    all this heat has made the water levels in my pond go down and im a little worried for my fish (goldfish). Can I just top it up useing water straight from the tap?

    Yes, I top up my pond with tap water. If you’re anxious about it, you can always test the pH before and after.

    yes, keep the water levels up especially when its warm and the water is evaporating. what donna said really – always check if you’re not sure.
