The question that a viewer had that was answered in number 32 of TheWeeklyRibbit was: can I put smaller fish in my pond with larger fish? That was a great inquiry. With any creature there is always a fear of the possibility that the larger creature will eat the smaller one, similarly to survival of the fittest.
In this case or pond..haha..the fear is that smaller fish will get eaten by bigger fish. Fear no more, you can indeed put smaller fish in your pond with larger fish and expect the smaller ones to stay alive. The one exception to this is catfish. Catfish will eat anything and might even go for the fish in your pond.
Pond fish will eat eggs, however, when they get to one or two inches long Koi, Golden Orfeâs, Shubunkins and Fantails will not eat other pond fish. Bigger turtles on the other hand may eat smaller turtles. If you plan on having different creatures in your pond do some research or feel free to ask us some questions. A couple of questions you can ask yourself or do some research on are:
âIt is imperative that you are aware of what is necessary for each creature so that they are able to thrive in their environment. Having a pond can be a lot of fun as much as maintaining it can require a lot of responsibility.
âDo not fret; do not be overwhelmed because we are here to help you. Do not be afraid to go out and get smaller fish for your pond, or even different creatures!!
