cichlids in my pond

Recommended Posts

Guest Art

I live in central New York state and have a pond of about 100,000 gal (about 50X70X10 ft. deep) It is mainly a Koi pond, also with minnows, channel catfish and some trout. My brother just told me that last week he put two cichlids (4-5 in.) from his tank into my pond! My question is: will they live and will they be a problem for the Koi? I would appreciate anyones input. Thank-you

They require warm water to live and will not tolerate the freezing temperatures like the Koi do.
