In Reply to: Southern Painted...can they say in a pond year round?? posted by NOLA on April 08, 2003 at 10:44:02:
I live in nola so i know the climate, i think heating it would be a good idea, and maybe making some sort of make shift cover to keep the chill off in the winter, just for winter. When it gets cold, have an indoor tank set up, we know how those freezes sneak up on use twice a decade... anyways, mine stay inside... so i cant really comment on that,
:I currently have 2 southern pained, 2 maps, and 2 RES. I am looking at building a pond around 600-800 gal around 8'x5'x2'deep. I was wondering if anyone can tell me what they can take as far as low temps?? I live in New Orleans Louisiana so the winter is never really bad here. I know summertime is ok but should I or do I need to heat the pond in the winter and cover it at night is it gets real cold??? Or is that a bad idea and I should not keep them outside year round??
