Depends upon where you live. Goldfish come in many varieties...some cold hardy...some not. If you live in Florida, etc where the water temps rarely fall into 50 degree range, then go for some of the not so hardy goldfish. You could also try some tropicals (i.e. from local pet store) but these can get pricey and you should make sure they are as big as the gold fish now in the pond...otherwise you'll end up giving the larger gold fish a nice snack! Also, make sure you find out just how big those tropicals will get...they could end up eating the goldfish. The major drawback for tropicals is their lack of color, most of them will simply disappear in a large outdoor garden pond. There are some South American tropicals that are colorful but they are very pricey. All in all, the best fish for outdoor ponds are the various types of goldfish and or Koi. Do a Google on tropicals and see what you can find and also Google goldfish, you may be surprised at the variations!

If you have a mosquito problems, try some guppies...they are cheap, will eat the heck out of mosquito can barely see them but if you have floating plants they can survive the goldfish by hiding while they dine on the mosquitoes!

It depends on your climate. I would not recomend the same fish for Minnesota that I would for Nevada.

My pond water is very green

Hi toffeegirl1
The green color of your water is due to a high concentration of Algae.
If you have no fish in your pond, you can use some bleach (depending on the size of your pond, use about 2 caps full per 30 gallons) to kill the algae.
If you have fish in your pond, DO NOT USE BLEACH as it will kill your fish.

How do I get the fish I catch into my empty bottle?

Instead of catching a fish in the fishing pond, you need to find a shallow area of water (there's one in the Zora caverns near the Zora shop) and stand in it. Then, assign the empty bottle to a C button, and press that C button to use it. When you are near a fish in the shallow water and use your bottle, the bottle will scoop up the fish. You can then feed it to Jabu Jabu.

The jacuzzi magnum force pump can it be used for a fish pond

This is a lot of pump for a fish pond. You should use the safe-guards as you would find in a pool, two drain's separated by 3 or so feet and/or a couple skimmers. You dont want the fish getting pulled into the drains/skimmers. It will also be a lot of $ to run the pump compared to a smaller 'fish pond' pump ... of course your pond may be much larger than the average garden variety.

Personally, I dont think this is a good idea for a small pond. Tell me more about your pond.

Thanks for your question @
