      Should I be worried

      Hi people, this is my first post and am a rookie when it comes to keeping koi. Iíve had my pond and koi for about two and a half years and have never had any issues, until now (I think)! My fish eat the food eventually but not as quickly as they used to, they donít seem as interested. I brought some different pellets but still the same result. Yesterday I noticed pinkish translucent long thin, what I guess is pooh! Is this some thing to worry about or not?
      The ambient temperature in the uk over the last 6weeks has been fairly warm at least 15oc higher then the weeks before. Could this be a factor?

      It’s definitely waste. Seems they might be getting overfed. Since koi have no stomach they don’t hold onto their food like we do. Or like I do apparently... my wife says I need to do some sit ups. I just wanna do lay downs... but that’s a different story. The short of it- they’re probably not hungry. Give them a day or two off and see what happens. Nothing to worry.
