I cleaned my fish pond yesterday. Did not start the filter after filling, I had a leak. I quickly started it this morning. Woke this morning and he/she is lying on side and still breathing one fin still moving like it is trying to survive. I am absoutley sick if I killed this poor fish. Any suggestions?

Do you have any of the original pond water, make a sick tank out of the container you used to hold the fish while cleaning the pond. Make sure there is plenty of aeration and add pond salt to the water. Pond salt is average one cup to a thousand gallons.

Hope this helps... Craig
