:( hey can anyone help me... I found one of my RES dead.. It was floating on the top of the pond. I think it may have been dead on the bottom for a while. Not sure how long... I look at my pond daily and did not see it dead on the bottom..?!?!? It had spurs on the eyes and some on the shell... Any idea what this may be.

So this is another dead one? I would do a water change on your pond and check your bio situation. If you aren't running a bio system then you really should look into one as it sounds like the bacteria levels are running amook in there.
