I’m actually going to have to get something to keep our fish warm throughout the winter, and I have had the same several koi fish out in our pond for the past three years now.
I have gotten pretty attached to them, to tell you the truth, but during the spring plus the summer, I go out there every single day and sit by the pond to relax.
I feed them and some of them will even come up to eat right out of my hand. They have brought me a lot of joy over the past few years. The last thing I want to do is accidentally kill them because I let the water temperature get too cold while I was in the winter! The weather has already started cooling down here, and I’m starting to worry about what I’m going to do during the winter this season. The heating program that I had for our pond last year went out, and it’s not really working anymore at all. Even worse, the outdoor recreation and pond store that I usually go to went out of business at the end of the summer time plus so now I do not have anyone to ask our questions to. I have been looking online for different heaters for the pond, but for some reason, I keep on getting redirected to heating plus A/C websites instead of outdoor pond websites. I do not understand what is going on with that. I suppose I could just go ahead and call up the local heating and A/C company and ask them what their suggestions might be. I do not think that most heating plus A/C companies specialize in heating outdoor ponds for fish.
