How hot is the pond hun, remember they can take quite a bit of heat, and heat to a cooling trend will make them breed, well cold to hot will do it..but whats your temp?

Its hot but im sure your area cools down at night. I have had goldfish all the way to the 83F mark when they were sick, and never had a problem. Just make sure they have cover, when it gets hot they will go to the covered area to keep cool. Personally if there in a pond outside, dont try to adjust there temp cause it will cause cold spots and stress them out.

When i had a popup pond outside, i would have duckweed or lilly pads so they had cover from the heat. I also did water changes either early in the morning or late at night when i know that the temp of the water wouldnt bother them as much.

As for the breeding, I think i would let them do there thing, honestly I don't think they will do it this year, but you never know. My 1 1/2 year old did, but i didn't save her eggs knowing that shes just to young to have babies and most of them wouldn't make it or they would be deformed. Shes about 4-5" long right now. But since these fish are from a LFS you don't know really how old they are. So in my :twocents I would let them do what they do and not worry to much.

Hope this helps :D
