no such thing as too much clean water, so go do a water change now.

You can rig come poles with fishing line over your pond and have them over your pond spaced about 1 to 2 feet apart. I have my own little pond with Koi, Bass, and Bluegill in it and the fishing line really keeps the birds out

Love the layout of your tank. Would love to have such a large tank...but space is my issue. Love the colors of the Oscars.
