My pond doesn't look as pretty this year, can't figure out why.  Bought my plants from the same place, maybe it was our late, cool spring.  The little guy is Ember.  The calico is Sparkle III, the oranda is Bugsy Magoo.  The single tail came in as an egg or fry in the plants last year.  His name is Flame.

We've been debating for years about putting in a pond in our back yard.  I would like to have some border plants, water fall and at least 3 feet deep by 3 feet wide in the center.  Maybe 10 by 10 total.  We live in Indiana.  Could the gold fish winter over ok in the pond if we had a floating heater?  Everyone seems to think so if it's deep enough in the center, but I thought I would ask the fish people their opinion.  Pond people may think differently.
Thanks,
Cindy

My guys survived just fine last winter in their 150 above ground Rubbermaid stock tank.  We live in southern Indiana.  I kept their Pondmaster 190 filter without the fountain attachment (just the pipe attachment) going all winter.  It did freeze over a couple of times, but not long enough to hurt them.
