    It depends. If the pond was empty and they filled it from the hose, then they will have to add some dechlor or aerate the pond for a week or so to drive off the chlorine. Many koi people say, as a rule of thumb, that you can change up to 10% of the water without adding declor. The effect of chlorine on the nitrifiers of an established filter gets greatly exaggerated. Most pond people clean their filter medium with the hose, with no loss of nitrification. Even if they lose a lot of nitrifiers, a few small koi in a 5000 gallon pond will not raise the ammonia level in the pond significantly before the nitrifiers recover. I recommend they join the local Koi Club Check out this one. Koi people love to give advice.

    I would split them out sooner rather than later... decreased number of fish equates to better water quality, which equals to reduced hormones in the water - which can lead to loss in size or wen growth - and more water volume per fish, so a lot more forgiving of water parameters...

    Finally got a size on this thing. She is 9 grams. Quite the shrimp. She's getting some color though.
