Those are "food"....Naturally occurring organisms which, left alone with baby fish would be eagerly accepted as food.....
They're related to the millions of naturally occurring copepods - nematodes, rotifers, mollusks and crustaceans that eventually end up living in and on the thousands of square feet of biofilm in the good, balanced ecosystem.
So the thing about Aquascape ponds is that they're simple to manage and they bundle up all their serious cleaning to once a year instead of a "little each day". The fish are exposed to natural elements for better and worse. I think they're great for the majority of people but they're not for everyone.
They are not a fish pathogen.
IF the fellow's fish are pinking up, that's a sign of stress - a closer look should be taken at:
- water temperature
- crowding levels (more than one inch per ten gallons of water?)
- new fish without quarantine
- possible fish wet mount biopsy if none of the above give it away.
