Goldfish emergency!

I'm really worried about my two Goldfish, Beau and Taboo, and their pond. Today it is 100 degrees out and all they are doing is sitting on the bottom. They'll move if I hit the side of the trough but nothing else. They have been like this ever since they went in the 100 gallon pond, a few days ago. My Pleco is loving the warm temp and is just fine, but I am really worried about the Goldies. The water is probably 80 degress, and I dumped a few icecubes into the water. I am SOOOOOOOOO worried. Whats wrong? What should I do? Their just sitting their next to eachother. Their not clamped or anything but sitting on the bottom not moving for HOURS. HELP!!!

Gold fish are cold water fish, ice cubes will change the temp very fast and might shock the fish..

Other then that I can't really tell whats wrong without a full sticky thread filled and pictures..

Absolutely. We solved the problem though, spent 100$ on LOADS of plants. They are now swimming around a lot now and really happy. :)
