 Hi
 I  have  a  3x1.5x1.5  ft  outside  cement  tank.  It  is  planted  and  as  mollies,  red  tail  shark,  pleco,  rosy  barb.
 Plants  are  in  pots.
 How  can  this  pond  be  managed  in  winters?
 Do  I  heat  it?
 Let  it  be  natural,  and  do  nothing?
 Bring  fishes  inside  for  the  winters?
 The  winter  temp  in  my  city  go  down  to  3-4  C  for  a  very  short  duration.  The  average  temp  in  nights  must  be  around  8-10  C.

 Move  the  fish  indoors  to  a  tank  for  the  winter.  None  of  those  fish  can  tolerate  low  temparatures.  They  are  "Tropical  Fish".

 I  wouldn't  even  suggest  goldfish  and  koi  as  the  water  temperatures  are  going  to  be  too  cold  for  even  them  !!  Move  your  fish  indoors  and  let  the  tank  remain  empty  (with  your  plants,  of  course).

 Thanks  all
 The  fish  will  be  shifted  inside  when  time  comes.  The  plants  will  remain  outside.
 Goldfish  &  koi  will  not  suit  my  pond  as  it  is  a  planted  tank.

 I  have  kept  my  fish  outside  with  out  any  problem  with  two  300  W  heaters.
 
 So  you  can  try  the  same.
