How To Release New Goldfish Into The Backyard Pond Safely / Pet Gold Fish
It is exciting to get new Goldfish for your backyard pond or tank, but there are a few things you can do to ensure your new friends will settle in nicely and thrive.
Set up your pond at least a few days before, acclimatize your goldfish in the bag for 10 to 15 minutes, cover with a tea towel if you need sun protection, you don't want the bag to heat up.
Gently cut the bag open and slowly introduce pond water to the bag, release the fish into the pond. If your fish traveled a distance or were stressed during transit, they may have faded in color however after a few days the goldfish will brighten up.
