Icy Cold Pond

I’ve heard the Thai expression of น้ำร้อนปลาเป็น น้ำเย็นปลาตาย “hot water fish survive, cold water fish die” before but of course it doesn’t mean literally that.  In my second sister and dad’s case, cold water was the cause for their fish to die. My dad buried the 1 comet and 2 koi fish in his backyard today.

Back to the Thai saying above, it actually means it’s easier to catch flies with honey than with vinegar. As you can see that it has nothing to do with fish or cold water at all.

    1. lady0fdarkness, it’s a good thing that my dad and sister have many in their fishpond, hopefully they won’t loose any more this winter.

    1. Thanks Dallas, must be their time. I noticed that they had ice on the surface of the pond last week, hopefully my dad quit feeding them.

  1. So the fish found themselves in hot water because of the cold water and died of it…. Did I get that right?
    Sorry to hear about that.

    Best wishes to you from Boonie and Mrs S

    1. Thanks Boonie, not literally like that I hope. I think the cold winter came so sudden, it was warm last month and we are hit with a cold front this month. If it happened gradually then their bodies would have been able to adjust to the cold water a lot better.
