"I have two new 2" comets in a circular 30 gallon outdoor pond. As its sides are only around 12" high I have provided a fairly large covered area made up of old broken pots (all sanitised) to give them protection from any passing predators like birds and the ever intrigued neighbourhood cats. Though apparently healthy and content when coming out to feed, they rarely spend much time swimming around in the vast open area available,(comparible to thier current size) but instead tend to prefer spending 90% of the time under my seemingly too successful shelter. ls this normal for young newly housed goldfish? Will they relax and swim more freely when they are more confident in their surroundings? I am loathed to remove the shelter just to see more of them as they clearly like it and are far safer from predators with it in place."

19 - 12 = ?
