plus microns which kept mine warm for years ....
