…fish can get sunburn!
Having shade available in your pond is important for fish, especially during our hottest months. Classic signs of sunburn are redness or blistering of the scales adjacent to the dorsal fin. Light colored varieties of koi and goldfish are particularly susceptible. If a nearby tree doesn’t provide any shade, installing a pergola or a temporary Sun Sail are solutions. In a water garden, lilies are always a great option!
