    Poor babies =(, do you know if it is possible to keep koi indoors? I have always wanted to just have one little koi of my own inside so he could be protected from things like this…

  2. MyTvThesesdays says:

    Sorry bro for your loss. I had a pump fail on me two days ago and yah, my best Koi paid the price.

  3. IntegraGSR5 says:

    damn u sounded like u crying.

  4. Arteolike says:

    @esconsult1 Exactly!!! You should never add the pump that low to the bottom, if you wanted the bottom to have circulation you could have plumed it into a skimmer with a gravity Flo bottom drain, the pump would have only drawn to the bottom of the weir door, 8″ from the surface. It is kind of your fault because of of faulty planning. Plus you should have added a air diffuser on the bottom.

    That sucks!! Sorry

  6. esconsult1 says:

    @Arteolike There was some water left in the pond, but I suspect the oxygen ran out in the maybe 2 inches of water remaining.

  7. esconsult1 says:

    @ELTSBABY Nope. We live in Florida bud. The filter just busted. We did get a replacement filter, and that new one is working fine. I suspect that maybe a manufacturing defect?

  8. esconsult1 says:

    @xrayfeeney Also, there was maybe 2 inches of water left in the pond. The slightly smaller goldfish were able to live with just their backs out of it. The bigger Koi, no such luck.

  9. esconsult1 says:

    @xrayfeeney THe other fish left in the pond were some goldfish. Not koi.

  10. xrayfeeney says:

    You have other Koi still alive in the pond so Im wondering why you are blaming the filter for their death?
    True there is a crack but how did that kill some your fish and not the others.
    Im confused.

  11. greenslider says:

    The fishmate range are meant to be frost proof..so you are entiltled to a refund.

  12. jetmea says:

    howed they taste? herd they taste good wiv curry! but maybe they were dead for too long

  13. ELTSBABY says:

    Sorry for ya loss,looks like frost damage to the Fishmate filter

  14. Zeamus634 says:

    @Arteolike

    “Why did your pond drain anyway? your pond pump´╗┐ should NEVER such from the bottom”

    It wouldn’t matter anyway with my filters because they are suspended over one end of the pond.

  15. dolittle1992 says:

    I would be demanding a refund

  16. Arteolike says:

    You should sue them, stupid fish mate filter! I know i would, those koi are so beautiful, sorry for the loss.

    P.S. Why did your pond drain anyway? your pond pump should NEVER such from the bottom,

  17. chengaun says:

    Sorry For Your Loss. May Your Fishes Rest In Peace!

    Lousy Filter!

  18. diamantenios says:

    Oh my God :-( only a man who really knows how difficult is to grow fishes like this, can feel your loss. Really sorry too.
