I finally got the 300 gallon stock tank for my common snapper that I was supposed to get over a month ago. I was hoping I could put it in my basement but there is no way I can get it down there. I guess I'm going to have to keep it outside behind my house. I just wasn't sure when that would be ok to do. I live in NJ. I caught the snapper here a while ago so I know he can live here outside. It's been kinda cool some nights lately, going down to 30 last night, but it's also gone up to 70 during the day. Would he be ok outside soon even though he's used to 75-78? Also, in the winter, what is the best thing to do. Bring him in the house in a small tank, let him hibernate outside(if they can do that in the water), or get a pond deicer? Thanks for any advice you guys can give me.
