Staying at bottom of the pond

My new Kois are just staying at bottom of pond all curled up together, my question is why do they do that? When will they get active? -Aileen

Koi fish will hide at the bottom, in rocks or even in a skimmer basket when they are introduced into new surroundings.  Some people will float a couple pieces of Styrofoam on the surface to provide cover for the Koi so they will feel safer.  It can take two to four weeks for your Koi to get used to their new pond.
