"I put a couple of hundred feeder gold fish in my pond which is about 1/3 acre and 1 to 4 ft deep this spring All feeder fish were gold in color. This fall it looks like I might have 1000 or more fish swimming around in my pond. I have never fed them. The water I pump into the pond is from a drainage ditch. Water quality is awful. I am down stream from a large dairy that dumps their waste from time to time in the drain ditch that I pump from. Never the less I have never seen a dead fish. All I can say is that feeder fish are tough SOB's. My question is; will the feeder fish change colors? From Black to Gold? Do I have to worry about them over populating? If so what should I do. The only enemy they have now is a great blue heron which I enjoy watching. Not sure I will like it if these fish make it to 6 inches in size however."
