Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'm a biologist with a special interest in pond keeping. Some additional information about the situation will be useful. Did the koi die immediately when placed in the smaller area? What symptoms did they exhibit? Did you change all of the water in the pond? Do you always de-chlorinate the water? Do you still have any living fish? If so, how are they doing? What is the temperature in the water ? In past years, has your turtle hibernated, or do you live in an area where it stays warm? Sorry for so many questions, but the more information I have, the more likely it is I'll be able to figure this out. Thank you.
