Re: Re:snow day

Yes, some do bring fish in... but where am I going to put hundreds of fish at?
Some are in excess of 2 ft long?  My pond is 5ft deep, so it doesn't freeze
solid and I do have a heater in it.  Problem is - drifting- It covered the
pond in snow and buried the heater!  Did dig part of it out today, and the
heater was working... just mounds of snow on top of it.  The problem is it
also causes total darkness and the plants tend to suck the oxygen out of the
water and oops...   My mother also has a pond but hers is not as deep and
holds most of the fish.... I have been yelling since last spring to catch them
and get rid of most.... she didn't.   We will see what happens....

[CHAT] Re:snow day

Can't really relate to the amount of snow, etc.....and
this might be really  
a dumb question.....but, don't most folks bring in the
fish  for the winter to 
the basement into a temporary pond???  I know a few
ponders that have done 
this for years, along with their tropical lilies,
etc.  I just assumed most 
folks do this too.   What  about the de-icers and
things like that which are to 
guard against losing  the fish, keeping an air
hole open????
