Fluctuating temperatures! How to help your pond-fish fare during such whacky weather?

I’ve been in Melbourne the last few days and we’ve had some scorching hot weather, and some frosty cool weather in the same week! This is a reminder for me, that Melbourne has some “split personality” kind of weather.

Yours sincerely,
